Kathleen Zirk

ZIRK, Kathleen - Obituary Photo (Web)-gigapixel-standard-scale-2_00x.jpeg


September 16, 1958 - July 12, 2022

Kathy...How to begin. I guess that trying to describe her with one word would be near impossible because she was; Loving, Kind, beautiful, generous, honourable, thoughtful, fiercely loyal, driven, curious and wonderful just to start.


Kathleen grew up with a large family by today's standards and I’m sure was the great environment that formed the wonderful person we had the honour of having in our lives. She had 3 brothers and 2 sisters and a devoted mother and father to help her learn how to treat people the way she would like to be treated so I thank them for that because we all reaped that benefit.


She was always proud to say that she had a lot of nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews and great great.... okay I’ll stop now. But I know she loved them all.


Kathy had a good working life too that started at Marshall Wells and resulted in good friends that she still has today. After that she worked for 36 years at Western Supplies that is now a part of Emco. I can attest to the fact that she always strove to get things done the right way and gave and got the respect and friendship that everyone wants in a workplace.


Kathy was not always patient, however. If things would take a bit longer than she expected them to, you could almost time it and expect to hear "READY" ! And you would know that you had to get your A- - in gear or else.


Kathy was always generous and ready to give people what they needed if she was able. If it was moral support or a kind word or money, she was ready to help.


Kathleen had a lot of interests and over the last Several summers it has been spending time in the garden. We spent a lot of time maintaining our 5 small gardens around the house being sure to take water - or other beverages - in the TIKI hut. We spent a lot of time together enjoying that and each other.


I am going to miss her friendship, sense of humour and all her other wonderful qualities.
