Kym Raa Kane

Nov. 24, 1924 — March 25, 2011

Kym Raa Kane moved to Sedona in 1973. She traded her life in Los Angeles for a rustic house on Jordan Road.

A pioneer of self-awareness, her words resonated with those standing on the threshold of a world in transition.

She departed from this life as she entered, owning only herself, leaving an indelible imprint on all drawn into the wealth of her knowledge gathered over a lifetime of bold, passionate, abundant, unapologetic living.

Love and farewell Kym; you got our attention and then some.

    I've known Kym since1975-76?... I was going to school in Scottsdale, AZ. A boyfriend apparently, met her on a flight from Phoenix to LA.. She gave him her number... and we came to Sedona to visit. We checked into a little "Cabin" motel. (Old days!!)... and ventured into the wonderful, beautiful, tranquil, fascinating, funny, dog loving, gourmet loving, Pot loving, giving... Kym. I've called her for years.. and she knew I was from St. Louis.. She'd answer:Hi, My StL, baby!before cell phones. I saw her year after year until I couldn't reach her on her ALWAYS #. I tried to find her everywhere in Sedona. I couldn't even get the Chamber of C. to help. I'd love to know what happened to my Kym. PLEASE: Geri Fox: know, she knows, I know! Love to her beautiful soul...G

    I am the boyfriend mentioned above. It was more than a meeting , it was a magnetic attraction. We were seated on the plane , 10 or 12 rows apart... i was drawn to Kym as thought she was a powerful electro-magnet.. literally my head spun as she gestured the signal.. " come and talk to me".. fast forward to several awesome enlightening meeting in Sedona. Her spiritual being i cant describe... The next thing you know , we are in Acapulco Mexico in a mansion on a hill with a healer ... My baby sister Nancy ( 24 at the time ) .. tons of laughter.. tons of fun , tons of mystery... such a wonderful memory.. KIm.. see you on the other side... and thank you.. Bob Gray..
