Kim shared only 43 years with us. She passed away on September 19, 2022 at Hospice of Dayton after nearly a year fighting the atrocious disease cancer.
Kim was born October 25, 1978 to her parents Anthony Myers and Bonnie (Marker) Myers. At a young age herself, Kim helped care for her younger brother Brian Myers after her mother’s untimely passing. She discovered her loving husband Monte Maish and the two wedded March 4, 2006. Her family blossomed in Eaton, Ohio with eldest daughter Kayla Maish, son Logun Maish, and youngest daughter Josie Maish.
Kim prioritized her roles as a mother and family manager. She led a playful life filled with family, crafts, and volunteering but would commence uncompromising determination if she felt the need to protect her loved ones. Kim was partial to antagonism and fond of letting her loved ones know that the obsessions they favored were always misguided. Witty and stubborn, she had a way with looks and was a constant source of amusement for her family.
A graduate of Eaton High School (1998), Kim studied at Sinclair Community College (Dayton, Ohio) and obtained a degree in Business Administration and Management in 2020 from Ivy Tech Community College (Richmond, Indiana). Over the years, she served colas at the Big Boy, drove an ambulance to those in crisis, and taxied her children to beauty pageants, rabbit competitions, and swimming pools. Kim enjoyed traveling with her family, crafting wreaths for all occasions, and going all out for Halloween. When not with her family she was found aiding county women at Birthright of Eaton.
Kim’s spirit enjoys the sandy beaches that were never too far from her mind and with those who passed before her: mother Bonnie (Marker) Myers, grandmother Mary Ellen (Harris) Marker, grandfather Lloyd Marker, grandfather Lowell Duane Myers, and sister-in-law Martell (Maish) Walls.
Kim will forever be held in the memories of her husband Monte Maish, daughters Kayla Maish and Josie Maish, son Logun Maish, father Anthony Myers, step-mother Valerie (Tuggle) Myers, grandmother Myrna (Landis) Myers, brother Brian Myers and his partner Tina (Krahl) Clarke, her howling cuddle buddies Max and Misty, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and a few adversaries.
As in life, Kim humbly requested privacy of her passing. Her ashes will be interred amongst her mother’s grave at Sugar Grove Cemetery (West Alexandria, Ohio). Friends and family are invited to a celebration of life, date and location to be determined, for the woman who enriched the lives of those who were fortunate enough to know her: Kimberly Michelle (Myers) Maish, rest in spiffy paradise
