There will be no public visitation or services. The family will hold a private celebration of Kim’s life. Cremation care will be conducted through Geib’s Tuscarawas Valley Crematory and the Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home at New Philadelphia.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Kim’s mother, Sarah who was with her from day one in her battle, her caregivers, Lorie Phillabaum, and Emmert Gochenour, and the team at Community Hospice for their excellent attention, compassion, and support throughout her illness.
