Kimberly C. Groglio, 61

For almost the next 20 years, while raising her own children and volunteering, Kim taught many happy preschoolers at the Darien Nature Center. She enjoyed her days there in the wonderful natural outdoor environment.

Kim was happiest spending time with her family in and around the water (or ocean) especially her favorite spots in Maine and Charleston, South Carolina. She loved to travel and was always planning the next trip.

She was an enthusiastic animal lover and always enjoyed rescuing cats throughout her life. She loved summer days at the beach, riding the waves and treating herself to favorite homemade ice creams.

Survivors, in addition to her husband and children include her sisters, Suzanne Nixon of Maine, Kristine Castay of Massachusetts, Kyle Smith of New Hampshire, their families, her parents and her in-laws.

Kim was a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister, colleague, teacher and friend. She will be missed by all those whose lives she touched. She and her family are forever grateful to those who stuck by her and helped during her deadly illness, including the excellent staff and friends at Whittingham Cancer Center.

A private celebration of life will be held at her favorite spot in Maine.

Donations in Kim’s memory may be made to Metavivor, an organization devoted to the advancement of research to find cures for Metastatic Breast Cancer, of which there are currently none, or the Metastatic Breast Cancer Project (a research collaborative between MIT’s Broad Institute and Harvard and MBC patients).
