Obituary for Kathy Barnum

Family and friends are mourning Kathy's sudden loss. Many are comforted in knowing that she is in the presence of her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as she claimed the Bible's promise that "whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:15)

Kathy (Burlie), her sister Marnie, brother Doug. and half -sisters Pat and Renie were born in Edmonton where they lived during their early years before moving to Vancouver. Kathy moved to Gibsons in 1979, where she was an active member of the Sunshine Coast community. She served as a mental health advocate with the B.C. Schizophrenia Society and a leader with the Girl Guides of Canada. For the last eleven years, Kathy enjoyed her job as the crossing guard at Gibsons Elementary School, where students and community members described her as friendly, smiling, cheerful, helpful, caring, and kind. She blessed her friends at Calvary Baptist Church with her beautiful voice and had joined several local singing groups. She enjoyed knitting, sewing, crochet, and quilting.

Kathy leaves behind Ernie, her husband of forty yeas, and four children: Daniel and his wife Maria with her twin grandsons Samuel and Maxwell in Salmon Arm', Samuel and his wife Crystal with her granddaughter Catherine in Vancouver, daughter Rebekah, and her husband Peter Dooley with her grandson Jeremiah in Burnaby, and daughter Deborah in Gibsons. Kathy is also survived by her sister Marnie, nephews Keith and Doug, niece Mandy, and great-niece Averleigh.

A celebration of Kathy's life will be held at Camp Sunrise, Langdale, on Saturday January 4th, at 1:30.

A reception will follow. Instead of flowers, please send any donations to B.C. Schizophrenia Society, Sunshine Coast Branch, Box 861, Gibsons, B.C. V0N 1V0 or B.C. Cancer Agency, 600 W. 10th Ave., Vancouver B.C. V5Z 4E6
