Bobae Kim Fogg was born to Chan Sam and Okran Kim on February 25, 1962, in the city of Gwang-Ju, South Korea. She married David Fogg in the Stone Chapel at Camp Casey, Dong Du Chon in South Korea on May 9, 1987. From a young age, Bobae had a close relationship with the Lord and aspired to be a nun but was told that her purpose was to share her spirit of love and generosity with the world and thats exactly what she did. She loved to feed people and make people happyshe would not take no for an answer! Bobae excelled at one of her most difficult professions, an Army wife. Her love made our house a home at Ft. Campbell, KY, Ft. Ord, CA, Ft. Hood, TX, Ft. Drum, NY and Wetsbaden, Germany.

Bobae owned and operated The Coffee Clinic inside Medical Associates in Clinton where she made many friends. She loved baking, decorating cakes and making eggrolls for her friends. Her fan favorites were her chicken enchiladas and German style Jeager-Schnitzel. Bobae also enjoyed her garden and was proud of her tomatoes, which she made salsa out of. Bobae was a certified Dental Assistant and devoted volunteer on every school trip of her son and daughter. She enjoyed listening to classical music, rides in the convertible and motorcycle cruises to Galena, IL.

Bobae is survived by her husband David; her daughter Annie; brothers Kyu-Bong, Kyu-Wan and Kyu-Kwan; sisters Hae-Min and Bo In and many cousins, nieces and nephews in both South Korea and the U.S. She was preceded in death by her parents Chan Sam and Okran Kim; father and mother in law Sidney and Gertrude Fogg; her son Daniel and her cat Mitzy. Bobae was a light and effortless friend to so many and will be missed. Her family was the most important thing to her and she made that apparent in everything that she did.
