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.
In February of 1979 she married Robert Carl “Louie” Oldenburg. They had two children, Kasey, and Robert. He preceded her in death March 22, 1994. On May 21, 2005, she married David “Dave” R. Burns in Baileys Harbor.
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.
