(nee Kanigan)

October 2, 1956 – January 22, 2013

It is with profound sadness

that we announce Kathy’s

passing after a lengthy

and courageous battle with

cancer. She passed

peacefully at home with

her family by her side.

She graduated from

Kelowna Secondary

School achieving high

academic standards.

She excelled as an athlete, where she developed

strong friendships with

her teammates who

have remained by her side throughout her life. Kathy

furthered her education, graduating with strong

competency in French, Russian, Spanish, and English.

She devoted many years as an inspiring teacher. Kathy

was positive, energetic, wise, and loving in all that she

did and practiced inclusivity with those around her.

She was as passionate with her plants as she was with

her ideologies of social justice. Her lasting friendships

with family and friends truly reflected the friend she was.

Kathy was predeceased by her father, Harry. Surviving is

her loving husband Mike of 31 years, her children Shayla and Rylan, loving mother Elizabeth, sister Lori (Hayden, Landyn), brother Fred and wife Josie (Denika, Hailey),

along with numerous family and friends.

A service was held on January 25 with a pending

announcement for a Celebration of Life. Al Grywacheski

of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™

has been entrusted with arrangements.

As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Food Bank of your choice would be appreciated.
