FUDGE, Kathleen Diane (nee Hawkins)

January 7, 1949 – April 28, 2014. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kathleen, predeceased by her husband Ken in 2005 and her father Channing in 1970. She will be dearly missed by her loving children Sarah and Noel (Rebecca), her mother Mary, and her sisters Carell (Art) and Sheila (Keith). Kathleen leaves behind her beloved grandchildren, Gavin and Liam. She was adored aunt to Lisa (Kevin) and Natalya and great-aunt to Clay, Flora, and Violet. She grew up in Burnaby, where she attended Burnaby South and UBC. After a brief sojourn in Fort St. James, Kathleen and Ken made their home in Maple Ridge, where she enjoyed a long career as medical office assistant with Drs. Bhatti and Grist. Kathleen took great joy in family gatherings on Galiano, where she loved to explore the beach, collecting fragments of blue willow washed in by the waves. She had a profound respect for nature, enjoyed gardening and loved birds. She was a discerning novel reader and engaging story-teller with a mischievous sense of humor. Her artistic eye and creative mind were expressed throughout her home. She connected deeply with people and inspired fierce loyalty among many dear friends. Kathleen was compassionate and patient, a gentle and thoughtful observer of human nature. She taught us to rejoice our weaknesses as well as our strengths. She aspired to live in the moment and accepted the vicissitudes of life with a quiet courage. Donations in her memory may be made to “Save the Children.” Condolences may be sent to:
