Kimberly Ann Hankal

January 16, 1967 ~ July 1, 2022

Our Savior Jesus Christ has called our very special angel, Kimberly, to come home. Heaven in all its glory has opened the gates where she has been joyously greeted by so many loved ones and most importantly, Jesus and his blessed mother.

We will miss her dearly. Kimberly was a beautiful, compassionate, and loving soul. She showed so much grace and acceptance of God’s will during her struggles fighting a horrible disease.

Kimberly was born in Salinas, Ca and moved to Turlock when she was recruited to run track for Stanislaus State University. She became a Two Time All American in track and field and was inducted into the Stanislaus State Hall of Fame.

Kimberly enjoyed a career as a kindergarten teacher and touched the lives of so many students. Her family was always a priority. She was a truly wonderful and unselfish soul. Her life was centered around her family, her home, and her garden. She loved the outdoors. Her camping trips with her family were her most treasured memories. Yes, there is a special angel in heaven. She will be missed, but never far away. She is in every fiber of our being. We loved her so very much.

Kimberly is survived by her mother and father, Alfred and Dorothy Becker of Salinas. Sisters Lisa Phelps and Amy Becker of Salinas and Prunedale. Brother Alfred Becker of San Ramon. Daughter Elizabeth Hankal, Son Jacob Hankal, and husband of nearly 32 years, David Hankal of Ceres, Ca.

A Memorial Mass will be held on Tuesday, July 19 at All Saints University Parish in Turlock, Ca beginning at 10am.

    My dear sister Kim,
    I will always cherish you in my heart and you will be my special Angel from Heaven. I know you will be with me always as I will always be with you. May you spread your wing and fly free. Until we meet again…I love you forever.

    My dear daughter I so wish Jesus would have let you stay with us longer. But sweetheart, I cannot bear to see you suffer here on earth when Jesus promised you a heavenly home in paradise. Jesus, through your suffering , has had miracles happen in the hearts of many you have touched throughout your kind compassionate life. I love you so much and my greatest joy was to be your mom. You will always be my hero and I will always carry you in my heart until we are once again reunited in heaven with all our loved ones.
    Kim, it is so hard to let you go but Jesus is calling you home.
    “Come and follow me, I will lead you home I love you and you are mine”

    I love you

We had good time and bad but we always had fun together. Even though we lost contact we each other I always wondered how you were doing. I will also remember you as my dear friend, Rest In Peace.

    So truly amazing to witness the love, strength, and unity shared within the Hankal Family these last few years. Kim was a tough and incredible woman, and had a smile that definitely left a lasting impression. Fly high, Kim. Rest in peace.

    In life there are few people we meet that we can connect to and share our days with. You have always been that person for me, and I want to thank you for that. I am going to miss you Kim and will cherish my precious memories of you always. You will remain with me forever in my heart and I will greet you with open arms when we meet again.
    God Bless You & Sleep with Jesus
