Kathleen Victoria Read (nee Kirkwood)

October 3, 1953 – October 19, 2021
In Loving Memory ~
Born in Burnaby to David and Evelyn Kirkwood, Kathy lived in Vancouver and Burnaby until moving to Agassiz in 1994. She is survived by her husband Ron and son David, and brothers Vin, Kevin (Marcia) and Keith Kirkwood and numerous nieces and nephews.
Kathy worked for B.C. Tel (Telus) for many years. She rode and showed horses, was a 4-H leader and proud supporter of dog rescue. She loved knitting, sewing and photography, always looking for the best shots of eagles, great blue herons and the family pets. Over a period of several years she built a detailed genealogy of the Read and Kirkwood families.
Kathy fought and won two battles with cancer but lost her final round of breast cancer.
Special thanks to the nurses and doctors of 3rd Floor North at C.G.H. and Cascades Hospice.
