It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our sister, Kyla, on January 11, 2023.
Kyla served in the Canadian Air Force from 1991 to 2014 when an injury received while in active service caused her early retirement.
Kyla is survived by her siblings, Dean, Chad, Renée and Rob.
A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring.

We'll miss you but we know you're
standing on the rainbow bridge now
with all your beloved fur babies.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • Kyla, aka Pinky, always radiated light and love. On my very first day at Homewood, she welcomed me in and assured me it would all be okay. From then on, we always greeted each other with a big hug (even tho it wasn’t allowed lol!). She taught me how to hand make toques and she never hesitated to give me more yarn or pom-poms to make them. When she graduated from the program, she even gave me her blanket because she knew I was always cold. Getting to know and learn from such a compassionate and loving person is something I will forever be grateful for. Kyla, you changed my life for the better and helped me so much on my recovery journey. Your graduation party is a memory I will always hold close to me, your smile lit up the whole unit while you were there. I love you, Pinky. - Posted by: Riley (Homewood copatient & friend) on: Jan 25, 2023

  • I met Kyla (Pinky) during my journey at Homewood Health centre, I remember walking past her pink room wondering who’s room that could be. Kyla took me under her wing and called me red, She inspired me to view recovery in other ways, She always snuck me into her room (even would get in trouble for me) and this one time we even threw a grad party when Kyla had finished her time at Homewood. My special memory with Kyla would have to be celebrating Christmas with her bundle of joy energy, I remember her showing us her precious pets back at home. Kyla, our memories together will never be forgotten, you helped me in ways no one else could and for that I am forever grateful that I met you when I had the chance. Love you forever and always - Love red - Posted by: Maggie (Homewood patient ) on: Jan 25, 2023

  • Kyla, it was a sad day when I found out you were gone. I am broken without you, a piece of me is missing now. I feel only a little better as I know you are not in any more pain, but I selfishly still wish you were here... so I can hear your laugh, we can still go places together and travel, and chat into the night. And so many other things! Yes, it just isn't the same. I miss you. - Posted by: Daina Laniuk (dear friend) on: Jan 21, 2023
