Kim Mary (Montplaisir) Coyle, 62, of Nashua passed away peacefully on July 19, 2021 at home surrounded by her loving family.
Over the past 21 years she has fought a courageous battle against multiple cancers. Through it all, she never complained or let it interfere with her zest for life. Her physical and mental toughness are beyond words.
Kim was born in Manchester, NH on Aug 15, 1958 to Nancy (Krajewski) Montplaisir and the late Ronald Montplaisir Sr. She was the loving husband of Kevin Coyle for 40 years.
Growing up on the west side of Manchester; Kim attended West High School and was an All-state band member playing the clarinet. She was also a member of the tennis team and majorettes. She graduated in 1976.
Following high school, Kim attended the University of New Hampshire from 1976 to 1980 and graduated with a BS in Business. While attending UNH, Kim met her husband Kevin as a freshman and they got married on June 27, 1981. They recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary at Mohegan Sun casino with their "LaHa" friends.
Besides her mother Nancy, Kim leaves behind her husband Kevin Coyle and their children Jamison Coyle of New Jersey and Jesse Coyle of Chicago, IL. She is also survived by a daughter-in-law, Leah Coyle of NJ; the daughter she never had and 2 grandsons Jaxson and Mason Coyle of NJ. In addition, Kim also leaves behind her brother Ronald Montplaisir Jr of Manchester, NH. She is survived by a sister-in-law Kathy (Coyle)Donovan and her husband Daniel of Nashua and nieces Julie (Donovan) Guay and her husband Cory and son Nathan of Nashua, Allison Donovan of Merrimack, NH and nephew Jeffrey Donovan and wife Taryn (Zamary) of Connecticut.
Kim also enjoyed the company of her grand-dogs, Marley and Stanley and said they were the best dogs that anyone could have.
Kim and Kevin made Nashua their home for the last 40 years and she worked for many years as an accounting manager.
Kim and Kevin raised their two boys in Nashua and would attend EVERY baseball, hockey, basketball, parent-teacher conference or "you-name-it" event. It didn't matter if they were local or involved travel, they never missed out. Her boys were the center of her life from the moment they were born and still are today.
Kim enjoyed traveling, gambling, pickleball, tennis and golf. She also had the reputation for baking the world's best chocolate chip cookies and never missed the chance to plan a great party. Arts and crafts were her specialty, and she was way ahead of the curve before Etsy shops became a thing. Her passion for the local teams ran deep, cheering for the Red Sox, Bruins and Patriots. She also loved attending Josh Groban concerts with her son Jesse.
Kim loved to travel and would always take the lead planning family vacations. Cruising was always a family favorite, island hopping from Key West, Grand Cayman, Bahamas, Guadalupe, Aruba, Cozumel, Jamaica and too many more to count. At the top of her bucket list was a trip to Norway. After two unsuccessful attempts due to surgery and a global pandemic, Kim switched up her plans, opting to rent a beach house in the Outer Banks as well as a trip to Cancun, Mexico. Both were PERFECT replacements because she spent the remaining time she had with her kids and grandkids.
Her grandsons call her "Rep". That's because Jaxson, the oldest of the two, attempted the name Gram and instead "REP" was all he could say. Unique to say the least, Kim loved it, and the nickname was coined that day!
Kim loved the beach. She was the proud owner of a small North Hampton beach condo that sat about 25 yards from the Atlantic Ocean. She would frequent what she called "the beach closet", spending time reading a good book or just sitting on the balcony, doodling or people watching. Kim also enjoyed when her grandkids made the trip from New Jersey and could spend a few days soaking up the sun and sand!
Kim always loved baking. She could make delicious pies, cakes or fancy desserts, but her claim to fame in the kitchen was whipping up a batch of the BEST chocolate chip cookies.
Kim has always loved to gamble. Trips to Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun were often on the agenda but she never turned down a trip to Vegas either. She would often head west to meet up with her son Jesse, to catch a Josh Groban concert on the strip.
Kim would often frequent La Hacienda to be in the company of her "LaHa" crew, sharing margaritas and stories with close friends.
Most of all, Kim enjoyed the company of her family. Even in the last few weeks of her life, she made the trip to New Jersey to watch Jaxson and Mason's baseball and hockey games; as well as each of their birthday parties.
To those who knew her; they always said how photogenic she was. Kim had a smile that made everyone around her feel better, and that never left her.
