Kathryn Petrovitch



It is with great sorrow that our family announces the passing of Kathryn Leslie Petrovitch who left us too early on Saturday, October 24, 2015, at the age of sixty-three.

Born September 8, 1952, to her parents Sandy and Pauline Petrovitch, Kathy leaves to mourn her mother, Pauline and her sister and brother-in-law, Judi and Bruce Weaver. She was predeceased by her father only the month before. She also leaves her dearest loves, her niece, Dawn Weaver (Peter McCoy) of Airdrie, Alberta, and her nephew, Byron Weaver (Lynn) of Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia. She was a special “Auntie Kathy” to her great-nephew, Cale Bonn of Airdrie, and her great-niece, Jiya Weaver of Shawnigan Lake and was just getting to know her newest niece and nephew, Makayla and Zachery McCoy, also of Airdrie. Kathy also leaves to mourn aunts and cousins who kept by her side.

Kathy was a teacher in Brooks and Grande Cache for a number of years, but returned to Edmonton where she continued to reside until her passing. She enjoyed her time travelling the world, skiing in Switzerland, and scuba diving in the Caribbean during her years as a travel agent and in later years worked at Telus and most recently at Skyway Canada. She was an avid golfer, a curler and folk club fan and these activities filled her days until poor health forced her to stop. During these varied careers and activities, Kathy gained many life-long friends who remained supportive and by her side until her passing.

Her family wishes to thank Dr. Katia Tonkin and the kindnesses of those at the Cross Cancer Institute and Dr. Robert Sedlak and nurses in Unit 22 at the Leduc General Hospital for the care and compassion they gave her prior to her passing.

A gathering of family and friends will be held at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 10011 – 114 Street, Edmonton on Monday, November 2, 2015 at 1:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers the family wishes that donations be made in her name to the Canadian Cancer Society, Suite 201, 9452 51 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta, T6E 5A6, with special appreciation to the Volunteer Driver Program.

In Loving Memory of
Kathryn Petrovitch
