I met Kathryn when she and Jim came into the store I work at to get some clothing.
I always loved seeing her smiling face and the mischievous glow in her eyes.
I have not known her long , but she left quite an impression on me with tales of her design and alteration business. I’m a fellow sewing machine junkie.
I’m so sorry for your loss Jim and family. I know you treated her with such compassion and love in her final times.
She will be greatly missed.

First I’d like to say RIP Auntie Kay!
One of my fondest memories of Auntie Kay is with her and Auntie Norma, the family was at a restaurant (I think the Bowmanville restaurant) and when leaving my Aunts and I were joking around and all of a sudden they broke out in a dance and started singing We are a little bit crazy. I guess it was an old camp song they use to sing. I love you both. RIP.

Dear Sandee And family, we were sadden by the passing of Kay, I myself had only gotten to meet her once, but it was so nice that she looked Terry up when she was in Temagami and came to visit us. A memory to cherish. Love to everyone.

Dear Jim and family,

We are so very sorry to hear of the passing of your
wife, Kathryn. She was such a kind and cheery person. We often talked when I was walking our dog, Gibson. Sammy and Gibson would play while she and I would share a story, have a laugh, and sometimes even a little cry. She really was a special person in our neighbourhood, our community. We will remember Kathryn as a generous and humble person who made the world a nicer place to be in.

Sincerely, your neighbours, Dr Bill, Melissa, Noah, Olivia and Gibson (The Mingrams)
