Kim M. Burns

 Kim M. Burns, 63 years of Baileys Harbor, passed away Monday, May 30, 2022 at Aurora Bay Care Medical Center in Green Bay after complications following a stroke the week prior.

     She was born April 1, 1959, in Algoma, the daughter of the late Harold and Delores “Tootie” (Sternard) Kiehnau. Kim graduated from Gibraltar High School in 1977.

     Kim was self-employed and owned and operated TLC cleaning for most of her working life. She was a dedicated EMS technician with the Baileys Harbor rescue and its water rescue team.

     Kim was known as “Nana” to some and “MaMa” to everyone. She loved gardening and schooling David on how and where to plant along with riding her scooter. She was selfless, giving and kind. Kim was always thinking of others before herself. Being community minded, she served on her church council at Immanuel Lutheran Church and worked the voting polls as elections supervisor.

     Preceding her in death were her parents, Harold and Tootie Kiehnau, and husband, Robert C. “Louie” Oldenburg.

     Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, June 10, 2022 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Baileys Harbor with Pastor Gary Scharrig officiating. Burial will be at Baileys Harbor Town Cemetery.

     Friends may call from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 9, 2022 at Huehns Funeral Home and at the church on Friday, June 10, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. until the time of service at 11:00 a.m.

     County honors will be provided by Baileys Harbor Fire Department and EMS along with Door County Representatives.

     In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to help with expenses related to unexpected costs.
