February 10th, 2021
Tetonia, ID - Loving wife, niece, cousin, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, and friend Kimberly (Kim) Kaye (Mitchell) Donald passed away after a brief illness on Wednesday, February 10th, 2021 at a hospital in Idaho Falls. She was 64 years old.

Kim was born April 7th, 1956 to Jerrold and Jayne (Pratt) Mitchell in Omaha, NE. Growing up, Kim lived several years in Littleton, CO (now Centennial) where she was active in theater. In 1973, her family moved to Missoula, MT where she graduated from Hellgate High School. Later, Kim moved with her parents to California residing lastly in Temecula where she was preceded in death by both her parents.

In 2004, she reunited with her high-school sweetheart, Steve Donald, and they married in March 2005. From Temecula, they moved to Post Falls, ID and then to Tetonia, ID where they were in the process of building their dream home in view of the Tetons.

Kim worked as a certified bookkeeper and was employed by Paubox, Inc. as a billing specialist.

Kim has a special eye and gift for both beauty and humor. Many of her social media posts and pictures highlighted the beauty and the unique lifestyle that is the West. Kim was a lover of dogs--she had several rescue dogs through-out her life and was looking forward to another pet upon the completion of their home.

All who knew Kim loved her and enjoyed her company. At present, it is the intention to inter Kim with her parents in Temecula.

Kim was the most beautiful soul, inside and out. She was so full of life and stories and when she came to the salon she would bring smiles to everyone’s faces! She worked hard and loved her husband so dearly. Sheleft a really sweet impact on our lives and will be so so missed by all that knew her!

Kim was my first friend when we moved to Colorado in March 1971. I was terrified to go to school that my previous school, new kids were ostracized for a very long time. Not so with Kim. It was even somewhat a fluke that I was even in her class...I had gone to one other theater class that was more intro, stopped in at the office where they switched my schedule to join Kim's class..just before lunch. I was invited by her to join them for lunch and it all started from there. Eventually, she would meet Steve and, while their romance was interrupted for a couple of decades 😉, when she found me again, it was like we had never been out of touch. We were both happy to have her back in our lives.

I miss her already. 💔

From Paubox:
In Remembrance of Kim Donald

We asked the Paubox team about their memories of working with Kim. Here are the responses.

What was your favorite part about working with Kim?

Evan Fitzgerald, Director of Finance: Kim always came to work with an extremely positive attitude. She was always busy and was one of the hardest workers but never seemed to get stressed or agitated from all the requests people threw her way. She always remained joyful and cheerful and that type of energy is quite contagious and a pleasure to work with.

Emir Ibrahimbegovic, Director of Engineering: How easy going she was no matter what it was about. Even if the conversation led to her doing more work, she never once objected or even protested additional billing work.

Hoala Greevy, Founder & CEO: Her diligent work and upbeat demeanor in an important part of the business (billing)

Greg Hoffman, Account Executive: She was so reliable and had an amazing sense of humor. One of my favorite Paubox employees for sure!

Paul Giovacchini, Customer Success Manager: Kim was one of the most helpful people I've had the pleasure of working with. No matter how small the request was, Kim was always there to help when I was at a loss for answers.

PJ Printy, Inside Sales Representative: Her persistence, hardworking nature, and great sense of humor.

Rick Kuwahara, COO: Kim was simply amazing. Always willing to pitch in and help when needed and was always so positive. Even when things got hectic and busy, she acknowledged it, but was never daunted by a challenge. I felt confident whenever there was a task Kim was handling, knowing it would get done well.

Robert Ogus, Technical Support Engineer: Kim was a team player with a great personality. Extremely reliable. She always took the time to help me whenever I needed help with anything... making sure I got the information I was looking for or the assistance I needed. Tremendous amount of respect here for Kim's professionalism as well as her humor. She made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion.

Sierra Reed-Langston, Marketing Manager:She was so very sweet and was amazing to work with.

Travis Taylor, Account Executive: Kim is one of the nicest people to work here. She was determined to perform well and her numbers proved it. She was always willing to lend a helping hand, quick to answer my questions and willing to drop what she was doing if I requested her assistance.

Tyler Clark, Customer Support Specialist: Asking her questions. She ALWAYS was willing to help me regardless of how weird of accounts I brought to her attention, which was quite a few she realized.

Do you have any stories about Kim you'd like to share?

Evan Fitzgerald, Director of Finance: Kim was amazing at her job. She was so good at collecting payments from customers in a timely manner that we gave her the nickname Cash Money Kim after the video of Randy Moss being asked how he was going to pay for his fines and he said "Straight Cash Homie". In Q3 2020 Kim was crushing her quarterly goals and I decided to get her a Randy Moss jersey to go along with her nickname. One of my favorite memories was watching her wear that Randy Moss Jersey to one of our Monday meetings.

Emir Ibrahimbegovic, Director of Engineering: She was the first person to welcome me to Paubox. It's always nerve wracking the first day you start at a new company. When you say hi and you don't really know if anyone is working in your timezone and if anyone would respond and when. About two minutes in, Kim responded.

Greg Hoffman, Account Executive: Cash Money Kim was all time! There isn't just one story that defines her. I honestly can't think of one bad thing to say about here. Miss you Kim!

Rick Kuwahara, COO: Maybe not a story, but I had the pleasure of discovering Kim on Upwork initially. I've been through a lot of freelancers and never met one better than Kim, it just blew me away that she wasn't working at a company somewhere and we were so fortunate she was available. I felt so lucky and fortunate when she agreed to come on full-time.

Tyler Clark, Customer Support Specialist: I always felt close to Kim as soon as I began slacking her. She was funny, I understood how her environment worked since working in collections for 8 years. We loved to "smash talk" customers that requests were funny, ridiculous and over the top. She always mentioned I tended to make her laugh in each interaction we had. I always was happy to reach out to Kim when a billing question came just to chat with her.

Is there anything you'd like to say to Steve?

Evan Fitzgerald, Director of Finance: Kim was such an awesome person and we were lucky to have her work here at Paubox. It's been tough for me to accept the fact she is no longer with us and I can't imagine how it has been for you. I want to express my deepest condolence and if there is anything we can do to help please let us know. You are part of the Paubox family :)

Emir Ibrahimbegovic, Director of Engineering: Steve, I am really sorry for your loss. I never personally met Kim, but her passing away was a shock and devastating news for me and everyone else in the company. She was hands down one of my favorite people at Paubox.

Hoala Greevy, Founder & CEO: Although none of us got the chance to meet Kim in person, she is fondly remembered at Paubox and will be missed.

Greg Hoffman, Account Executive: Steve I am so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine how you are feeling and really have no words. All I can say is that I feel extremely lucky to have gotten to know Kim and work with her. My sincere condolences Steve. She was a great one!

PJ Printy, Inside Sales Representative: Kim will be so missed. I work in the sales department so I communicated with her very frequently. I really enjoyed her great sense of humor and was very lucky to have been able to work with her as long as I have.

Paul Giovacchini, Customer Success Manager: I'm sorry for your loss. I hope the memories and joy you two shared over the years provides a degree of comfort to you during these difficult times.

Rick Kuwahara, COO: I am so sorry for your loss, Kim was a delight to work with and such a great person. Please let us know if we can be of any help to you and your family.

Robert Ogus, Technical Support Engineer: I'm very sorry for your loss, Steve. I'd like to extend my deepest sympathy to you.

Sierra Reed-Langston, Marketing Manager: I'm so sorry for your loss Steve. Kim is now your guardian angel and I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Tyler Clark, Customer Support Specialist: She was amazing for the brief time I knew her and was one of my favorite people at Paubox. I am so sorry for the loss.

Is there anything else you’d like to share?

Emir Ibrahimbegovic, Director of Engineering: The passing away of the colleague impacted me more personally than I would have thought. This has been a major morale shock for everyone on my team, including me. Don't think anyone worked closely with her from my team, I am perhaps the one working with her the most. This is highly unusual, given that we never met in person.

Robert Ogus, Technical Support Engineer: I miss Kim a lot. Her absence is strongly felt, both on a professional and personal level.

Travis Taylor, Account Executive: Overall, really bummed I did not get to meet her in person or say goodbye. I think it speaks volumes how much she impacted us by being an honest person and diligent worker. I felt very fortunate I had her for our Secret Santa. Even without meeting her in person, Kim left her mark on every department here at Paubox. We dedicated our monthly team building event last Friday to Kim and mourned her loss together. When she first went into the hospital, we sent her an ecard with personal notes from her teammates. This was her response:

You guys are absolutely the best. This has been an awful week and hearing from you made me smile and cry a little. Cash Money will be back soon! Love you all!

Kim will be missed. ☹

I had the great honor of being a co-worker with Kim over 20+ years ago in California. Our relationship along with another co-worker Ali Marquez became one of true best friends even after we all went our separate ways. We maintained contact thru the years and we grieve now for a wonderful, funny and happy friend who loved life. If you were one of the lucky ones to be a Facebook friend, you saw in pictures her zest for all living things but especially the Tetonia area of Idaho. Happy, Excited, Humor, In Awe, and most of all LOVE with her husband Steve who was the love of her life. We mourn her loss and strive to carry her zest for life with us forever. Love you Kim: Gail and Chris Thompson of Farr West Utah.

Even though Kim was my sister in law, married to my brother, Steve, we didn’t see each other often. Our lives had us living in different parts of the country. But I know Kim was Steve’s soulmate and their finding each other again made them both so very happy. I could see her humor and joy by her Facebook posts and her pride in the home Steve was building for her. Her unexpected illness and that she was unable to recover from it has been very sad for me and I regret not seeing her sooner. Any pain she was having is gone and she is resting with her parents and I know she will be Steve’s Guardian Angel. We love you, Kim. Mark and Sharon Donald Scherdin. Castle Rock, Colorado.
