Kathleen Laird

Peacefully passed away at Salmon Arm, in her 94th year. Predeceased by Bill, her husband of 56 years, in 1999, she leaves her sons Bill (Linda), David (Elizabeth), Douglas (Toni), 9 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren to cherish her memory.

Born in Enderby, and raised on South Pender Island with nine siblings, she met the love of her life in 1943. Married in Victoria, Bill and Kay moved to Sidney where they raised their family. They later moved to Armstrong in the early 70s to pursue the family construction business.

Kay always conducted her life with grace, strength, and dignity. She was known for her wry sense of humour and concern for family, and her pragmatic advice was always valued. The genuine kindness and wisdom she offered left a lasting impression.

The family is grateful to Dr. Amy Megyesi for her steadfast medical care, the wonderful staff at Piccadilly Park Place for their constant consideration of Kay’s needs, and Eila, a special niece who was a devoted companion and caregiver.

A celebration of life, to be announced at a later date, will be held in Armstrong. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to your favourite charity.
