Kathleen is survived by two daughters, Laurel Murdoch and Heather MacLeod; and three grandchildren, Kathleen Deman (Cody), Haley MacLeod, and Simon MacLeod. She was predeceased by her husband James.

In her younger adult life, she volunteered at the Hull Home, Save the Children Fund, CNIB (reading to the blind), Kappa Gamma Women’s Group, and the YWCA World Council.

    On behalf of Marie Harper and family (Stuart, Heather, Cheryl and Jill) we are sorry to hear of Kay’s passing and send our heartfelt condolences to her loving family. Kay and Jim enjoyed many social times with our folks Marie and Jack attending Stampeder Football games, Stampede barbecues to dinner and dancing at the Petroleum Club. Kay was the true life of the party (joy de vivre) and we have fond memories of her trying to teach us hula dancing to the music Don Ho. Kay’s daughters and grandchildren were no doubt the highlight of her life and may the wonderful memories of this beautiful soul comfort you during this sad time.
