July 22, 1946 - October 27, 2023

It is with great sadness and a deep love that we announce the loss of Kim Michell who passed away surrounded by family at the age of 77 on October 27, 2023.

Kim goes to join her sister Alix who went before her.

Those left to treasure her memory are her husband of 54 years, Eric; their children Geoff (Tina) and Ted (Louise); grandchildren Eva, Cara, Alex, and Susanna; and her sisters Bari (Tony) and Fran (Rod); as well as cousins, nieces and nephews, and many dear friends.

On July 22, 1946, Kim was born in Victoria, BC to her parents Alexander and Dorothy Kellington. At the age of 9, after her mother passed away, Kim moved to live with her Aunt and Uncle (Elsie and Hugh MacLeod) in Salmon Arm, BC, where she spent her elementary and secondary school years until moving on to post-secondary in Victoria, BC, and Vancouver, BC.

In Kim's adult years, she made a meaningful career as an elementary school teacher and grew a beautiful family of her own with her beloved husband, Eric. Kim was an exceptional mother who cherished her family and was devoted to making their house a home.

Kim loved her walking, cross stitch, and her book club and also enjoyed exploring the countryside by going for drives with her husband, Eric.

She is remembered by her kind, thoughtful, and caring attitude towards life, and she truly made an impact on those who were blessed to know her.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date in honour of Kim.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Society,
