June 12, 1969 – Kamloops, BC
January 4, 2015 – Okotoks, AB
Kim’s brave battle with cancer came to a peaceful end on Sunday, January 4, 2015 with her husband John Sera by her side.
Throughout her courageous battle, Kim never lost her humour and grace. Her infectious smile, witty humour, and selfless actions made Kim a pleasure to be around. Whether it was quickly in passing, or a full day of chit-chat, Kim always lifted your spirits.
Kim moved to Alberta from British Columbia in the late 1990’s where she quickly gained friends that would later evolve into her chosen family. Always the entertainer, she often occupied the role of hostess, party planner, card giver, and event decorator. Kim’s love for throwing amazing wedding showers or Christmas parties on a Dollar Store budget became legendary in many circles. The most generous of souls, Kim would give all she had just to make the other person’s event magical.
Through work, Kim met her husband John Sera, sharing a common bond for the love of hockey. Kim a devoted Vancouver Canucks fan, and John the proudest of Calgary Flames fans. Their love for each other was never “shut-out” even during the closest of hockey games. Three years later, they were blessed with their beautiful daughter Georgia. If you had ever asked Kim what she wanted out of life, she would have said “to be a mother and a wife”. With John, she was able to build a loving home for their darling little “G” and her furry brothers River and Gunnar, just as she had always wished for.
Kim lived her life without regret. She was happy with who she was, what she did, and how she lived. Spending holidays with her friends, going to parent-child events, baking muffins, and loving life is how she approached every day. Those that knew Kim best would say she was sweet, humble, giving, funny, and compassionate. Kim was the essence of life, and will forever live on in all that she touched.
Kim was predeceased by her father George Louis Corley and she will continue to be loved and missed by her husband John; daughter Georgia; her mother Lois Comeau (Terry); in-laws, Brian Sera, Karen Kellerman and Constance Taylor; as well as her extended family and friends.
