I am saddened to announce the passing of Journeyman Make-up Artist Kim Addrisi (Kramer), who died the morning of May 1st from stomach cancer. This is not only a loss to our local and her family and friends, but to my wife and me, for she had been a part of our family, since we first met her over 42 years ago, when she was only seventeen years old. A couple years later, she married one of my closest friends, Don Addrisi and they soon became Godparents to our son Casey. Their daughter Amity, who was born around the same time as Casey, is like our daughter and a sister to both our kids. Amity to this day considers our house as "home".
Kim became a member of Local 706 as an Associate in 1984, was elevated to the Roster as a Trainee in 1991, and passed her Journeyman test the same year. Her career started in network TV at NBC, working on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson", "Days of Our Lives" and "Santa Barbara"; from there she progressed into quite a large array of TV series, which included, "American Gladiators", "Moesha", "Delta", "The Hughleys", "Without a Trace", and "Nashville". In her busy work schedule she also found time to go to culinary school and became quite a gifted designer of wedding and specialty party cakes. She was an artisan of many talents.
Our condolences to her family and friends. She will be missed by so many. She is survived by her husband, Eric; mother, Joana; brother, Mark; sister, Tamara; and three daughters, Amity, Leianesse, Sedona, along with other relatives and friends in other states. No services are planned at this time. May our Kim rest in peace.
