<div itemprop="description">Our Mom “Kath” passed away peacefully on November 7th, 2016 at the age of 96. She is happily reunited with her husband Alan, which has been her long standing desire. <br> <br> <br>Kath was born near Rochester, Kent, England. She had a desire to be a teacher of languages, which was interrupted by the Second World War. During the war living in London, Mom was a Dictaphone Operator during the day, and in the evening a Rooftop Firefighter. She would marry the love of her life Alan in 1941, and in February of the same year immigrate to Canada. Arriving in Halifax she boarded a train which took her to Calgary where she would meet her in-laws. All the while Alan served in the RCAF until 1943 when he was shipped back to Canada to be an instructor. Both Mom and Dad had a most involved and long standing relationship with St. Mary Anglican Church of Oak Bay, where they were both choir members. <br> <br> <br>Kath is survived by her sons Tom (Anna) and Bob (Robin); grandchildren: Lawrence, Vanessa, Katrina, Johnathan; and a great-granddaughter Anastasia. <br> <br> <br>The family would like to extend a special Thank You to the staff at the James Bay Care Centre. <br> <br></div>
