Memorial Fund

… for Ethan

We would like to honor the memory of past club member and show chair, Kim Murnyack, at the 2024 IEW. She has served the ISSDC in numerous ways over the years from developing show structure and planning events to ordering ribbons and awards. Kim and High Caliber Shilohs were also strong competitors in numerous shows achieving many accolades and Annual Awards.

The light of Kim’s life in the past decade has been her young son, Ethan. If you would like to join us in honoring and celebrating our dear friend, please consider a donation to Ethan’s UTMA  fund. ~3/2024

The very sudden and tragic loss of one of our own …. 

Kim Murnyack was a very giving person, and you could always count on her to help with whatever she could.  She was especially fond of dogs and was a long and dedicated breeder of Shiloh Shepherds. Moose was Kim’s first Shiloh followed quickly by her foundation girls, Terra and Kiana. In 2010 High Caliber Shilohs was founded with the arrival of her first litter.

Kim was a long-term and dedicated member of the ISSDC, first joining the club in 2009 (14 yrs). She was very active in showing her Shilohs, earning multiple annual awards. Kim and High Caliber Shilohs brought home their first National Select in 2009. Between 2009 and 2018 they were awarded multiple Puppies of the Year, National Selects and even Grand Victor. A dedicated club member and passionate about showing, Kim served on the Show Committee and tirelessly managed the Club WinSheet tallies for annual awards and championships for the last 12 years. 

Many have asked how they can help Kim’s family during this time. We would like to offer the ability for those who are able, to make a contribution to a college fund for Kim’s 10-year-old son, Ethan. She did so much for us over the years, please consider making a donation in honor of Kim. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for any tribute made in her memory.
