KEIRSTEAD-HANSEN, Kathleen "Kay" Grace Keirstead-Hansen  -  1933-2022

After a battle with Heart Disease and Cancer, Kathleen passed away peacefully with family at her home on August 19, 2022, at the age of 89.

Kathleen Black was born in Memramcook, New Brunswick in March 1933.

She married Stanley Alfred Keirstead on December 28, 1950, and moved to Toronto.

Stan passed away, after 25 happy years of marriage, on November 26, 1976. Much of her career was spent as a health care aide at Rosebank Villa and Orchard Village Nursing homes in Pickering, until her retirement in 1998. 

Left to carry on her memory are her children: Brenda Lee McKinlay (Christopher), Cindy Perks (Derek), Sharon-Ann Morenz (Terry), Bruce Keirstead (Mary-Ellen), and Penny Valentini (Massimo).

She was the proud grandmother of Rick McKinlay (Jody), Late Rebecca McKinlay (Rick), Caileigh Ward (Simon), Emma Galbraith (Ben),
Caitlyn Morenz, Cameron Morenz, Ben Wenckebach, Jonas Keirstead, and Bryan Valentini. She was also the proud Great Grandmother to Hailey and Madison McKinlay, Brianna and Cody Heuper, Amber Lugg, and Maxwell Ward. And finally proud Great Great Grandmother to Jaxon Hueper. 

She loved her gardens and spent many hours tending to them.

Mom enjoyed the wildlife, especially the birds, specifically the cardinal.

For that reason, we are asking that everyone wear a splash of red to honour Mom's beloved cardinal.

Arrangements with McEachnie Funeral Home.

She will be missed.
