Kimberly "Kim" was born March 26, 1958, in North Platte, Nebraska, to Dale Edwin and Willa Jean (Pease) Kirts. She grew up in North Platte and attended North Platte High School, graduating in 1976. She explored life's ventures and lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming, from 1977 through 1986 before returning to North Platte. She then attended Mid-Plains Community College and received an associate degree in Dental Assisting. Kim was a dental assistant with Dr. Charles J. Boettcher, DDS in North Platte for nearly 30 years.
Kimberly was a devoted daughter, mother, sister, and friend, who touched the hearts of all who knew her, and will always be remembered for her kindness, caring, compassion, and always putting others before herself. She was spot-on with her wit with a joke or observation, always daring to share her true opinion, would win you over with her big cheeky smile, and shared her acceptance of friendship with a boisterous laughter that will be a lasting memory for all that she came to know.
Kim is survived by her two sons, Matthew Dermer of Missoula, Montana, and Jeremy Dermer of North Platte, Nebraska; one granddaughter, Josephina of North Platte; siblings Pam Youngs of North Platte,NE, Jeff (Jennifer Bosche) Kirts of Colorado Springs, CO, Steven (Julie) Kirts of Ames, IA, and Patrick (Lana) Kirts of Papillion, NE; and nephews and nieces, Chelsey Spady, Jacob Kirts, Tanner Kirts, Hunter Kirts, Sarah Kirts, Kyle Kirts, Connor Kirts, Spencer Kirts, Haley Kirts, and Landon Kirts.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Dale and Willa Kirts; infant sisters, Angela, Teresa and Joanne; and husband, Gregory Dermer of Torrington, Wyoming.
Ames Monument & Cremation Center has been entrusted with the care of Kim and her family.
Steve and Julie, I was sorry to learn of the death of your sister. I will remember you in my thoughts and prayers.....Chris Harvey
Kimmy- I will never forget you and your sense of humor. That one staff meeting when you walked out and said "What? We scratch your back and the rest of us all walk around itching?!" Oh my gosh! I thought I would die laughing. You always said what was on your mind, no matter what it was or to who it was. God I will miss you Lady! Even though it's been a little bit since I saw you, you will always be my friend. Rest in Peace Sweetheart. I'll remember you always. You were one of the best and your passing left me in shock. Matt and Jeremy, I am so very sorry for your loss. I loved the time I spent working with your Mom. She was a wonderful lady and I'm going to miss her! May God give you strength at this difficult time. Cathy Hougan
My condolences to the entire family!
Aunt Kim was a remarkably strong woman! Her quick wit and sense of humor will always be cherished in my heart.
So many memories flood in when thinking of her...rollerskating, Alf diapers, getting my hair caught in her curling brush, losing the top of the camper...just to name a few. Every visit with Kim was an unforgettable experience. She will be deeply missed. Love, Chandra
