It is with heavy hearts the family of Kathleen "Kathy" Ann Myra (Steele) announce her peaceful passing at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital on Thursday, November 28, 2019. Kathy was born in Fredericton, NB on April 4, 1949 to the late Thomas and Helen Steele (Gibson).
Kathy got the most enjoyment from spending time with her companion Solice, summers at New River Beach, the many holidays she was able to spend with her daughters and grandchildren, and traveling with friends. Kathy will always be remembered for her loving nature, her ability to make people laugh, her kind heart, and her unwavering strength and faith. She made being available to others a priority, and never had a shortage of the most comforting hugs and a smile to brighten anyone’s day.
She is survived by her two loving daughters, Alexandria (Michael) Steele-Knox and Courtney (Omar Odeh) Myra as well as her brother, Harry (Lyne) Steele, and sister Elizabeth (Tony) Dean. She will forever be lovingly remembered by the lights of her life, her grandchildren Logan, Michaela, Aurora, Lilly, Ameera, Laith and Layla, as well as many nieces and nephews, dear friends, and "brothers" and "sisters" of her congregation.
Referencing her strength her grandson said "superheroes don’t exist but Grandma does". Truer words have never been spoken. We will always remember and cherish our superhero. May she rest peacefully.
As per Kathy’s wishes, there will be no funeral or visitation. A memorial will be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness at 1045 St. Mary’s St in Fredericton on Wednesday December 4, 2019 at 1 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family have requested donations be made to The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses or a charity of choice in honour of Kathy.
