In loving memory of Katheryn “Kitty” Adams of Kamloops, BC who passed away peacefully at Kamloops Hospice on the morning of Sunday, June 24, 2018 at the age of 70, after battling cancer for a year and a half.
Kitty was born in Magrath, Alberta on January 31, 1948. She attended Catholic school, and helped take care of her five siblings growing up. Kitty worked in her family‘s restaurant business, where she met the love of her life, Ed in 1965. Kitty married Ed on November 12, 1966 in Kamloops, BC, and began their life and family together as Kitty worked in sales to help make their dreams reality. Kitty retired early to be able to have more time with her family, and to go hunting and fishing with Ed.
Kitty is survived by her daughter Cheri-Lee Chicoine, her grandchildren Adaira Chicoine and Tanner (Michaela) Chicoine, her great granddaughter Lucy Chicoine, her brother Nick (Gabriele) Esser and family, her sister Marilyn (Harold) Oliver and family, her mother Mary Bruce, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Kitty is predeceased by her firstborn Sandra, her husband Ed, her father Wayne, her stepfather Rod, both sets of grandparents, her in-laws, her brothers Ernie, Frank, and John, and her three uncles, John, Frank and Carl and other family members and friends.

Kitty said her daughter was her lifeline.
Kitty was such an incredibly sweet and unique woman. She enjoyed arts and crafts, getting funky nail designs, tattoos, piercings, and had the greatest sense of humour, many will agree. Kitty will be dearly missed and never forgotten.
