Kathleen made a point of keeping in contact with her colleagues and was well known for bringing in baking.

She was a talented knitter, making the best thrummed mitts. Kathleen enjoyed searching thrift stores for that hidden treasure.  Family gatherings will not be the same without her famous ham balls and broken glass dessert. 

As she was in and out of the hospital due to complications, she saw firsthand how hard medical staff worked and was very appreciative of all the care she received.

Kathleen will be missed,  and her memory cherished by her brothers Tim, and Ken(Cheri) Sisters Sharon (Ed) and Linda (Kerry) She will also be missed by nieces, Lindsey, Jenna, Breanne and Dawn. Nephews, Tyler, Cale Jeremy and Stephan. She will be missed by her dear friends Gae and Karen.

    I was very sad to read of Kathleen’s passing. I spent many lunch hours sitting on Broadway in the nice weather, sharing some good laughs with her. My family also share fond memories of Kathleen arriving on our doorstep with beautiful desserts she had created and once with beautiful matching sweaters she had made for everyone. She always will hold a special place in my heart and she was a true lady.

    Kathleen was an amazing woman, she certainly was a role model for many of us. I also remember her “broken glass dessert” it was her specialty for our lunches and times of fellowship. Kathleen was our Vestry secretary for some years and was always active in the Church. I will always remember her walking the hills in Neepawa after her surgery, she was committed to continuing and maintaining her weight loss.
    Kathleen was a kind and gentle person, who was generous and caring, she will be missed by many.
    It certainly was a privilege to know her.
