Kim was an amazing person and one whom you could count on for a smile and a delightful greeting on the street while passing her by. My words cannot express the sorrow I feel, please accept my deepest heartfelt condolences.
When I heard of Kim’s passing I was shocked. She was a wonderful daycare provider to our son. She was a remarkable member of DBC during my tenure there. Above all else, and what she will be most remembered for, was being a genuinely wonderful person. Prayers are with you all in your time of grief and loss. Condolences to the entire family.
So shocked to hear of Kim’s passing. I knew both her parents and have know her since she worked at Valley Charcoal. The little ones will miss her, so will I.
Kim was a great friend and she will be missed by us all. We were lucky to have Kim in our lives and to have her play a huge part in raising our daughter Lilah in her daycare. We love her lots.
My deepest condolences are with you. I would see Kim pushing a 6 baby stroller quite frequently. She was also our paper girl way back in the 80s! She was a wonderful woman

We are all so sad with losing our dear Kim. She was a genuinely kind, compassionate, caring person and loyal friend. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel:
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Kim was a wonderful and caring person taken too soon from this life on earth. She always greeted everyone with a hug and smile and welcomed everyone into her home. She will be missed so much . Love and prayers going out to Steve Helena Cam Sebastian Lisa Matt Olivia Terry and all of us who love her and miss her.
Our deepest condolences on such a sad and tragic loss. My husband went to high school with Kim and I got to know her through our occasional meet ups at the Dundas library with our daycare children. I was always greeted with a beautiful smile and she was always interested in how everyone was. A truly wonderful person who’s smile will be genuinely missed in our town. She will not be forgotten.

To me, Kim personified neighbours in Dundas. Since first moving to town she was always a pleasure to see walking in the neighbourhood with a smile or kind word to share and always willing to help in our community. Our sincere sympathies to her loving family.
Dear Steve & Family,
Our deepest condolences for your terrible loss, Kim was a wonderful person, always took time to say hello, she was so friendly, companionate and caring. Our thoughts are with you and your family.
So sorry to hear about Kim’s passing. Our family has known Kim for a long time. She was a good friend of my daughter Tammy, they hung out a lot in school. After she got married she lived down the street from us on Park St. She was always smiling & happy going down the street with a line of children.
Our deepest sympathy Steve, Helena & Lisa

Although I did not personal know Kim, I have known her brother Terry for over 30 years. His stories of her make me feel I did know her in some small way and could truly understand how much she will be missed by all. I will continue to help watch over Terry for her until they meet again. Rest in peace dear lady and God bless you and your family.

I only meet Kim a couple of times but her bother Terry is probably one of my closest friends. I always remember Kim a person well ground and a person who loved her husband, family and Terry, as well as, someone who would welcome friends like me into their family circle. About 4 years ago myself Kim, Steve, Terry and friends of theirs went to Jamaca and I got to spend about a week with all of them. It was the last time I saw Kim. She was having so much fun and I will always remember that great smile of hers. Apparently, God had a different plan for and as hard as it is for us to understand we know she has gone to build a home in Heaven for us and will be wait for us there with open arms and that beautiful smile when it is our turn to meet our Father. She was a wonderful caring human and will be missed by a lot of people as indicated by the celebration of her life today!
I was married to Kim’s brother Terry, over 20 years ago, so have many happy memories of her, and all the family. Always a happy fun person and a joy to be around. Hope it brings you peace knowing she is now with her parents and loving heavenly father. Deepest condolences to Steve, Terry, and all family. God’s love be with you all.
So very sad to hear of Kim’s passing. She was such a beautiful person inside and out.
I first met Kim when she worked at Valley Charcoal all those years ago. Although I did not see Kim on a regular basis when I did she always gave a hug and asked how I was doing.
My deepest condolences to the entire family.
Rest in Peace Kim.
I was so shocked to hear of Kim’s passing. I’ve had the great pleasure of having many conversations with Kim over the years whenever she passed by our house, often with a gaggle of children. She was such a warm and thoughtful person and I always left those conversations being struck by her sincere, caring nature. Kim was a rare beauty in this world. My deepest condolences to Steve, Lisa, Helena and family.
Gone too soon. What a great lady. Her beautiful smile will be greatly missed on the streets of Dundas.
Kim came running to the rescue, when my dad had a fall a few months ago. She had such a kind heart. Always so caring. She will be fondly remembered.
Steve, Helena, Lisa, Terry, she is back in her mom and dad’s arms. Our thoughts are with you at this time.

To Steve and Family,
Please accept our deepest heartfelt condolences on the news of Kim’s passing.
Kim smiled warmly to whomever she met.
Kim was a very high-spirited person, living life to the fullest, who touched many peoples lives with her kindness including ours.

I had the privilege to meet Kim and her extended family & friends through her brother Terry, and I was fortunate to make numerous trips over the years to visit with her family and friends, of which I considered to be my second set of family & friends. Kim was always making sure everyone was having fun and always showed the best hospitality while staying at their home. I’ll always remember our Jamaica trip where a group of us (family & friends) enjoyed visiting, eating, sightseeing, and a whole lot of laughing—and again, Kim was making sure we all had fun and being the life of the party. I was deeply saddened to hear of her passing, but realize she is not suffering anymore and has gone to the bigger party in Heaven. We will all greatly miss her here on earth, but I know I’ll get to see her one day in Heaven and reminisce our good times once again. Love & Prayers to her family & friends.
