MASURY, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Kim Marie (Boyer) Swope, 61, of Masury, Ohio, passed away the morning of Wednesday, February 1, 2023.

Born June 9, 1961, in Sharon, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of William “Bill” and Juanita Boyer.

Kim graduated from Sharon High School, class of 1979.

She worked briefly at Baskin Robins, Rite Aid, Hermitage Sub Shop, WinTronics and Orange Village Care Center.

Kim will always be remembered by her family and friends for her kind demeanor, her love of movies and music and her desire to spend time with loved ones. Her favorite movies were When Harry met Sally, The Notebook and The Starling, followed closely with A Christmas Story. No Christmas holiday passed without her watching A Christmas Story on repeat. Her “love language” was sharing YouTube videos of music that moved her and funny things that brought a smile and laugh to her face. She cared deeply about her children and spent her time supporting their accomplishments and visiting with them.

Surviving are her mother, Juanita Boyer, in Mercer, Pennsylvania and her three children, Alivia Lapcevich in Akron, Ohio, Haley (Ryan) Marshburn in Fowler, Ohio and David Swope, Jr. in Masury, Ohio.

(William) Kurtz in Cortland, Ohio and Kevin D. Boyer in New Castle, Pennsylvania, along with her many nieces and nephews.
