December 15, 1954 – May 21, 2021
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Kate Pipko at the age of 66 years after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Kate was predeceased by her parents, William and Kathleen, and her brother Billy. She leaves to cherish her memory her husband Ken; daughters Katie (Don) and Jody (Zane); grandsons Ryan (Bryanna) and Cameron; sisters Dorothy and Betty and many other family members.
Kate was born in Souris, Manitoba, grew up in Winnipeg and eventually settled down with her family in East Selkirk. She worked with the Selkirk RCMP detachment through the City of Selkirk for over 25 years. She enjoyed her work with the RCMP and had the utmost respect and admiration for them.
As a family, we enjoyed many summer vacations at a cabin or travelling throughout the United States. Kate loved her Casino and winter destination trips with her girlfriends and always had fun stories to share after. Later on in life, she even let Ken join her on her new adventures. Of all her travels, her favourite destination was relaxing in front of a fire at her cabin on Birch River with her dog Jackson.
Kate has been a generous, devoted, strong and caring Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Friend and will be missed deeply by many.
We would like to thank all the staff at CancerCare Manitoba, with a special thank you to Oncology Nurse McKenzie Jackson who was patient and thoughtful throughout Mom’s journey.
Due to Covid restrictions, a private family service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, Kate would prefer donations to be made to the Autism Society of Manitoba,
825 Sherbrook St. Winnipeg, MB R3A 1M5.
