Kathleen “Kathy” Ball

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother, Kathy Ball, on September 11, 2012 at the age of 74. Kathy was born in Ireland on September 20, 1937. Her sense of humor, strong independence, unwillingness to accept the status quo just because people say you should, acceptance of others for who they are and her belief that you should see the world before you can have an opinion on it made her the person we all loved.

Kathy is survived by her daughter Sheilagh (Alex) Heron and their children Ryan and Olivia; son Ryan Kitto and children Madison, Peyton and Destin; brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews abroad.

A memorial mass for Kathy will be held at the Canadian Martyrs Roman Catholic Church in Invermere, BC on Monday, September 24th, 2012, at 11am. A private family Interment will be held at a later date.

She had all the time in the world for the innocence of a child and as a result we would welcome donations, in lieu of flowers, to the Children’s Make-a-Wish Foundation in her name (in memory of Kathleen Ball), either on-line or through the following address: Make-a-Wish Foundation BC & Yukon, 112, 2025 – West Broadway, Vancouver, BC V6J 1Z6.

Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at: www.mcphersonfh.com
