Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I am very sorry for your loss, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Kerry and I grew up together, I spent a lot of time with her, baba and Mr. Stanley. Sleep overs after school, 4H tie dyed shirts, grand beach and white out birthdays; so many happy and amazing memories. - Posted by: Maureen Simpson (Childhood friend) on: Dec 12, 2022

  • Kerry was a lovely light at New Westminster youth clinic, when a special group of people I am still lucky enough to call colleagues and friends worked there, many years ago. Kerry was the first face our patients would see at reception, always with a smiling, warm welcome. She was unfailingly good humored and supportive to patients and staff, a pleasure to work with, and easy on the eye. I remember her infectious laugh, her (then) curly hair and sassy outfits. She loved her family and spoke of them often. I am saddened to hear of her passing. She brought a lot of fun and energy into that basement clinic, even in mid winter. My condolences to her family and friends. - Posted by: Blanka Jurenka (Friend/work colleague ) on: Dec 02, 2022

  • Kate and Hal, so very sorry for your loss. I have many found memories growing up with Kerry. I take peace in knowing that she is no longer suffering. I am sure Kerry and Baba are living it up in Heaven listening to Elvis Presley and playing cards (sevens/hola). Love Cindee - Posted by: Cindee Bialek (cousin) on: Nov 29, 2022
