Kathy Gunderson

24 Dec 1946 – 6 Apr 2015

Kathy Gunderson left us quietly on Monday 6 April 15 and is now in a place of peace.  Kathy was well loved in the Salt Spring Island community. She was known for her gentleness and was kind-hearted to all she encountered.  She was always looking out for the well-being of others and had a special gift of giving, often thinking of others before herself.  She was a joy to be around and mischievous as well. She loved to sing and dance and was a member at times of Viva Voce as well as Salt Spring Singers during her time on-island. She was also active with the Zen meditation sangha.

Kathy is survived by her two sons Cameron and Shane and also by her father Carl in Winnipeg, and her brothers Ron of Nanaimo, Bob of Osoyoos, Mitch of Winnipeg and Gary of Surrey.

She was loved by many and will be dearly missed. We know she is in a better place and we are honoured to have called her “friend”.

There will be a celebration of Kathy’s life on April 19th at 11:00 am at 266 Don Ore Road. All are welcome to celebrate and honour Kathy.
