Kimberly S. Sermersheim, 46, of Huntingburg, died peacefully surrounded by the love of family on Saturday, February 18, 2017. She was born August 5, 1970 to Lawrence E. and Rita M. (Wagner) Sermersheim.
Kim was a 1988 graduate of Southridge High School. She attended the University of Southern Indiana where she joined Delta Zeta Sorority. She transferred to Vincennes University and graduated with a degree in Accounting. Kim worked as a bookkeeper for Northside Machining Incorporated in Huntingburg.
Kim was an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Huntingburg where she was a member of the Ladies Sodality and also served as a Sacristan. She loved animals (especially her dog, Maddie), crafts, sewing, wood burning art, reading, and so much more; her talents were many. Kim adored being an aunt, and her niece and nephews adored her. She always enjoyed attending their piano concerts, and their school and sporting events whenever possible.
To Know Kim was to love Kim. She fought the good fight, endured and persevered with amazing strength, but in the end lost the battle to this horrible, nasty disease called cancer. Kim, always doing things for the benefit of others, left this world doing the same. As an organ donor – even though the cancer prevented the use of most of her organs – her corneas have given the gift of sight to two individuals who could not previously see. Kim lives on!
Kim is survived by her loving parents, Lawrence E. and Rita M. (Wagner) Sermersheim of Huntingburg; brothers, Kevin J. of Birdseye and Keith A. (wife Connie) of Evansville; sister, Katherine L. of West Lafayette; niece, Maria; nephews, Kyle (Devon), Luke (wife Jill), Benjamin, Jacob and Christopher; great niece and nephew, Reagan and Mason; maternal grandmother, Caroline Wagner; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
A funeral Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 a.m., E.S.T., on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Huntingburg with burial to follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery.
Friends may call for visitation at the Nass & Son Funeral Home in Huntingburg from 2:00-8:00 p.m., on Tuesday. A parish rosary and Ladies Sodality prayer vigil will be held at 4:00 p.m., Tuesday, at the funeral home.
