BAY CITY, MI An Essexville woman who suffered fatal injuries while attempting to help another woman wounded in a crash on U.S. 10 is being remembered for her selflessness and generosity to others.

Likewise, the Unionville woman she was trying help, who also died of her injuries, is being remembered for her loving and free-spirited nature.

Kimberly P. Abela, 50, died of injuries she sustained while trying to help Lisa E. Archibald, 52, on Sept. 2. About 4:35 p.m. that day, Archibald was driving a Chevrolet Equinox east on U.S. 10 through Williams Township when an altercation ensued between her and her passenger daughter, Ashley N. Katshor, police have said. Archibald ended up stopping the Equinox, exiting it, and walking along the highway. Katshor then struck her mom with the vehicle, police have said.

Abela was also driving on U.S. 10 and stopped her vehicle to get out and help Archibald. While doing so, both she and Archibald were struck by a Chevrolet Impala driven by a 43-year-old Bay City man.

Responding personnel pronounced Archibald deceased at the scene. Abela was taken to an area hospital, where she died shortly thereafter, troopers report.

Abela was born in Oak Park, Illinois, and earned a masters degree from Northwood University, her obituary states.

Kim was known for her kind nature and devoted ways, her obituary reads. She loved helping others, life coaching, boating, fishing, bike riding, gardening, playing cards, playing games, and absolutely loved animals. Above all, Kim loved her children and her husband, Anthony, and all of her family and friends with all her heart.

Abela worked as the director of marketing and business development for SYM Financial Advisors in Midland. She enjoyed her work volunteering her time with the homeless and the poor. Always concerned for others, Kim helped others improve their life and job skills out of the goodness of her heart. Her selfless ways, generous heart, warm personality, and love for all those she encountered will live on for generations to come.

Archibald, affectionately nicknamed Auntie, was known for being genuine, her obituary states. She loved just as hard as she worked. She would live life for the thrill, always basking in the moment she was in. Her fun, loving, and free-spirited personality meant a prank wasnt far behind.

Archibald had passions for cooking, camping, and helping others.

Her want to help her family never went unnoticed, her obituary continues. She always said her happiness was the children in her life. She always had her door open for them and anyone else that was in need. Her personality was a diamond in the rough, and she will forever be in our hearts. Family meant the world to Lisa; memories made with her will be cherished forever.

Katshor, 34, has been charged with two counts of manslaughter, a 15-year felony, stemming from her moms and Abelas deaths.

As of Sept. 8, Katshor remains in the Bay County Jail on a $150,000 cash-surety bond. She is due in court for a preliminary examination on Sept. 24.
