We Remember

HRYNUIK, Kathleen “Kathy” (née Gordon)

July 2, 1957 — October 30, 2023

At the young age of 66, Kathy Hrynuik passed away, while surrounded by the love of her family, on October 30, 2023.

Her spirit has gone to join her sister Colleen, her cousin Rob, and her bonus son Matthew. She leaves behind her son Justin; her daughter Selena (Nick); and granddaughter Phaedra; as well as her brothers Kenn (Deb) and Cameron (Sherry); her brother-in-law Donald; cousin Maureen (Greg); her nephews & nieces, James, Kelsey, Mackenzie, Michael, Daniel, Caitlyn, Andrea, Parris, Phoenix, Fox, and Spencer; and of course her faithful four-legged friend, her dog, Freyja.

Kathy’s home was more than just a physical space; it was a sanctuary for those seeking refuge, be it people or cats. Much like the bright sunflowers that she loved so much, Kathy brightened the world around her. She was a wellspring of strength, unwavering in her support, and remarkably free of judgment. Her candid and forthright nature was a testament to her honesty and integrity, she was a straight shooter. Her light will forever shine on through the people she helped, as they in turn help others.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mamas for Mamas.

    So saddened to hear of Kathy’s passing. Such a strong and kind person lost far too soon. My deepest sympathies to Justin, Selena, and all of Kathy’s family and friends. So very fitting to help carry on Kathy’s legacy with donations to Mamas for Mamas, an organization that seems to embody Kathy’s spirit so well.
