Parfitt KimPARFITT, Kim Anne   -  May 21, 1958 - November 6, 2022

Passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on November 6, 2022, at the age of 64.

Kim was a pillar of strength in her family and community as well as a champion for change, advocating to improve the rights and health of women in Canada.

Kim had a brilliant wit with a heart-warming laugh.

She had a deep reverence for art, literature, and singing, with a sense of imagination and adventure, which she instilled in her children.

Her home was always a safe, welcoming place filled with unconditional love and support for her children and many who called Kim their second mother. 

Beloved wife of Brian Hogel.

Loving mother of Shannon Brown (Kelly), Jesse Brown, Jasmine Brown-Alves (Rui), and Lindsay Watson (Nicole).

Adored grandmother of Diago, Angelina, Alexandria, and Lucas. Dearly loved and missed sister of Debbie Ogden (Norman). Kim will be greatly missed by her large extended family and many friends.

The family would like to express appreciation and thanks that if there are any wishes for memorial donations, they are made to the Canadian Association for Porphyria.

A Private Family Graveside service will be held at Oshawa Union Cemetery.
