Katherine (Kaye) Whitehead

Passed away on March 20, 2012 at the age of 81 after a brave struggle with cancer.

Kaye was a long time resident of Vernon. She and her late husband Wes were the last private owners of the CPR Station House in Paddlewheel Park. In 1983, they donated the Station House to the Okanagan Landing and District Community Association and thereafter she maintained a keen interest in its history and restoration.

Kaye had a strong sense of adventure and she and Wes were enthusiastic travellers exploring many parts of the world.

She is sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughter Verlee, her son-in-law John, her beloved grandson David, her brothers and sisters and their families and her dear friend Mel.

In accordance with her wishes there will be no funeral. Those wishing to do so may make a donation in her memory to the Okanagan Landing and District Community Association and designate it for the Museum Project. The address is OK Landing Stationhouse Museum Project at 7828 Okanagan Landing Bench Rd, Vernon B.C. V1H 1H3.

Many thanks to Dr. Arnold, his staff, the nursing care of VJH 3 West and Vernon Hospice House for their tremendous care, guidance and support to Kaye on her last journey.

Arrangements have been entrusted to:
