Kim grew up in Berthoud in the family home her father and grandfather built. She attended school in Berthoud, graduating in 1991. She was active in all sports, but truly loved volleyball and was a standout player. Kim attended the University of Colorado (Boulder), graduating with a degree in sociology and criminal justice.

She was such a beautiful, spirited and very intelligent young lady who had many friends. Her contagious smile and sense of humor will never be forgotten. She had a love of all music, but especially blue grass, and enjoyed all the blue grass festivals with her dad.

Kim married the love of her life, Wade Bashor, on March 25, 1995, in Lyons, Colo., and they would have been married for 21 years in March of this year. They lived on the Bashor farm outside of Hygiene, along with her beloved puppies. She loved to travel, especially to Hawaii, where they spent their honeymoon.

Kim was employed with Boulder County Social Services for many years. In August 2015 she earned her master’s degree through the University of Chicago, School of Professional Psychology in Forensic Psychology. She recently began her new career as the Deputy Court Administrator with the City of Boulder.

Kim will carry with her the love of her husband and family. She will be sorely missed at all large family events and gatherings with her friends but will forever be present in spirit.
