MCCC employee and former student dies

Kimberly Reaume, 27, an administrative assistant in the Financial Aid office, died unexpectedly Friday night after battling a long-term illness.

Reaume was a former MCCC student, and, during her time at the college, worked part-time as a student assistant after class.

“Helping students seek financial aid was her forte,” college president Dr. David Nixon said. “And those attributes eventually earned her a full-time job.”

According to the obituary in the Monroe Evening News, she was a loving daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. A lover of animals, but especially cats and penguins, she was kind, thoughtful, and a very giving person.

“During all the time of her illness, I never heard her complain. We are saddened by her death and grieve for family,” Nixon said.

According to the Monroe Evening News, friends may gather from 12:00-9:00 p.m., Monday, September 13, at Merkle Funeral Service, 2442 N. Monroe St., (734) 384-5185, with a Rosary led by Sister Pam Nosbusch OSF at 7:30 p.m. She will lie in state from 11:00 a.m. until the Mass of the Resurrection at 12:00 p.m., Tuesday, September 14, at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church, 8109 Swan Creek; Father Bill Tindall officiating. Procession will follow to the church cemetery for burial.
