Kimberly Marie Rubel (47), of Tyrone, Ga. passed away on Tuesday, October 31, 2017. She was welcomed to heaven by her grandparents, Dr. and Mrs. Louis L. Rubel and Mr. and Mrs. William Mullins.
Kim was born in Dallas, Texas on October 2, 1970 and grew up in Bedford, Texas until 1986 when she moved with her parents to Georgia. She graduated from McIntosh High School and University of Georgia at Valdosta with a Bachelor’s degree in education. She taught for seventeen years at Oak Grove Elementary School and was currently a Pre-K teacher at Kids R Kids pre-school. Kim was that special teacher who would dress up like the Statue of Liberty in order to teach her students; she loved them all.
Kim was very involved with her children such as being cookie mom, for the whole area, for her daughter Maddie’s girl scouts and working many events for the Sandy Creek High School Band, for which her son Hunter plays the trumpet. Kim loved to travel with her friend Melanie and with her family. She was an expert in specialty sewing and loved to monogram for anyone; she loved her crafts. One of Kim’s favorite things to do when the whole family could get together was watch our beloved Dallas Cowboys and try to out yell her siblings.
Kim is survived by her children, John Hunter Morgan, II (16) and Madison Marie Morgan (12); her parents, David and Paula Rubel; her brother and his wife, Robert and Sheila Rubel; sisters, Teri Rubel Juarez and Tammy Rubel; aunt, Jere Mullins; many nieces and nephews who she doted on; and hundreds of other relatives and friends.
Visitation was held at Peachtree City United Methodist Church on Friday, November 3, 2017 from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. Memorial services followed at 2 p.m. with Rev. Sean Robinson officiating the service.
Kim was a very giving and compassionate person who would help you whether you wanted it or not. She got that from her Mom and Aunt Jere. The family would like to encourage everyone to go out and do a random act of kindness in her name, she would so love that.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like to encourage donations to the Georgia Special Olympics at www.specialolympicsga.org.
Arrangements were made under the direction of Carmichael-Hemperley Funeral Home & Crematory, 135 Senoia Road, Peachtree City, Ga, 30269.
