Kim was an amazing person. She added a spark to the counter crew that no one will ever fill. She had a heart of gold and an ear for everyone. We still miss her dearly at The Chalet. My deepest sympathy for your great loss.

Kim and I have been friends since high school, and I am very fortunate to have been able to maintain that friendship through the years. Kim helped a shy 9th grade girl from St. Peter's School become braver, more willing to try new adventures, and become more self confident about who I could be. We shared some very good times and also a few sad times over the years. I couldn't be happier, Kim, that you were my friend, and you will always be in my thoughts. My sympathy to Heather & Heidi, and all of the Derleth family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To the Derleth, and Hussli families, I didn't know Kim, I had spoken to her a few times In search of my favorite teacher of all times, her sister Melody. I lived In Racine at the time she was my teacher. Kim MUST have been a wonderful person. I'm certain It was in the genes. Her photo tells me a lot about her. I am so sorry you have lost you're loved on, and I offer my sincere condolences to all of you.

I'll always be grateful to Kim for her guidance and support, and for the many fond memories and good laughs we shared. Her devotion to the school district, especially to BDHS and its students, knew no bounds. Praying for the family's comfort and healing as you celebrate this life very well-lived.
