Kym J. Couch

It is with great sadness that I share the news that my beautiful, loving wife, Kym J. Couch, 60, passed away January 26, 2022, after a short battle with ALS. Kym was born on December 22, 1961, in Salem, Ohio, the youngest child of Charles (Bud) and Betty Lundy. Kym lived her younger years in East Palestine, Ohio eventually moving to the Dayton/Springfield area attending Springfield North High School. Kym met me, her husband Kevin Couch, in Springfield, where we both knew that they were meant to be together and married in 1987. We moved to Rockford, Illinois in 1990, where Kym found her professional calling in the insurance industry. She worked for Western-Southern in Illinois and Ohio. When we moved back to Ohio in 1998, Kym worked at several agencies before going back to the Grimone/Leadbetter agency until the ALS forced her to retire in August 2021. Kym enjoyed exercising, her Pittsburgh Steelers, Ohio State football, lounging by the pool, dogs of any kind and of course her famous "GIRL'S WEEKENDS" with her many friends and family. Kym and I loved to explore new and different places, for shopping (#1 favorite activity), dining or just hanging out. Kym has been my rock, my ride or die, my best friend and my true inspiration for all the years we have been together. She was willing to try some of the crazy ideas I would come up with, and always pushed me to try new and different things, whether it be food or fashion. Kym never took for granted the many blessings we enjoyed and always relied on her faith to get through the hard times and thanked Jesus every day for allowing us to live each day to its fullest. Kym's infectious joy for life will be missed by all she touched. Kym is survived by me, Kevin, her husband of 34 years, brother Jim (wife Debbie) Lundy, sister Pennie (husband Pete) Poly, and a very large number of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nephew that she loved dearly and was so proud of each one. She loved watching them all grow and prosper. Kym was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Candy Baker and her spouse, Rick Baker. The family would like to give special thanks to OSU Martha Morehouse medical facility, The ALS Association, Ohio's Hospice, The Gleason Foundation. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a no-kill animal shelter of your choice, the ALS Association, Ohio's Hospice or the Gleason Foundation. You may visit with her family and friends from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday in CONROY FUNERAL HOME. A short service will follow. Burial will be in the spring in Pennsylvania and a memorial will be planned for this summer.
