MORRISON, Kathi Allison

October 2, 1959 – Calgary, AB
September 4, 2018 – Calgary, AB

Kathi Allison Morrison, beloved partner and companion of Ken Argue, passed away suddenly on September 4, 2018 at the age of 58 years. Kathi sustained an acute and unexpected stroke. After fighting in the ICU so resiliently (unbelievably), her short and persevering struggle ended peacefully, and without pain. Kathi was surrounded by her family until the end and was never alone.

Kathi was an administrative secretary with the Calgary Board of Education for over twenty-five years and retired early. Kathi’s kind nature and good-heartedness touched the lives of many friends, colleagues, students, hockey moms, and her son’s friends that she treated as her own.

Kathi is survived by her common-law partner and love of her life, Ken Argue; son, Kyle Morrison; daughter-in-law, Justine Morrison; future grandchild (she was so excited, and so proud); siblings and siblings-in-law, Sharon Roberts, Linda and Peter Holt, Richard Jackson; and her dog Jack, a loving, loyal, and mischievous companion.

Kathi was predeceased by former husband, Mark Morrison; parents, Albert and Thelma Jackson; brother, Michael Jackson; brother-in-law, Dave; and sister-in-law, Rhonda.

Special thank-you to the Foothills ICU staff and all those from AHS who made such a positive impact on Kathi’s family.

Memorial Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Chapel of the Bells, 2720 Centre Street North, Calgary, AB), on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. Reception to follow at the Funeral Home. Graveside Service will be held at a later date. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Calgary Humane Society, 4455 – 110th Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB T2C 2T7, Telephone: (403)205-4455, www.calgaryhumane.ca. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
    Kathi was my first contact when I moved to this city while enrolling Marlon at Colonel Irving. She welcomed us with open arms and guidance throughout this change of schools. Through hockey Kyle and Martel became best of friends to this day, 24 years of friendship.
    Words are never adequate in moments like these.
    Our deepest condolences to you upon the passing of Kathi.

  6. Kyle & Family, so so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was such a lovely gentle soul! She was so kind to my mother in law Ona who lived across the street on Holmwood – always appreciated that and we enjoyed each others company when we got together for school or kid related events. Best wishes to you all and congratulations on your expected new family member. Sincerely and kindest thoughts, Cate Graham (Ayla’s Mom)

  7. I was very sad to hear about your loss. Kathi was an excellent admin secretary at Colonel Irvine – efficient and organized – but above all a kind and friendly face to all those that needed help, staff, students, parents and visitors alike. Whenever I needed help Kathi was there with a smile. We chatted and laughed often in the office and at staff gatherings. I know she was especially proud of you, Kyle, but not in a boastful way (that wasn’t her style) – just a quiet pride. It saddens me that I won’t be there for her funeral as I’m in Scotland right now, but I’ll be thinking fondly of Kathi on that day.
