Kim Bankhead

Kim Bankhead, 50, of Ypsilanti, Michigan passed away unexpectedly at her home last week. Kim was the daughter of Judy Behnke MacInness and David Bankhead. Kim graduated from Charlotte High School and Michigan State University.
After college, Kim moved to Ann Arbor where she worked in the Mortgage Lending industry for over 25 years. She made many friends who became her “tribe” throughout her career.
