OBITUARY

Kimberly Leesa Coutu

December 19, 1966October 14, 2020

It is with the heaviest of hearts and sadness we announce the sudden passing of Kimberly Leesa Coutu on October 14 from a stroke at the age of 53.

She is lovingly remembered by her parents Jean-Paul and Cordelia, her siblings Keanyn, Kendra, Kyle and Kedron, by her children Danielle, Connor and Liam, by her granddaughters Charlie and Aubrey, and by so many others who loved her and held special places for her in their heart.

Kim was easy to love. She lived for her kids and grandkids. She lit up a room with her laugh and spirit. She was a hard worker and was determined. She was beautiful. She was kind. She was loved. She will be missed.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to Covid-19 restrictions Kim's service is private and by invitation only. The public will be able to view the live stream.

For those unable to attend, the livestream for the funeral at 3:00 pm can be accessed through the church's website.

My deepest condolences to Kim’s Family and Friends. Just know she was so proud of each and everyone of you! There is so much to say about Kim she was the most amazing beautiful strongest woman I knew! I meet Kim at work we hit it off right away she was my maid of honor at my wedding, we did a spare of the moment Vegas trip! And had a blast! Got to enjoy going camping with her! I use to say to Kim I want to be just like you so confident and full of life! People use to think we were sisters and I sure loved her like one. She was always there good and bad times didn't even have to ask she would just show up ! Her laugh was so contagious we would laugh and Laugh I would say I don’t even know why I’m laughing but I knew it was because of her laugh. Kim loved Halloween because she was able to do her favourite thing dress up she use to say stop being a chicken and dress up! well let’s just say she got me to dress up one year she even picked out my costume to match hers of course haha this year I have decorated my house for You Kim in your memory!

I knew Kim in Fort McMurray (waaayyy back!) through people that were close to both of us. She and I weren't close but I knew/know what a firecracker she was! 😁 She was a bright light that was snuffed out too soon. So young to leave this world!! It's always sad when a life is cut short and even worse when someone seems to be starting a new (happy) chapter. Life isn't fair, in that way, and I feel the sadness of (mutual) friends and Kim's loved ones. When you knew someone 'back-in-the-day' and they're gone TOO SOON, it's a shocker! 🥺

Watching the 'streaming' service left me with a quiet calmness...followed by sadness. I know that Kim is now at rest and the long road of grieving starts for those left behind. The memorial was lovely and the words spoken reached across the technology involved. The photos shown were fitting tributes and made me smile. I felt the the joy of Kim's life and her love of family and friends. I was/am reminded that life should be LIVED LARGE and we should just enjoy every day!! 👍🌐🙌

Heartfelt condolences to family and friends. 💛

A special human, indeed. I would kid her about those perfect hands and fingers. I hate speaking in the past tense. Her life at times was not an easy one. I am privileged to have known her. To all those who supported her on her life journey, I thank you. I will miss you, Kim.

Kim and I shared a few great years at work at Old Strathcona. We had many a good chat, and laughs too, discussing our trials and tribulations with work and with life. I am really sad to be writing here today.
I send my heartfelt condolences to Kim’s family and many friends. Find peace and comfort in each other. Know that Kim touched many lives with that smile and infectious laugh.

My connection to my love has been long. We first met 25 years ago. Kim and I were in and out of touch until may of 2019. Upon meeting again at that same time we fell hopelessly in love. I remember our first kiss which was so gentle and passionate. I can not express my deepest sadness enough for the loss of a daughter, mother, sister and grandmother and my sweetest Queen .
I will always love you my Queen.
