It is with great sadness we announce the sudden and peaceful passing of Kathleen Giesinger on January 13, 2021.

Left to cherish her memory is her loving husband Norm, daughter Lisa (Shawn), sister Eva (Brian) and brother’s Richard and Stan, brother in law Gary, and her nieces and nephew.

Kathy was a generous and compassionate person loved by all who knew her. She shared an unconditional love for her fur babies and grand puppies. Words cannot describe how much she will be missed however we will take comfort in knowing she has been reunited with her sister Rita.

As per Kathy’s request, there is no funeral planned. In lieu of flowers the family has asked that donations can be made towards any one of the local pet rescue societies such as AARC’s or SCARS, Children’s Wish Foundation of Alberta, or the Cancer Society of Alberta.

  6. Dear Lisa and Norm,

    I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Kathy’s passing. She was such a bubbly, energetic and kind soul. I am so glad to have had recent phone chats with her and texts, the last being Christmas day. May all of the happy memories comfort you both at this terribly difficult time. I will always picture her out puttering in her garden. I am sure she is doing just that in heaven, with her dearly loved sister Rita at her side. Rest in peace Kathy, my dear friend. Until we meet again, and you can show me all the latest gardening tips.

  7. My sincere condolences for your families loss. My Dad always thought of Kathy as another daughter and he will certainly find her in heaven.
    Much love and prayers in this difficult time.

  14. I know this is late but I am just learning of this loss.
    My sincerest condolences to Lisa, family, friends and those that felt the heartbreak of her sudden passing.

    Lisa and I were teammates many moons ago. The time span in which I had the blessing of knowing Lisa and Kathy was shorr, yet I have fond memories of laughter and genuine kindness.

    Through our lives so many people cross our paths, yet so few of them make profound impacts like Kathy had for me (and most likely most people who knew her). I was too young to describe it back then, however now that I’ve had a few decades of adulting, I understand why.

    Kathy had a contagious kindered energy; her loving, friendly spirit and welcoming smile would make all those in her presence feel very important and loved.

    There were so many things to laugh about when spending time with the Giesinger’s. One of my first detailed memories was when I began asking Mrs. Gies—and with an open heart, Kathy said “oh hun, it’s Kathy,” implying equal respect despite age differences and that I was a visitor in their home.

    Another time I recall her saying something to the effect of “oh girl” I gotcha and will “teach you how to do you hair” that way.

    Kathy, thank you for the loving kindness you gave to so many in this world. I have wonderful, happy memories that will forever be etched in my heart.
