Obituary for Kim Muehlemann

Kim Muehlemann
MUEHLEMANN, KIM, 56, of St. Louis, passed away Saturday, August 26, 2017, six months after a diagnosis of aggressive triple-negative breast cancer that proved to be the one thing in life that her unbelievable strength and stick-to-it determination could not overcome.

As lovely as ever and tucked under a warm comforter from home, Kim died surrounded by family, a best friend, and aware that her son was then enrolling in college to keep himself on the path toward the unbridled future she dreamed for her two amazing kids. In the words of that son, Ryan, and his sister, Maddie, Kim lived vibrantly with confidence, compassion, fight, resilience, cleverness, bravery, smiles and strength. She was hilarious, inspirational, fun-loving, hard-working, clever, crafty, kind-hearted, an animal lover, a green-thumb gardener, a fashionista and absolutely beautiful. Also, a bad-ass.

Kim Truesdell Muehlemann was born in St. Louis on January 19, 1961, to Jack and Joanna Truesdell, the third of four siblings. She swam through her childhood summers and nurtured lifelong friendships through Webster Groves High School, the most enduring of which stretched back to the Warson Woods neighborhood where she grew up. She explored careers that ranged from managing a high-end dress shop to managing brokerage accounts to managing administrative duties at St. Andrews Resources for Seniors. But while she devoted herself to each place and to the many people and friends that came along with them, none matched the role of devoted mom (and momma bear) she valued most. Kim's bright light and legacy live on through Ryan, a student at Lindenwood University; daughter Maddie; husband, Douglas, whom she married in May 1995; her mother; her sister Deb Truesdell Magee and her husband, Dave, and their kids Tom Magee and Jody Brent; her brother Jeff Truesdell and his husband, Nelson Figueroa; her sister-in-law Krystal Phillips; a niece, Megan Truesdell Hager; six additional brothers-in-law and three more sisters-in-law; another 12 nieces and 12 nephews; four great-nephews; and one great-niece. The father she loved immensely died in 2009; her younger brother, Steve Truesdell, a steadfast compadre whom she embraced as a best friend, died two months earlier on June 24, 2017.

A life celebration will take place Wednesday, September 6, at Bopp Chapel, 10610 Manchester Road in Kirkwood, with a reception from 4-6 p.m. and the sharing of memories at 6 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider the Muehlemann Kids College Fund at https://www.youcaring.com/ryanmuehlemannandmaddiemuehlemann-930572, set up by Ryan and Maddie’s uncle Jeff Truesdell and cousin Jody Brent, to support the future higher education success of Ryan and Maddie, as Kim wished.
