Kathleen “Kay” Haverstock (nee Roberts)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kathleen on December 10, 2013 at the age of 97 in Kimberley, BC.

She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Joan (Gary), her granddaughter Sheri (Joe) and grandson David (Melissa). Kay was predeceased by her husband Philip in 1993.

Kay was born in Bellevue on October 25, 1916 and spent her early years in Alberta and BC. She met her future husband Phil in Edmonton and, following their marriage in Cadomin on December 24, 1938, lived in Goldfields, Saskatchewan and Yellowknife, NWT. Kay and her family moved to Kimberley in 1949 where she lived happily until her passing.

Kay was a long-time member of the Eagles in Kimberley and an active member of the Catholic Women’s League at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. She also enjoyed camping, travelling with Phil and spending time at their summer property on Lazy Lake.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Kimberley Special Care Home “The Pines” for the wonderful care she received during the past year.

Cremation has taken place.

A Funeral Mass for Kay will be held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Kimberley on Friday, May 9, 2014 at 11:00 am. Her Interment will follow in the Kimberley Cemetery.
