|Let the memory of Kim be with us forever|
We, her colleagues and friends at IHG, have created this site in memory of Kim Hucker, and as a way for our work colleagues to share stories and messages about Kim with her family and friends.
Kim was the beloved wife of Alf, loving mother and mother in law of Sian and Jabin, Erin and Ryan. Kim was also the cherished Mim to Archie, Asher and Clae, the adored daughter of HJ and Ron (deceased), and a fond sister to Michele and Lisa.
Kim brought an unsurpassed energy and compassion to every situation and person she met, and a wonderful care to all those who had the privilege to know her.
Kim was an integral part of the IHG family for over 25 years beginning her career at Crowne Plaza Terrigal on the front desk, moving into food and beverage and conference sales and then as Executive Assistant to the General Manager in 2001.
In 2006 Kim moved back to Sydney with her husband Alf and became Executive Assistant to the General Manager at InterContinental Sydney. During her seven eventful years at the hotel, Kim supported three General Managers, prior to joining the Sydney head office as the Executive Assistant to Bill and George and transitioning to supporting Karin in January 2015.
In all her roles, Kim was in many ways the quiet achiever who thrived on supporting others. Her unwavering loyalty to people around her was inspiring to us all. Naturally vivacious, she was armed with a healthy sense of humour to be able to tackle any unforeseen hotel dramas or stressed out executive......and over her 25 years she would no doubt have experienced many!
Kim brought colour and light, fun and laughter into work. We were all blessed to be welcomed by her beautiful smile and joyful spirit every morning.
Kim will be fondly remembered forever as an amazing lady who made our lives a little richer every day.
Our deepest sympathies and support are with Kim’s family.
Many years have gone by since we worked together however I would never forget our wonderful times....
Rest In Peace Beautiful Lady....
Until we meet again.....
Sending my Love to your Family & Friends.
"Today we were privileged to celebrate your beautiful life. I was only lucky enough to work and know you for a shorter time than most but I can't thank you for always showing endless amounts of care and support no matter what you had going on.
We will miss you everyday and hope you have started the party up in heaven.
"With wholehearted sadness, we extend our thoughts and condolences to Kim’s family, friends and our fellow IHG colleagues who are her extended family.
We share your sorrow and wish you all strength ahead through this extremely difficult time.
Kim was a beautiful and caring lady who will not be forgotten.
Colin McCandless and all at InterContinental Adelaide"
"Gorgeous Girl, from the moment we met at CPT, I felt blessed to have met you and then worked alongside you. You brought an abundance of positivity, humor and kindness to every situation and person that you met. It's never about what you do for people, or what you give them, it's all about how you make them feel. You, Ms K, are the essence of this. And now, at least we now know that the angels will be wearing hot pink and looking glamorous xx"
"Am incredibly warm and caring person who put others before herself. Selfless and always wanting to help others.. Her care and love will be greatly missed by all around her, none more so than her family.. I cant begin to comprehend how hard this is for them."
"Kim’s smile embraced everyone; her smile was like one huge HUG filled with love, understanding and sincerity.
Kim we are ALL smiling with you today and forever while you rest in peace.
"Thank you so much for having been such a wonderful support for me. I loved seeing your smile every morning, the cups of tea, the laughs about someone too big for their boots or too small minded to count. Time flew way too quickly......
You were so beautiful, inside and out. Bright, and full of love and light. And that's how I will always remember you.
My most loving thoughts to your family....
"Kim was always kind to assist me over the years with many requests, even though we had not met in person (until recently), whilst she was under pressure with I am sure a myriad of other requests, Kim was always supportive and came through, always someone you could count on.
Can’t express enough my deepest sympathies to her family & friends and those who closely worked with her; I was privileged to meet Kim recently; a remarkable lady with an amazing energy, taken so early in life.
Thanks for your care and support, they say life is like art; Kim created a masterpiece. RIP"
"Thank you for the memories you have left behind. A memory that comes to mind is when we had as part of Celebrate Service if you could be someone "in the life of..." and a colleague in the hotel wanted to know how you were able manage the demands of the GM and the Executive office and still always have a smile on your face.
The answer was simple; you were the happiest and most excited when you were sharing with us the amazing trips with your husband and news of the birth of your grandchildren - we know this must be a difficult time for them and offer our most sincere condolences. You will be greatly missed. From Mandy and David Crestani"
"In all of the years I knew you, from Terrigal to InterContinental Sydney to IHG Corporate Office you were always so joyful, so glamorous and so very very fun.
Even when you were under pressure (and by goodness supporting GM's you often were!), you had time for me and other colleagues and always helped us with such grace and good humour.
I know how incredibly proud you were of your gorgeous daughters and how much you loved being a grandma to your 3 little grandkids and your light will shine on in them.
Thank you for all of the memories, you will be missed by so many people Kimmy.
Sending my love and thoughts to your family and friends. Vale Kim XXXXXX"
"Kim, I will never forget how you were my first point of contact in IHG and I will always thank you for that.
You were a happy woman with a smile on your face and that is how I will remember you.
Thank you for all the memories and always your great attitude. RIP
"Thinking of your friends and family at this very difficult time. Know you'll be greatly missed by your IHG family.
Thanks for the smiles, your gentle nature and of course the glamour here at Bond Street. RIP Kim."
