Kathy passed away peacefully at the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre in Regina on Sunday August 9, 2015 in comfort with her children lovingly with her.

She is predeceased by her husband Russell, parents Patrick & Amy (Beatrice) Thorpe, and her beloved granddaughter Jennifer Norman.

Kathleen Rose was born on February 14, 1946 as the first born to Pat and Amy in Richards Hospital in Chichester, England. At five months old, she accompanied her war bride mother to be reunited with her father in Canada. Her brother, Ronald, came along a few years later and they all resided on a farmstead near Westbend, Saskatchewan.

Kathy attended school in the Firefly School District near Westbend, Foam Lake, and finished her grade 12 in Yorkton. She worked in various restaurants, managed the chicken hatchery, and cooked at the Foam Lake Union Hospital. After experiencing some medical problems she gladly became a house wife and valiantly overcame her disabilities to the best of her ability.

Kathleen met the love of her life Russell Wright and was married on April 3, 1965; and resided in Foam Lake for 44 years. Together they raised family of three girls and one boy; Shannon, Pamela, Sheri and Patrick.

Kathy was most known to always be up for a game of cards, sitting crocheting or knitting, plus her delicious homemade baking and goodies. There was always a hearty meal prepared or a pot of coffee on the go, and she was always up for some good chats with company who stopped by.

A couple of her favorite memories were their trip to Las Vegas with her brother Ron and wife Darlene; and their trip to Minot with good friends Bob and Elaine Beattie. There was always a light in her eyes and a laughter to her voice when she reminisced about these excursions.

Russell and Kathleen had a cabin at Fishing Lake where they spent many summers with all the family no matter how it grew or changed plus so many dear friends that would drop in for a

visit or a stay. Many hours were also spent on their boat together fishing which offered up many open fish fries at the cabin. She enjoyed her evening golf cart rides down to the boat launch with her loving husband to watch the boats for hours and her grandchildren having their nightly swim.

She was known for her deliciously fabulous grand feasts prepared for all family at her place during every holiday. There was always an extra plate for anyone who happened to come along so they could join in and very often invited and hosted those who did not have the good fortune of spending a holiday with their own families.

Kathy moved to Regina in 2009 shortly after she began Hemodialysis. For the rest of her days, she resided in a Senior's Housing Complex where she had a lot of fun and got to know many very good friends. She spent her final days in Wascana Rehabilitation's Long Term Care where she again quickly befriended many in a short time.

Many are left who will miss her dearly; whether family, friend, or acquaintance.

Kathleen is survived by her brother Ron Thorpe (Darlene); daughter Shannon Wright, children Curtis Skolney (Janine) and son Michael; Crystal Verot (Dan) and daughter Kylee, Calyne Skolney; daughter Pamela Norman (Bernie), children Ashley Stinka (Bruce), Justin, great granddaughter Skylee; daughter Sheri Wright, children Christina and son Aiden, daughter Erika and son Loki, Matthew and Troy; and son Patrick (Nicole) and children Russel and Breeanna; plus numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews; and many close friends.
