Kimberly Anne (Filip) Zanks, 38,of Tolland, beloved wife of Jeffrey Zanks and amazing mother of Cody and Kyle Zanks passed away on February 19, 2021. Kim was born on October 20th, 1982 in Rockville, to Alice (Klee) Geci and the late Joseph Filip. Cody and Kyle were everything to Kim, she was a devoted and loving mother to her boys.

She proudly worked for Fenton River Animal Hospital in Stafford and Tolland and spent many years working for Ellington Animal Hospital prior to her move to Fenton. Everyone will remember Kim, for her infectious smile and amazing laugh. She was the glue to her friends, the life of the party, the first one to jump in on all Sunday Funday celebrations, the most genuine, caring person anyone could ever meet. Cody and Kyle describe her as the nicest person and the best mom ever.
Other than her treasured husband, Jeff and her cherished sons, Cody and Kyle, she leaves her mother Alice Geci with maternal grandparents, William and Gloria Klee; and her mother and father-in-law, Barbara and Jim Zanks. Kim was predeceased by her father, Joseph Filip and her prized step father Andy Geci.

Needless to say, I was shocked to read of Kimberly's passing! She was always so full of life and I never saw her without a smile! Her dad and my late husband were cousins and lived in the same apartment building (1st and 2nd floors )when they were young. Her dad bowled at TKB with the rest of us. Kim was so cheerful and friendly to everyone. I missed her when she left ECAC but was pleased to hear she was still working with animals and people. She was perfect for that interaction. My heart goes out to Jeff and the boys at this most difficult time. Always remember what a happy person Kim was and that's she's now shining her light in Heaven! Our loss it Heaven's gain - another angel to watch over her loved ones.

For many years Kim's smile and greeting was the first thing I'd see whenever I walked into ECAC. She seemed to know everyone. She even knew many of us by our cars and greeted us by name whether or not she expected us. She knew our pets and cared about them. Her smile and sense of humor gave the waiting room a warm, welcoming atmosphere. Our sincerest condolences to her family. -The ODonnells
