Kathleen peacefully passed away on 19 August 2023 at the age of 93, at the Shenkman Palliative Care Unit at the Elizabeth Bruyère Hospital in Ottawa. She will be fondly remembered by her four children: Tracy (Matthew Kirby) from Melbourne, Australia, Alison (Othmar Stein) from Ottawa, John (Josée Boisclair) from Halifax, and Ian (Stéphane Cyr) from Montréal. Kathleen was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 56 years, Gordon. She will be greatly missed by her two grandchildren, Marissa and Dylan. Additionally, she was preceded in death by her older brother Ted Kimpton (Gay) from Burlington, ON, and is survived by her older sister Eileen from Peterborough, ON, and her younger brother David Kimpton from Thunder Bay, ON.

A private family service will be held at Beechwood Cemetery to honor Kathleen’s memory. Throughout her life, Kathleen strongly believed in the power of charity. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to be made to either the Salvation Army or the Bruyère Foundation, as a gesture to continue Kathleen’s legacy of helping others.
