- About Us
Kim Marie Hirstius was released into God’s loving arms on Friday, July 12, 2019. Kim was born on June 22, 1960 and raised in New Orleans, LA. She attended John Jay Beauty School in Slidell, LA and worked as a successful stylist for over 30 years in both Slidell and Mandeville, LA. She was very passionate about her career and her clients not only looked at her as their hair stylist, but also as a friend and confidant. Words that describe Kim by her family and friends were loving, caring, kind-hearted, a mother to many, and the life of the party. Her personality was infectious to all. Her passions were spending time with her family, vacations at the beach, boating, good music and dancing. She loved being around people and enjoyed conversations with just about anyone with which she came in contact. She loved her grandkids and they absolutely adored their “KK”. She was preceded in death by her father, Andrew J. Hirstius; her mother, Delores Marie Carbone Robin; her paternal grandfather, Andrew Hirstius, Sr.; her paternal grandmother, Evelyn Hirstius; her maternal grandfather, Joseph Carbone; her maternal grandmother Myrtle King; and her uncle, Paul Carbone. She is survived by her daughter, Kellie (Steven) Walker and her granddaughters, Penelope and Preslie; her daughter Jessica Callahan and her soon-to-be grandson Colston Andrew; her brother, Anthony Hirstius, her sisters, Debra La Pierre and Rosemary Manint, their families; and her very dear friend Louis Hightower. We will celebrate her life on Friday, July 26, 2019 at Abita Roasting in Madisonville, LA located at 504 Water Street from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., where friends and family will be able to honor and share beautiful memories of her.
