FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) –The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is remembering one of its former members who passed away after battling cancer.

Kimberly Alls, known as Kim, passed away on Sept. 19 and was a member of the 911 Communications Center for 10 years. The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says she was devoted to her job and was not afraid of hard work.

The office said in a statement on Facebook, “If you looked up the word “reliable” in a Sheriff’s Office handbook, there would be a picture of Kim.”

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office shared that Alls’ presence as a Dispatch Supervisor was calming during chaotic situations. Throughout the office, her passion and drive transferred to those around her.

Deputies said Alls was always up for a good laugh and was humble. She helped train those new to the team and was a wealth of knowledge.

She strived to ensure every first responder made it home safely and citizens were taken care of in the best possible way. As a friend, at the end of each shift, it was common to hear her stress, “Be careful on the way home,” or “Be safe,” said the Facebook post.

Alls was a wife and the mom to Lauren and Haleigh. The office said she was proud of their accomplishments and milestones and the majority of her stories were centered around them.

Kim was cut from the very best cloth. She will truly be missed by her family and friends. Rest easy Kim, we will take it from here,”
