November 18, 1969January 15, 2021

“SHE WAS STRONG AND BRAVE AND BROKEN ALL AT ONCE” Kim Fitzpatrick November 18, 1969 – January 15, 2021 It is with unbearable heartache and never ending sadness that we announce the passing of “our” Kim. She was an amazing daughter, sister, mother, aunt and wonderful friend to so many who knew her. Her family was the most important part of her life, she enjoyed being with her large extended family of aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and dear friends. The many family BBQ’s and get togethers, pool parties and visits always made her super HAPPY. She leaves behind her mom Eileen Storzuk, her brother Kevin Storzuk, wife Kim and nephew Kolton; son Keaton Fitzpatrick and fiancé Jaymie; daughter Megan and husband Richie Medrano and Grandpa Gordon Fitzpatrick. She is predeceased by her Dad Mervin Storzuk, nephew Karson Storzuk as well as many much loved Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents. Kim was employed as a legal service coordinator at BCLC Kamloops BC for the past five years. Her animals gave her so much love and enjoyment – she had horses for many years and she rode in the cattle drive with her dad – she was her dad’s girl and they had a great time together. Her dogs Bear, Ace and Kuma. Kuma was a rescue dog who found a wonderful forever home on lots of property to run and enjoy life. Her wish in life was to have her home and her animals at the end of a long day. Kim had a big generous heart and was kind and loving, always thinking of others and often picking up something that she thought someone else would like. A family service will be held when it is safe, possibly in the spring or summer due to the covid virus. Remembrance donations would be appreciated to the SPCA or BC Cancer agency in lieu of flowers. We lost our Matilda – our ray of sunshine and our lives will be forever changed…

Many thoughts and prayers to the entire family. I am so sorry for your loss and shocked at her sudden passing.

Kim and I had recently been in contact and were able to "catch up" after too many years. In our younger years, we spent a lot of time together through grade school, junior/senior high but lost contact after graduation.

Many wonderful memories of her as she always made a great impression with her smile and laughter! I wish she could have had more time.

She will be sadly missed.

I worked with Kim at BCLC and have the fondest memories of her. I would always stop by her desk, and we would chat about our love of animals and wine. She spoke so highly of her family, and I could tell how much she loved her kids. She was a beautiful soul and always enjoyed a good laugh. She will be dearly missed. I am terribly sorry for your loss and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

On behalf of my mother Helen Yaretz/Jozic (née Storzuk) and her children (Sharlene, Nadine, Collin, Ken, Candice & families), we would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Eileen Storzuk and families. Collin lived not too far from Mervin and Eileen in Barnhartvale for several years, and although visits were few, they were enjoyed by all who were able to get together. It is with sad understanding on losing a loved one, take solace that memories will hold strong, and her love will continue.

My condolences to Kim's family. I met Kim at a law firm we both used to work about 5 years ago. She was a wonderful lady. She was funny, warm, genuine and beautiful inside and out. I am so sorry to hear of her passing.
