    • Thanks Bonnie and Ivan-we indeed have many memories of the Jordan clan as our paths crossed over the years. I especially remember the time you came to Alberta and camped out with us in Lacombe and went to the Ponoka Stampeded and Kathy and Larry hosted us at their home for brunch.

  10. We will all miss Kathy. I don’t think she ever had someone who disliked her, and that is from her classmates from the Calgary General Hospital where she graduated from in 1963. No one is perfect but love always makes it easier and Kathy had a lot to give. With love from Prue and George Watts.

  13. With condolences to Kathy’s family. She was a good friend through nursing school. Colleen Gould(Little)

  14. Kathy’s sister, Judy is our sister-in-law, and we had the pleasure of getting to know Kathy through her. Kathy’s smile and the mischievous twinkle in her eyes made each time we saw her, a special occasion. As we grow older, we’ve learned that those we love and cherish are really just on loan to us. When they leave us, they give us their spirit and our memories to hold onto.
    Blessings to all the Medd family and those who hold Kathy dear.
    Dennis and Patricia Evans, Naramata
