McCOOK, Nebraska -- Kimberly Ann Campbell of Holdrege, formerly of McCook, passed away Monday, July 2, 2012, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney after a courageous battle with cancer. She was 44 years old.
Kimberly was born on July 23, 1967, in Fullerton, California. At an early age she moved with her family to McCook where she attended McCook Schools.
