Kim was born on Aug. 22, 1977, in Canon City, Colo., to Patrick and Diane (Noel) Bobo. She was the oldest of four children and grew up in a military family that moved every few years so she had many childhood homes and many friends scattered across the country. Being the oldest child, she was always such a help to her three brothers growing up. She was born to be a mother and took to it so naturally.
Her last military "home" was Mountain Home AFB.
She graduated from Mountain Home High School in 1995.
She married the love of her life, Donald (Donnie) L. Pentland, Jr., on Aug. 12, 1995, in Mountain Home, and shortly after relocated to Kuna to begin their lives together.
Kim lived life to the fullest and dearly loved her family. She home-schooled her two children, Aurora Jade, 13, and Justis Stone, 11, and ensured they received a well-rounded and varied education.
She loved to scrapbook on Saturday nights with her dear friend Danielle while their children played together.
She belonged to a LIFTID (Ladies In Faith Together, Idaho) group and met each Friday to praise God.
Survivors include her husband, Donnie, daughter Aurora and son Justis of Kuna, parents Patrick and Diane Bobo of Anchorage, Alaska, brothers Erik (Lil), Nick and Tyler (Sarrina) Bobo, all of Alaska, father-in-law Donald Pentland, Sr. and mother-in-law Connie Pentland, both of Mountain Home, and many other aunts, uncles and cousins throughout the country.
She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Lloyd and Helen Bobo, and maternal grandparents, Max and Aileen Noel.
Special thanks to the staff on Four South at St. Luke's Regional Medical Center in Boise, the CCU at St. Luke's Meridian and to the many hospice nurses and staff.
