Kimberly Burkhart Roessler gained her angel wings on Thursday, July 26, 2018, at the young age of 61 years in Louisville, Ky. Kim passed peacefully in her home with her beloved dog, Bailey, by her side.

Kim was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky and touched the lives of many in the community with her spunk and wit. She graduated from Murray State with her undergraduate degree in early childhood and elementary education. She went on to get her master’s degree in further education from University of Louisville and her special education degree from Bellarmine University. She was a special education teacher in the JCPS school district for many years and touched the lives of hundreds of at-risk children. She taught them how to maximize their educational, emotional and confidence potential before taking early retirement due to her progressive diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis.

Kim was married to former spouse Mike Roessler, whom they had a daughter together, Allison (Roessler) Pitman. Allison was the light of Kim’s life along with her furry four-legged companion, Bailey, whom never left her side.

The visitation will begin at 10 a.m. with the funeral service to directly follow at 1:00 p.m. at the Evergreen Funeral Home, 4623 Preston Hwy.
