She will be remembered by her brothers as the best sister a brother could ever ask for. All of her extended family was important to her. She was the Proverbs 31 woman, but her devotion to God and family did not stop there. Kimberly also answered God’s call to missions, spreading the love of Christ to others across the globe.

Kimberly is survived by her husband Ralph of the home in White Oak; son, Burton Lee Chafin, his wife Janet and their children Shelby, Jeremiah, and Briar of Perry, OK; mother and father, James A. and Judy A. Barger of Alluwe; brother, Jimmy Barger of Alluwe, his daughter, Jessica and her children, Bryzell and Brylenn; brother, Scott Barger, his wife Sherri and their children, Tate and Paige of Alluwe; honorary sisters, Debbie Melton of Stillwater, OK, Lisa Oliver of Bartlesville, OK and Pam Lawthorn;   a host of special cousins and extended family who were all a  part of her life.
