Kathleen Joyce Burgess
It is with sad and broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Kathleen (Kathy) Burgess of Grand Manan, NB on October 11, 2022.
Kathy loved living. She raised four children. Kathy worked in the home as a young mother and then joined the workforce later. She worked in her father's store until his retirement and then she joined Kindred Home Care as a homecare worker. She loved this job and grew to love her clients as well. Kathy loved gardening, knitting and beachcombing. She also loved to spend time with her family. In recent years, Kathy loved and worshipped The Lord. She found a church home at Immanuel Family Church. Rev. and Mrs. McComiskey and the church family loved and accepted her there.
Kathy is survived by her children: Lloyd (Becky), Irene (Billy), Laura (Michael) and Christopher (Amber), 28 grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is also survived by her parents: John and Charmaine Brown, as well as her siblings: Steven (Tanya), Charlie (Claudia), Lisa (Bev) and their families, aunts, uncles and cousins. Kathy is predeceased by both sets of her grandparents and Grannie.
Our family would like to express our sincere thanks to all the doctors, nurses, paramedics and hospital staff that helped Kathy so many times. Thanks also to her homecare workers who took care of her and the dial-a-ride volunteers who helped her so often.
