It is with great sadness that the family of Kathy Butterfield announces her passing after battling early onset Alzheimer’s disease for almost a decade, on Wednesday, 26 June 2019, at the age of 66 years, in Kamloops, BC.
Kathy was predeceased by her parents, George and Ellen Bruner. She will be lovingly remembered by her devoted husband of 47 years, Frank, and children Tara (Ryan), Val (Jimmy) and Kenny (Maria).
Kathy will be greatly missed by her seven grandchildren; Kai, Kole, Kali, Cohen, Keyo, Keeden and Keirson and her brothers; Larry (Barb), Ken (Joy), Keith (Rose) and sister in law Julie.
Kathy will be fondly remembered for her big laugh and outgoing personality. She was a lifelong lover of reading, curling, baseball and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Ponderosa Lodge in Kamloops, BC was the first care home that Kathy resided at, thanks to the staff there for their great care and attention to Kathy.
A special thanks to the health care aides, nurses and support staff at Ridgeview Lodge in Kamloops, BC for taking such great care of Kathy during her time there.
