Kimberly was born February 9, 1965, in Los Angeles, CA to the parents of Jimmy and Gloria Tinsley. Kimberly accepted Christ at an early age. Kimberly received a BA from the University of Phoenix, and was an Honor Roll student. She furthered her education, by learning sign language. Kimberly met and married Samuel Oden, to this union their only son, Alexander was born. Kimberly owned Alexander Family Home, which assisted mentally challenged adults. She enjoyed her career at the Los Angeles County Probation Department, were she worked for 5 years as a Clerk. She will be greatly missed by her co-workers. Kim was very creative, she made gift baskets, and jewelry; she also enjoyed knitting, singing and modeling. On sunny days Kim enjoyed riding her Harley Davidson Motorcycle or shopping. She loved eating candy, especially Gummy Bears, Starburst and Jolly Ranchers. Her favorite R&B Artists were, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and MaDonna. Kim was also an avid reader. Kim was lovable, kind, humble and helpful to others, with an outgoing personality. Kim was preceded in death, by her parents Jimmy and Gloria Tinsley, grandmother Estelle Alexander, and an uncle Joe Willis. She leaves to cherish her memories, her son, Alexander Oden, her brother Timothy (Nokia) Tinsley, sisters: Denise Edwards, and Robin Alexander; an uncle Hilbert Tinsley, ex-husband, Samuel Oden, and a host of loving nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends. She blessed us with her presence, and now she is with her Father and Savior, we shall see her again for the body is only a vessel. Kim was precious and she will forever remain in our hearts.
