1946 to 2015

We sadly announce the passing of Kathy Kiryna on June 3, 2015 at Vernon Jubilee Hospital after a heroic three year battle with cancer. She was born in Birtle, Manitoba, raised in The Pas, Manitoba, hired out to work on Vancouver Island and finally moved to Vernon in 1996. She is survived by her loving husband of 29 years, Joseph; brothers Mike (Deb) from Saskatchewan, Kevin (Debby) from Vancouver Island; sisters Jenny (Carter) from Nova Scotia, Bette (Tom) of Vancouver; sister-in-law Donna from Winfield; many nephews, nieces, cousins and their children. Kath was predeceased by her dad Earnest, her mom Kathleen and brother John.

Pastor John Hendrik will officiate at Glad Tiding Church, Armstrong on June 17 at 2 pm.

Special thanks to Dr. Hardy and staff at Vernon Cancer Clinic, all gracious staff at VGH Spinal Surgery unit, Dr. Picking, and Bethel Funeral for helping with the arrangements. Thank you to all.
