Kimberly D. (Pruett) Clem
Arensberg-Pruett Funeral Home in Atchison
Huron, KS

On November 16, 2023, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend, Kimberly D. (Pruett) Clem, went to her eternal rest.

Kim was born in Atchison, Kansas, on December 8, 1967, the oldest daughter of Jerry Pruett and Joyce (Robbins) Pruett. She attended schools in Effingham and graduated from ACCHS. She earned her A.A.S in accounting from Vo-Tech and used her degree to assist Patsy Porter, CPA for a few years before she joined the Hardware Store in Atchison, where she became a very familiar face. She most recently was working in the janitorial department at Bradken. She was always one to put others needs before her own and that attribute showed in everything she did.

Kim and James “Corky” Clem were married on May 12, 1989, at the Cummings Christian Church. They shared many great years together and created a family bond that will be remembered forever. Although you may have seen Kim out and about, it was because she simply always wanted to be around her family. If it was up to her, she could have just always been at home! The joy her grandchildren brought to her life was beyond what words can describe. Kim could be summed up by “anything family” made her happy, whether fishing, razr riding or spending time in the garage with Corky and kids while they worked on cars; as long as she was surrounded by her family, she was happy. Kim- faith was important to her and she was at peace in her life.

Her family will miss her forever, including her husband, Corky Clem; children, Amber Cox (Dallas), Joseph Clem (fiancé-Marisa), Jacob Clem (Rebecca), Jordan Clem (Amy), Joel Clem; her siblings, Jerry “Jay” Pruett, Jr., Ra’Chel Seever (Brian), Amanda Pruett, Noah Pruett, Bethany Pruett; her beloved fifteen grandchildren and her aunts, uncles, nieces, nephew and cousins.

Her life will be celebrated and remembered with a service on Wednesday, November 22, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at the Arensberg-Pruett Funeral Home with Rev. Jim Cormode as officiant. The family will receive friends on Tuesday evening, from 6-7:30 p.m. at the funeral home. Kim will be laid to rest at Mt. Vernon Cemetery. Memorials may be left to the American Heart Association.
