Ashland County has lost a life-long resident and dedicated public servant.

Commissioner Kim Edwards passed away Tuesday morning at her home after a three to four-year battle with colon cancer that spread to her lungs. She was 55 years old.

Edwards served as a county commissioner for more than seven years, and one of her colleagues, Commissioner Barb Queer, will remember her as a friend since high school who was passionate about public service and working to solve problems for her constituents. 

Edwards' other fellow commissioner, Mike Welch, says she arrived in office, hit the ground running, and worked tirelessly for Ashland County government and residents.

Kim Edwards previously served as mayor of Hayesville for six years.

She is survived by her husband Tom and five grown children.

Calling hours are Friday from 1-3 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. at Denbow-Primm-Kemery Funeral Home. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. at St. Edwards Catholic Church, with burial at Vermillion Cemetary.


The Ashland County Republican Central Committee is taking applications to complete the last year of Edwards' term.
