Kimberly Asher Obituary

Kimberly Kay Asher

Kimberly Kay Asher, 60, of Barnard, Missouri, entered the gates of heaven on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, surrounded by her family at Mosaic Life Care in St. Joseph, Missouri, after a long and brave battle with cancer.

Kimberly was born on September 25, 1962, in Mount Ayr, Iowa, to C.M. And Virginia (Smith) Asher. She grew up in Sheridan, Missouri, and graduated from Worth County R-3 in Grant City, Missouri, in 1981. After high school, she entered the workforce and worked different jobs. In 1998, Kimberly started working for Energizer Battery Company in Maryville, Missouri, until the plant closed in 2013. She went on to work at Northwest Missouri State University in facility maintenance until her health declined and she could no longer work.

On April 30, 1983, she married Randy Mercer in Sheridan. To this union,  two children were born, though the couple later divorced.

Kim was strong in her faith, and she attended the Sheridan Christian Church for years until she moved to Barnard. There Kimberly became a member of the Barnard Christian Church. She loved spending time with her friends and family-especially her grandsons. She attended many of their activities until her health made it impossible to do so.

She will be missed by her children Lindsey (Chris) Smith and Ryan Mercer, grandsons Chandler & Langston Smith, all  of Bolckow, Missouri; sisters Karla (Kyle) Nelson of Stewartsville, Missouri, and Toni (Dave) Thomas of Sheridan; brothers Kevin Asher of Sheridan, Troy Asher of Maryville, and Bob (Pat) Smith of Bedford, Iowa; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Kim was preceded in death by her parents, and her brother, Kelly Asher.

The family will receive friends from 6:00-8:00 pm on Friday, July 28, 2023, at Prugh-Dunfee Funeral Home in Grant City, Missouri. The funeral service will be held Saturday, July 29, 2023 at 10 am at Prugh-Dunfee. Burial will follow at Barnes Cemetery in Worth, Missouri.
