Who is Glen Campbell’s wife Kimberly Woolen?
Born under the sign of Aries on the 3rd of April 1959, in Indianapolis, Indiana USA, Kimberly Woolen is a 59-year-old Caucasian dancer, but definitely best known to the world for being the fourth wife of the late country music legend Glen Campbell. She has had some personal successes over the course of her sometimes lucrative dancing career from the late 1970s.
Kimberly was apparently an only child, raised in her birthplace by parents of unknown identities and professions. Also, it is unknown when exactly she took an interest in what she does today, as well as any of her childhood hobbies, as are the high school she attended, but she matriculated in 1977, but she did attend a college, since it is known that she was part of a dancing fraternity. After proving herself to the local audience, she was eventually featured in two Radio City Music Hall shows, as well as in the Jones Beach production entitled “The Music Man.” It is unknown if she ever graduated and with what degree.
The EncounterGlen Campbell was 46 years old and had three failed marriages in his wake, when his banjo player named Carl Jackson fixed him up with a blind date. Even though Glen was enjoying mass popularity at the time when he met the 24-year-old Kim, she actually had no idea who he was, and didn’t know any of his songs. As a result, she wasn’t blinded by the flair of his presence, and he found that quite refreshing. As specified in an interview with “People” magazine, Glen first took Kim along with his parents to the prestigious 5-star New York City Waldorf-Astoria hotel for dinner, while the two later went alone to a James Taylor concert. When interviewed about the first date, Kim said: ‘I didn’t take it seriously, I thought it was just a date. But as soon as I met him, I knew there was something special about him.’ When Glen was interviewed, he stated: ‘I liked her immediately. It was one of those things where you meet somebody and you just can’t get them out of your mind. So I called and said, ‘Let’s go out.’’
A Tumultuous Love LifePrior to meeting Kimberly, Glen had already been married and divorced three times. When he was 17 years of age in 1955, he married Diane Kirk who was then 15 and pregnant with his child. Unfortunately, their first baby died during infancy, but they later had a daughter named Debbie Campbell; they divorced four years later. In the same year, Glen married the beautician Billie Jean Nunley, who later gave birth to three children, named Kelli, Travis and Kane Campbell. In 1969, the family started appearing on Glen’s own show entitled “The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour”, which ran to 1972. However, as Glen told the “People” magazine, he decided to eventually divorce Billie Jean, specifically in 1975, due to her overly expensive lifestyle and absence as a mother to her children. A year later he married Sarah Berg, with whom had another son with, named Dillon Ian Campbell, but they divorced four years into the marriage; it was Berg’s decision, claiming that Glen was ‘running around with other women’ and that she wouldn’t stand for it. After his divorce, it was public knowledge that Glen was dating Tanya Tucker, specifically stating ‘I’m dating one of the finest female talents that God lets draw breath.’ However, after a year the relationship apparently became toxic, and Glen finally decided to break it off, after meeting Kimberly.
After a year of dating, Glen and Kim would marry in October 1981, at the North Phoenix Baptist Church in Arizona, where numerous celebrities and other noted individuals were present. In 1983, Kim gave birth to Cal Campbell, while Shannon Campbell came as their second child in 1985. Lastly, Ashley Campbell is their youngest child, born in 1986. All three of the said children later became musicians, and part of their father’s tour. Kimberly remained married to Glen for nearly 36 years, until his unfortunate passing on the 8th of August 2017.
Glen was at some point diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, to which he ultimately succumbed. Over the course of the worsening of his memory, Kimberly would constantly blog about the family’s struggle with his disease, while his children also showed great support. Shannon Campbell went as far as to record his own version of his father’s last song entitled “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”, which came out in 2013. Cal Campbell wrote a letter to his father upon realizing the diagnosis, stating ‘It’s easy to remember and rationalize that the lack of giving isn’t out of anger and spite, but that he’s just gone. Alzheimer’s has robbed both him and me of these little moments that make life so wonderful. It’s easy to remember this, but very hard to accept.’ Additionally, Ashley Campbell was quoted in Fox News, stating ‘Now when I play banjo with my dad, it’s getting harder for him to follow along, and it’s getting harder for him to recall my name. It’s hard to come to realization that someday my dad might look at me and I will be absolutely nothing to him.’ Upon Glen’s passing, Ashley tweeted a picture where she’s holding his hand, stating ‘Heartbroken. I owe him everything I am, and everything I will ever be. He will be remembered so well and with so much love.’

Social Media Presence

However, Kimberly doesn’t seem to care much for this celebrity trend, as apparently she doesn’t have Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts, at least not accessible to the public.
