Kimberly Ann Bernhardt, age 55, of Corry, passed away following a lengthy illness on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 at UPMC Hamot, with her loving husband by her side. Born February 5, 1968, in Great Falls, MT, she was the daughter of the late Richard Carl and Phyllis Catherine (Macey) Kobusinski.

Kimberly’s great love was her family. She was dedicated to her husband and children, and dearly loved her grandchildren. She was the center of their lives, as they were of hers. Kimberly will always be remembered for her kindness; she always gave before she received, and she thought of everyone else before herself. Even throughout her illness, she never complained and instead continued to pour herself into those she loved.

She was a very dedicated, hard worker, always giving extra effort and going the extra mile at her job. She worked for 24 years at Plastek in Erie, where she worked with her husband and brother, and for 8 years at Plastikos in Erie.

Kimberly is survived by her husband, David John Bernhardt; her three children – James Montalvo and his wife Marci of Corry, Justin Kobusinski of Erie, and Sarah Jaskiewicz and her husband Daniel of Erie; her 6 beloved grandchildren – Isabella, Maci, Mollie, Jayvon, Julius, and Jamari; a sister, Jodie Balkovic and her husband Eric, and two brothers, Richard Kobusinski and his wife Lisa, and Frank Kobusinski.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her niece, Samantha.

Private services will be held for family with burial following at McLane Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the National Scleroderma Foundation at
