Connie Kirst left a message on December 16, 2010:
To the Family of Kari. Please accept my deepest sympathies for the loss of your beautiful daughter and sister. I had the pleasure of working with Kari at Community First. We also lost a child, our son Ryan died suddenly at the age of 22 to heart disease on Jan. 16, 2000. Please know you have been in my thoughts and prayers. With the help of family and friends and faith in God's love you will get through this. The grief will become less and less as time goes on. Right now all of this is very raw and hard to understand, but as time passes it will get easier. In six months it will be better and in a year you will think of her and wonder how that time passed because now time seems to drag. I hope to give you some reassurance that this will become better. Hold you family close, it will be comforting. God be with you. Connie Kirst

When I saw Kari's name I couldn't believe my eyes. She was a great person to work with at the Fox Cities Marathon. So happy all the time. Really made you feel good when being around her. Please bear with me because my wife has had cancer also and cherish all your memories of her as I will. Take Care, Al Neubauer

Jim and Judy, my deepest sympathy to you and the family. I did not know Kari very well but I can see that those who did thought the world of her. It looks like heaven has gotten a special angel. I pray the lord will give you strenght in the days to come to face the "wound that never heals." Tony
Janet Rowe left a message on December 15, 2010:
I was Kari's teacher at Hortonville High School. I had the pleasure of running into Kari a few years ago in a store after not having seen her since high school. What a delight to meet the lovely young woman she grew up to be. I'm so glad to have had that opportunity to find out where life had taken her and see, again, that great smile! My condolences on your loss. Janet Rowe, Hortonville High
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I had the pleasure of working with Kari for a few years at Community First Credit Union (I was in the IT department). What I remember most about her is that she was always smiling, always happy, and very personable, even if she wanted to throw her computer out the window. She was a genuinely nice person who left a lasting mark on anyone who met her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. I hope that you can find comfort knowing how much she was loved and that she will not be forgotten.
Sarah Dilley SPC left a message on December 15, 2010:
It is hard to believe that you have left us. I always thought of you as more than a person. More than a Daughter, sister, cousin, or even Captain. It seemed as if you were an angel that God wanted to share with us. You always touched everyone with that brilliant smile, soft gentle voice, and contagious laugh. Even when things seemed at their worse you were there encouraging and lifting up everyone’s spirit. I will lift my head up high and will not cry. I will not be sad for the time that we will not get with our very own Angel, but rather I will be happy for the time we did get to have with our Angel. We will find comfort in the knowledge that God called to you home to share you with others who need your guidance and uplifting spirit. We are thankful for the time that God gave us with our Angel Karin Deimer. You will always be remembered and will live on in our thoughts and hearts forever. Written By: SPC Dilley, Sarah A.

I am so sorry to hear about Kari. She had such a wonderful spirit. I recognized right away from the first day she came to work for me at Community First. Even though our paths very rarely crossed since I left there, I am better for knowing her. My condolences to the entire family. She will be missed.

To the Deimer family: I was one of the CNA's that worked with Kari at the hospital. I wanted to extend my condolences to your family. I only worked with Kari a few times but she was a beautiful woman and it was very clear how much love your family shared. I hope that you can take comfort knowing that Kari is in heaven watching over you just as you watched over her during this difficult time.

My deepest condolences to the Deimer family. I was Kari's "battle buddy" in OBC and couldn't imagine ever have going through it without her. She was such a special person and lit up people's lives as she touched them. She will truly be missed and the world was truly a better place for having her in it.
David and Sandy Cooley left a message on December 14, 2010:
Children are never supposed to die before we parents, and yet, as with Kari,she did. But, as you well know, in a larger sense she is not gone but she lives on in all who knew her and in all the good she did on this earth. With our heartfelt condolences, Sandy and Dave Cooley

Well, Captain Sunshine, I know you are at peace now. The things I will always remember about you is your smile and the way you were with people. You were one of the good ones that made life, and the world, a better place to be in. Thank you for the great memories I have working with you in "Meadowlands" Baghdad; the cigarettes I bummed from ya; and of course the laughs we all shared. You are definitely missed and always will be. Smile down on us as we will when we look at the sky and think of you. See you again someday Hun.

Chip Coenen left a message on December 14, 2010:
Jim, Judy and Family, I had the good fortune of previously working at Community First when Kari joined our Marketing Team. She lit up the credit union, just as she lit up the lives of your family and all people she came in contact with. She was a wonderful employee, so creative, so friendly, always ready to help and always exhibiting a positive "can do" attitude. Her great outlook on life was infectious. Kari was so well suited to the career choice she made in graphic design, just as I am certain she was a perfect fit for the Army National Guard. Our country is grateful for her service. I am very sorry for your loss. It does not seem fair that Kari was taken from us way too soon. However, God has a master plan. As difficult as it is to understand, part of the mystery of life and death, is placing our trust in God. Take solace knowing Kari is in Heaven and one day you will all be reunited with her and the other great people of this world. Chip Coenen, Appleton, WI

Captain Kari "Sunshine" Deimer, I had the pleasure and the honor of serving you as a fellow vet and a volunteer here at Zablocki VA. I had the honor of seeing your smiling face and your unshakable spirit and determination in the most difficult battle you've had to face. Those of us that had the honor of knowing you will never forget you, and when the sun shines, we'll know it's you helping God out with that, because that's just the woman that you are. Mr. Jim and Mrs. Judy Deimer, thank you so very much for allowing me to serve your family. It's an honor and a privilege. My thoughts and prayers are with you. You raised a beautiful daughter, as you know, and God obviously wanted his angel back. I hope that the outpouring of love and affection for your daughter is some consolation to your loss. She was well-liked and well-loved. She will be missed by many and forgotten by none. With Love and Honor, stacy mckinnon, HM1(R) DAV&DAVA

Deimer family, My prayers are with you all at this time. Kari has touched the lives of so many. I know you are all so very proud. You have every reason to be. Kari grew up a great role model for others, she learned from the best. I have grown to know you these past weeks, and you are all amazing people. I'm thankful that Kari was brought back into my life. I think knowing her just makes you a better person. Thank you for sharing Kari's stories with me. I'll never look at another tall tree without thinking of a tire swing :) Her smile will be missed on earth, but will make the heavens brighter! God Bless, Donna Rogers

Kari was such an inspiration to me and to many others. I will miss her smile and the small things she always did for everyone to make them smile. Kari has spread her wings and will now be watching over all of us. I miss her so much already and she will forever be in my heart, I will never forget her. Sending all of my love to her family and prayers.
