(nee TANNER)

Kathleen passed away peacefully at the Portage District General Hospital on August 12, 2020. Kathleen was predeceased by Leonard Quinlan (husband), James Tanner (father), Mary Tanner (mother) and Lorne Tanner (brother).
Kathleen was raised in Brunkild, Manitoba. After graduating high school, she moved to Winnipeg and while taking business courses resided at the Winnipeg YWCA where she made many lasting friendships. Kathleen started working at the Winnipeg Clinic, where she was employed for 25 years. She married Len in 1973 and in 1974, they moved to Portage la Prairie. Kathleen worked at CFB Portage in Administration and when the base closed, she retired. After retiring, Kathleen did some volunteer work, especially with the MS Society of Manitoba and the Manitoba Metis Federation which she continued to do while in Lions Prairie Manor. Kathleen loved to travel and when she married Len they would go to country music festivals and to Len's military reunions and renew their many acquaintances. Kathleen will be greatly missed by the Tanner, Frantz and Lake families as well as her many friends. Rest in peace Kathleen.
