OBITUARY: Kimberly Anne (Field) Gold, 60

Below is an obituary from Nichols Funeral Home:

WILMINGTON, MA — Kimberly Anne (Field) Gold, age 60, of Hudson, passed away surrounded by family on July 27, 2022, following a courageous battle with cancer.

Kim was born on September 14, 1961, in Winchester, MA. She was the youngest of four daughters of the late James and Hildred (Bishop) Field. She was the devoted mother of Melissa Gold & her partner Shylicia Heyward of Boston, a loving sister of Joyce Murray & her husband James of Wilmington, Janis Field of Wilmington, and Debra Bayer & her husband Dave of Whitinsville. Kim is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews, (April & Joe Kingston, Allyson & Mark Bachta, John Fairhurst, and James & Kristen Fairhurst), cousins, and life-long friends, especially the Gerades.

Kim and her sisters were raised in Wilmington by Silver Lake where she learned to swim and skate. As a kid, Kim spent as much time under the hood of a car and pounding out body damage as she did in the kitchen. She loved York Beach, camping, baking, and singing along to her favorite songs.

Kim did many things before fulfilling her dream of being a pastor. She started her journey as a pastor in Wilmington, then in North Andover, and most recently in Hudson and Marlborough. She was a student in the Master of Divinity program at Boston University School of Theology. Kim was an outspoken evangelist who incorporated social justice and human rights issues into her preaching and ministry.

Kim’s smile and fun-loving nature will be missed by those who knew and loved her. She taught us the importance of having fun, being noisy, making a mess, and making a difference.

Come gather with Kim’s family and friends to celebrate her life at the Wilmington United Methodist Church, 87 Church Street, (Rte. 62), Wilmington, on Wednesday, August 10th at 1:00 p.m.

Memorial donations in Kim’s name may be made to The Wish Project or Project Bread.
