Kathleen Elizabeth Anne Hill

Born: May 9th, 1952

Passed on: October 29th, 2017

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kathleen (Kathy) Elizabeth Anne Hill (née Garies) at the Chinook Care Centre, Calgary, on September 29, 2017 at the age of 65 years. Kathy was born on May 9, 1952 in Swift Current, Saskatchewan and completed her schooling there. She graduated from Medicine Hat, Alberta, as a Registered Nurse in 1973 and moved to Yellowknife where she was to meet her future husband. They married and settled in Calgary before moving to St. John's, Newfoundland. She was a very dedicated worker, both in the workplace and as a parent. Her skills were equally evident in her pastimes in the garden and as a chef in the kitchen. Throughout her life Kathy was troubled by health issues principally arising from kidney disease. This was greatly alleviated for many years by a kidney donation from her brother Bob, but eventually her health relapsed and deteriorated to such an extent that she had to resort to renal dialysis, on which she depended for the past thirteen years. Kathy is survived by her loving husband, Brian, of St. John's; son, Rory (Ji-Hye) of Calgary; daughter, Kirsty Morelli (Corey) of Whitby, Ontario; grandchildren, Kailyn, Grayson and Ryder; siblings Robert "Bob" (Rachel) of Invermere, B.C., Mike (Lucy) of St. Albert, Alberta, Jim (Lorraine) of Calgary, John (Elaine) of Swift Current; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents George and Anne Garies, sister Linda and two infant sisters Mary and Michelle. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to The Kidney Foundation of Canada (https://www.kidney.ca/). The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the doctors and staff at the South Calgary dialysis centre, Foothills Hospital, and Chinook Care Centre. A private family service will be held in Swift Current, Sask. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared through www.evanjstrong.com. Arrangements in care of EVAN J.
