The Valdosta Daily Times
Kimberley Ann Emmons, of McKinney, Texas, passed away Feb. 13, 2013. Kimberley was born Sept. 15, 1967, in Riverside, Calif., to William Hager and Peggy Diane (Sloan) McElhanon. Kim attended Sierra High School in Colorado Springs, Colo., and moved to Valdosta, Ga., in 1996, where she went on to graduate from Valdosta State University in 2000. She was a pharmaceutical sales representative and great fan of college football and especially loved the Georgia Bulldogs. Kim was an avid athlete and a certified personal trainer.
