CHAMPAGNE, Kathleen “Kay”
December 22, 1926 — October 25, 2019
It is with overwhelming sadness to announce the loss of our Mother, our Mere. Kay passed away on Friday, October 25, 2019, at the age of 92. She leaves behind her son Gary and daughter-in-law Ruth; her grandchildren Tanis and Colin (Christa); and her great grandchildren Tyler, Josh, Kailey, Gabrielle, Hannah, Julianne and Jacob. Sadly, she was predeceased by her husband Lucian and her son Bobby.
Born in Croydon, England on December 22, 1926, Kay came to Canada as a War Bride and settled on the family farm in Manitoba. Later, she moved to Burnaby, BC; she loved being by the ocean, however she retired to the Okanagan to be near her son and family on the ranch in the Kettle Valley. She enjoyed many hobbies: knitting, quilting, china painting and playing bridge at the Rutland Senior Centre. She was strong, independent, and a kind woman who will be sadly missed and remain in our hearts forever.
A reception will be held on Saturday afternoon, November 23, 2019 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm in the Springfield Funeral Home Family Centre, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. If you wish to send a condolence, post photos or share a memory, please scroll down the page to the area called “Condolences”.
