January 28, 1956 – June 3, 2018

With much sorrow … we share the loss of our beloved sister and friend, Kathy. She passed at home, suddenly and peacefully. She was a Social Butterfly to the end and will be missed by her precious extended family at Barlynn House and by all of her immediate family, sisters, brothers, cousins. Every one of us were her “favourites”. Kathy was predeceased by her parents, Jack & Janice and will always be remembered by her siblings Jean, Michael, Ray, Shelley, their families and many friends. Kathy has achieved her well earned and deserved reward of dancing and singing freely with angels and she will be forever loved, remembered and missed. Donations, if so wished, may be made, in Kathy’s name, to North Shore ConneXions Society, 1070 Roosevelt Crescent, North Vancouver V7P 1M4 or info@nsconnexions.org

" I'd like to say, on behalf of Kathy's family, that North Shore ConneXions was simply wonderful over the 44 years she spent with them. They are an awesome, caring organization with a large group of caring staff members. It's very difficult for families with challenged children and adults. Kathy was very fortunate to become a part of their group in 1974. Everyone associated with NS ConneXtions gave Kathy an extremely fulfilling life that enabled her to care for herself in many ways so that she could excel and become an important part of her wide community. I hope that Kathy is remembered with a small donation to this organization or another of your choice. Kathy's Cremation is being lovingly tended to by Kearney's Columbia - Bowell Chapel in New Westminster BC, www.kearneyfs.com "

Kathy's ashes will fly with the wind over the Pacific Ocean, so she can join her Mom.

Rest in Peace Sweetheart. Until we meet again.

Our family has some really fond memories of Kathy. Briefly, she loved everyone and had so much fun with the family. I will be going through photo's soon and will share them with your family when I can. Our heart goes out to the family and friends of Kathy. She will be missed!
