McDermid, Kathleen Patricia

With deep sadness we announce the passing of Kathleen Patricia McDermid (nee Lane). Born in Lindsay, Ontario on May 5, 1921 she moved to Watford, England with her parents and 4 siblings as a young child. Kathleen (Kay) returned to Canada in 1946 as a war bride.

She is survived by Garnet (husband of 64 years), son Ian (McDermid), daughter-in-law, Leslie (Konkin), daughter Barbara (Barker) and son-in-law John Barker.

Grandchildren Daniel Barker and spouse Sarah Fisher, Michael McDermid, Ashley Barker and fiancé Byron Coggin, Ainsley Beattie (nee McDermid) and husband Timber Beattie. Great grandchildren Kaya, Sam and Michaela. Sister Hilda still residing in England and many nieces and nephews.

Known fondly by her husband as “Katie” we will miss her deep devotion to Garnet and to her family, always putting others first. She had an intense love of nature and all God’s creatures.

To honor Kay’s life, come join us in her garden on Saturday June 27 between 1 and 3 p.m.

Donations can be made to BCSPCA or Critter Care Wildlife in lieu of flowers.
