Jillian McKinty

1986 – 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jillian Marie McKinty on November 27, 2013, in Armstrong, BC. Born October 7, 1986 in Vernon, BC, Jillian attended PVSS, graduating in 2005. She was very competent with electronics, loved the cabin and swimming, and was a loving, mother who just enjoyed the humour and joy of caring for her twin boys. She was always happy and loved spending time with the Leighton’s and Danforth’s – her adopted families.

She will be lovingly remembered by twin sons: Ethan and Logan; parents: Terry and Judy McKinty of Armstrong, BC; sister: Bridget (Jared) of Kelowna, BC; grandmother: Carol Maxson of Armstrong, BC; many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, and her Askew’s family.

Those wishing to do may make a donation in Jillian’s memory to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation (938 West 28 Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5Z 4H4). A Celebration of Life will be held for Jillian at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at the Armstrong Bible Chapel (2145 Rosedale Avenue, Armstrong). A trust fund has been set up for Jillian’s sons at Valley First Credit Union in Armstrong. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at
