Kimberly R. Dernier-Swisher passed into the hands of the Lord on Wednesday, July 18th, 2018. Kim was born July 30th, 1971 in Toledo, Ohio. Kim was an adventurous soul, reminiscing of the thrills of riding roller coasters at Cedar Point and proud to share the tale that she had once skydived. Kim loved the outdoors. She enjoyed hiking the trails of the Sonoran Desert, kicking back and getting a tan at the pool, cook-outs with her family and friends, and cuddling with her furry companions: Keanu, D.O.G., Dude, and Bugatti (to name a few). Most of all, Kim loved spending time with her nieces and nephews. They were the light in her eyes and the children adored her with equal tenacity. Kim was proud and opinionated and could light up a room with her infectious laughter.
Kim is survived by her parents Paul Dernier and Jacqueline Hendry; siblings Michelle, Greg, Lindsay, Matt, and Brad; and her ex-husband and friend of nearly 30 years, Jay. Kim is re-joined with her and Jay’s son, their angel Jonathan, in Heaven.
A Celebration of Life for “Kimmy” will take place on Sunday, July 29, 2018 from 12pm – 4pm at the Nederhouser Community Hall at Olander Park in Sylvania, Ohio. In lieu of flowers or sentiments, the family is encouraging donations in her memory to the Toledo Area Humane Society. Sujkowski Funeral Home of Rossford is assisting the family with arrangements.
