Kim was born on February 9, 1973, in Dubuque, Iowa, daughter of Donald “Don” Marcov Sr. and Ruth Ann Brokus.

Kim attended school at Central High School and went on to graduate from college with a degree in Human Resources. She would meet the love of her life, Jimmie James Carner Jr. in 1989, and they would later marry in Dubuque in 1996. Kim was employed at Pickel Barrell Subs and with the retail shop at the St. Vincent de Paul Society. She also owned her own business, Kim’s Closet, on 19th and Washington, for a few years. In her free time, Kim loved to spend time with her family, especially the grandchildren. She enjoyed shopping, keeping up with friends on Facebook, and everyone knew how much she loved her Mean Bean coffee drinks. Kim regularly rode along in the semi with Jimmie, and liked going fishing, camping and taking vacations. She also had a special place in her heart for her cats. Kim was a wonderful wife, mom, grandma, sister and friend. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
