Chong Im (Kim) Nevins 1948-2012

Chong Im (Kim) Nevins, daughter of the late Kyong Un Kim and Chae Suk Yang, was born January 9, 1948 in Korea where she grew up and attended school.

On August 29, 1971, Chong was united in marriage to the love of her life, Robert John Nevins in Winterhaven, California. They shared over 40 years of marriage together and three daughters: Lori, Tammy and Vicki.

Due to Robert being in the military, Chong and the family moved several times during his military career, but eventually settled in the St. Robert / Fort Leonard Wood area.

Chong loved taking care of her family and her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She loved spending time with them and took every opportunity to be with them. Chong enjoyed traveling and visiting new places, trout fishing, and cooking. She especially liked being outdoors; whether it was gardening, seeing the mountains or the ocean.

Chong was very active in her church, Victory Fellowship Church of God and was a faithful member. She would help any chance that she could.

Chong went home to be with her Lord Wednesday, May 30, 2012 in her home, after a courageous battle with cancer. She had attained the age of 64 years. She will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all those that knew and loved her.

Chong leaves to cherish her memory her husband Robert Nevins of the home; three daughters: Vicki Howe of Waynesville, MO: Tammy Mayer of Ft. Knox, KY: Lori Nevins of Columbia, MO: one brother Kim Yong Jun of Korea; five grandchildren: Robert Bell, Maddy Mayer, Mason Mayer, Katherine Howe and Elizabeth Howe; other relatives and friends.

In addition to her parents, Chong was preceded in death by one sister, Kim Chong Ae.
