KEMLO, Victoria (Vicky) Anne (nee Hunter)

May 24, 1948 – Charlottetown, PEI
October 20, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Victoria Kemlo of Calgary, passed away on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at the age of 70 years.

Victoria grew up as an excellent student and talented singer and guitarist. She worked as a secretary for PEI Agriculture and regularly performed on local CBC TV. She often sang socially with Gene MacLellan of “Snowbird” and performed at many weddings and competitions in PEI including winning ‘Miss Congeniality’ at the Summerside Carnival pageant. Victoria moved to Calgary in the mid ‘70s and started her long-term career with TD Bank. She met Kevin in 1978 and married in 1980. She continued to sing for friends and their weddings and with her husband, she enjoyed many vacations and took up snow skiing and golf which she enjoyed immensely and made new friends. Her love of family and friends was always apparent by her smile and attitude with siblings, nieces, nephews and friends and was always happy with participating in social gatherings. Her greatest achievement was supporting her husband and always being the love of his life. Victoria will always be remembered for her enthusiasm, friendliness and humor.

Victoria is survived by her husband Kevin Kemlo, her siblings, Ian (Shirley) Hunter, Stratford, PEI, Sandra (Robert) King, York Point, PEI, Marjorie Hunter, Charlottetown, PEI, Patty Hunter, Evansburg, AB, Marlene (Harry) Oneil, Bedford, NS, Terry (Gladys) Hunter, Ottawa ON, numerous nieces and nephews, and Jazz the cat.

Victoria was predeceased by her parents Tom and Eileen Hunter, Charlottetown, PEI.

  4. So sorry to hear about Auntie Vicky. She was definitely one of my more favourite Aunts as she always had plenty of hugs and kisses whenever we saw her. I treasure the short time I spent living with you and having you as my temporary parents :-). Auntie Vicky always had a smile on her face and a song to sing about everyone or everything. I will truly miss you ❤️ Love Eryn, George, Arabella, and Brielle. Xoxo

  17. Kevin it goes without saying how sorry I am to hear of Vicky’s passing. I always got a kick out of watching her laugh at my dirty jokes even though she likely wanted to say you sick bas#%ard. I’ll miss not seeing her if I ever get back to Calgary. Take care of yourself Kevin

  21. Kevin, we were all so happy and pleased that we were able to travel to Calgary to be with you as we said farewell to our Vicki or as I called her “Vic the Hick”. I don’t know how many times during the past few weeks that, we, PEI ladies, in talking with one, have said, “when Marlene and Vicki come down” or “when did you tell Vicki to be ready”. Each one of us have been doing this’ just this afternoon when I was chatting with Marjorie on the phone and talking about her journey home…when I should have said Marlene, I said “Vicki”. Again “thank you” for all that you did for us when we were in Calgary. We all miss her deeply. Hopefully you’ll be able to journey east this coming summer, I know for sure that Mike would love to be out on the course with you. Love you Kevin. Sincerely Shirley
