Kathleen May Mitchell (nee Heppell) of Calgary, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, August 22, 2007 at the age of 89 years.
Kathleen was born on March 25, 1918 in New Haven, Sussex, England, and came to Canada at the age of two, and lived her life in Calgary. She was a devoted mother and grandmother who spent her life spoiling her family and her many pets. Kathleen touched the lives of all who knew her and will be greatly missed.
