We loved our Mom
Born in Saskatoon SK, in 1931, Kathleen was raised on the family farm just outside of Donnybrook, SK. She moved to Trail, BC in 1949. During her time in the Kootenays, she raised and loved her 6 children. Kathleen loved socializing and had a passion for good food and shopping. She had a beautiful smile that could brighten your day and a laugh that warmed the soul. She loved the outdoors and enjoyed many memorable outings with her husband Max, hunting, fishing and camping at the Arrow Yacht Club. She loved her sports and spent time watching the Habs, the Bluejays and curling. Known as the baking Grama, everyone craved her peanut butter nanaimo bar with a perfect cup of tea. Her hugs made the world’s troubles disappear and her generous spirit never left anyone wanting.
She is predeceased by her parents, John & Flora Meabry, her brothers Alvin, Lyle & Vernon and her sister Estella Cronk. She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Maxime, her 6 children Diane (Dan), Brien (Heather), Beverley (Jack), Roland (Lucie), Wendy (David), Gerald (Delaina) and her 14 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her beloved sister-in-laws Vivian Meabry and Eugenia (Ron) Healey, and brothers-in-law Garnet and Carl (Helen) Lepine.
Mom, we will miss you and you will always be in our hearts. We find comfort knowing you will be looking over us and keeping us safe. A celebration of her life will be held in Trail in the spring.
