Kim Elisabeth Van Vliet was filled with sage advice and a snarky sense of humour. She was a deeply committed mother and had the remarkable gift of making people feel seen. She was a passionate reader from childhood and became an inspired librarian in her 40s. She loved days filled with canoeing, walking, swimming, sauna, and a good family crib tournament. She found solace in creativity and continued to sew and knit until the week before she passed.
Kim was born on October 26, 1961 in Toronto and passed away on the evening of March 9, 2023, in her home in Winnipeg, surrounded by family.
Kim continues to be loved and remembered by her partner of 36 years, Andrew Vaisius, their children and partners, Emily (Heinz), Ruby (Astrid), Grey (Marina), Boreal and Demeter (Tellis), and three grandchildren, Linden, Tommi Jean, and Finnley; as well as her four siblings and extended family in Canada, the USA, Holland and Finland.
She will be celebrated with tea and toast and a good dance party.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • So very sorry for your loss Andrew and family. What a privilege to get to know Kim for so many years when Iā€™d deliver eggs either to your home or to the library. I was always greeted with a heartfelt warm smile and really missed her smiles and chat when you moved to Wpg. Kim will always be in my memories of her love for others. You all have wonderful memories to cherish. She will forever live in your hearts šŸ’• - Posted by: Betty Neufeld (Friend in Morden ) on: Apr 01, 2023
