Kathleen Louise Manning {Reeves} 1952 — 2018

Kathleen Louise Manning {Reeves}

On the morning of March 8th with close family and friends by her side Kathy began her ascent to the gates of heaven, as the heavy gates swung open there stood her beloved husband Keith her son Cole, mother Frances and father Benjamin. All awaiting her arrival with open arms.

Her life spent here was a gift to all whom knew or got the chance to meet her. She formed life- long friendships with ease and cared deeply for those around her. With her endearing personality she inevitably touched the lives of everyone she met in a way that will prove to be everlasting.

Kathy was born in Swift Current Saskatchewan and was the second eldest of seven. She moved to Kamloops at 18 and was proud to call Kamloops her home for 47 years.

Kathy fought a brave battle against cancer, always staying positive her courage never wavered and to the amazement of the health professionals and her family she won round one. But to the dismay of her loved ones the Cancer won round two.

It is with heavy hearts we say our goodbyes, from your Children: Corey, Dean, Kevin and Lorena. Grandchildren Robyn, Kaila, Krista, Keenan and Keanna, great grandchildren Aubree and Linden and your fur babies KC and Finnegan. As well as your siblings Brian, Maxie, Terri, Mike, Bev and Wendy. Along with numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews aunt’s uncles and friends. We all stand together and wish you well as you join your beloved one’s  in heaven. I can just see Keith saying to you:

“can I have this dance?” go have your dance Kathy and do not worry for one day we all will meet again.

A Celebration of life will be announced at a later date once arrangements have been made.

Kathy would have wished in lieu of flowers that any donations be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Cr., South, Kamloops BC V2E 2S9

    I worked with both Keith and Kathy at Weyerhaeuser in the 1970-80s era. You cherished each other then and you’re now back together to cherish each other once more.

    Kathy and Keith were our backyard neighbors.My 2 young daughters spent many days waving and yelling hello to Kathy. Every day when I look out my back window I think of Kathy. Yesterday we heard the back gate open, my kids yelled “It’s Kathy”. I knew she was with us, enjoying the sunshine. She will be missed dearly.

    My life was touched quite deeply by Kathy, and she will forever hold a piece of my heart. Many tears and hugs between us helped to form a strong connection and love for each other. I will always miss her sweet smile and loving presence in my life.

    I find peace in knowing that she has been reunited with Keith and Cole, and look forward to having them there to welcome me when it’s my turn.

    Until we meet again, Kathy.

    Rest in paradise. ❤️

    We were so sorry to hear about Kathy’s passing. She was a lovely lady with a great sense of humour and always had a smile on her face.

    We are so sorry to hear that Kathy has passed away. She and Keith were our neighbors when we lived in Meadowlark. We enjoyed visiting with them and talking to Keith as he “walked“ Casey and Finnegan…his two pals. Kathy was a wonderful, happy person. She helped us when we were moving….mowed our lawn..took boxes to the thrift stores and many more things. She was always happy and friendly and we will always have fond memories of them both.
    Sincere sympathy to the family.
