Kimberly Alcorn Castner, 56, of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, passed away at home on Wednesday, December 26, 2018 surrounded by loved ones after a long and courageous battle with ovarian cancer.  Born September 6, 1962 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kim was the beloved wife of John Castner.  Kim and John met in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania.  They were married on September 16, 1989.  Kim was the daughter of the late John Samuel Alcorn.  She leaves her cherished mother Nancy (Corcoran) Alcorn, her brother Jeffrey Stewart Alcorn, daughter Erin Castner  Alfano (Salvatore), grandsons Nicholas Alfano, Jacob Alfano and nephews Adam Alcorn, Samuel Alcorn, Nicholas Alcorn, Benjamin  Alcorn, and uncles James Corcoran (Mary) and Thomas Corcoran (Janice) as well as many relatives and friends.
Kim was a graduate of the University of Florida where she earned a degree in marketing.  She later earned a Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan. In 2015, she earned her Doctor of Clinical Psychology degree from Immaculata University, writing her doctoral dissertation on predictive testing and Huntington’s Disease.
The Apostle Paul once encouraged his followers “Live a life worthy of the calling you have received!”  For all who were blessed to have known Kim, knew that she lived this message, for her short life was one of service and compassion.  Her career saw her working with populations ranging from victims of rape and sexual assault, to children who were victims of abuse and their perpetrators.  She worked with those living with brain injuries and for many years worked in an in-patient setting working with underserved juvenile offenders at St. Gabriel’s Hall in Audubon, Pennsylvania.  There, Kim shaped the work and careers of countless young therapists and social workers whom she mentored and trained. Most recently, she was a clinical psychologist providing out-patient therapy and counseling with MG Therapeutic Services in Media, Pennsylvania.  Kim was so dedicated to being of service to her clients that she was still holding office hours until shortly before her passing.
Kim was happiest when she was spending time with her beloved husband.  Throughout their marriage, they traveled extensively, having visited Africa, Hawaii, and throughout Europe.  In October, Kim made one final trip to Switzerland and Monaco.  Her favorite place, though, was Cape May Point, New Jersey, where she spent her summers growing up.  
Services for Kim will be held on January 12, 2019 at 11:00 am at Washington Memorial Chapel, in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.  A luncheon will be held following the service.  Directions will be provided.
In lieu of flowers or monetary donations, the family requests that Kim’s family and friends spend time with someone they love in her honor.  Kim enjoyed spending time with the people who were important to her.  The gift of time is the greatest gift that one can give to those they love.
