  1. A VERY good friend. One in a billion. Leaving an emptiness that will NEVER be filled again. Gratitude for allowing me to know you Kathy. Until we meet again xxxooo.

  2. Kathleen was a kind and beautiful friend I met in the good old days in Otterburn, Quebec.
    Her fantastic Mom, Dad, and siblings were always so generous and full of fun. You really had to be there to share in the laughter.
    My thoughts are with each of you. May the days ahead be filled with love and kindness.

  6. I was gutted this week when I heard this news. I met Kathy 1998. We both worked in small option homes in Dartmouth. We seemed to follow the same Relief Work circuit and often ended up working weekends in homes we weren’t always up to speed on but Kathy jumped right in and I followed her lead. She was to me and to alot of my colleagues, our ‘Work Mom’. She made you feel special without using words. I was lost and broken at the time. My dad had passed 2 years earlier, I just moved to the city and had got involved in the worst relationship. Kathy was there it seemed when I needed someone in my corner most. She just seemed to know. Kathy has loved and touched so many people in such a special way. The world has lost a true Gem. Rest easy Kathy. My heart will always remember you. Watch over your girls who will miss you so so much.

  7. I worked with Kathy many years ago at RRSS(group homes) in Dartmouth NS. She was always a kind and gentle presence. My deepest condolences.

  8. Our sympathies go out to both the Brandy and Heacock families.xxx

  9. Rachel and Sarah my condolences to you and your family at this time. I will always cherish your mothers friendship always remember her generous spirit, beautiful smile and twinkle in her eye. We spent time together over lunches ,dinners and coffee with friends solving the worlds problems and having lots of laughs. She loved her family, loved the many travels with you and always shared this love with her many friends. My thoughts and heart are with you today.

  10. Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your mom. I knew your mom for many years. Her compassion for her clients and coworkers was second to none. Your mom cast a long shadow, she will be missed by so many.

  14. I was fortunate to have met Kathleen 42 y ago through my friendship with her dear brother, Bill Brady and sister-in- law, Pearl. Kathleen’s warm heart, good humour and inclusive nature drew me to her immediately. I always looked forward to being enveloped by her warm embrace and the inevitable sharing of laughter at the many family gatherings that Bill and Pearl held in their home and to which I was so kindly included. Kathleen’s loving hugs expressed her inclusive philosophy which so clearly stated, “A friend of her family member is a friend of mine”. Such inclusivity was also so kindly extended when she met my partner Vaughn. Luckily for us then we were counted in as one of the recipients of her wonderful, fun Christmas email letters which were full of entertaining stories of loving times spent mainly with the pride of her life, Rachel and Sarah and their loved ones.
    Kathleen was taken too soon. I was so looking forward to sharing laughter over a tea on a more frequent basis with her move back to Edmonton.
    My heart aches for the entire extended Brady family who have lost a beloved sister and Aunt and to Sarah, Rachel who have lost a loving mother and Grandmother and of course to her many dear friends as well.
    May all the wonderful memories you hold in your hearts of your lovely Kathleen be of comfort to you at this sad time.

    Vaughn Foster

  15. My sincere condolences go out to Kathy’s family. In the coming days may you find peace, and comfort.

    I first met Kathy in 2007 and worked with her for 2 years at a small options home in Dartmouth. It seemed that we were paired together for many of my shifts. Kathy showed a compassion for all people and was very supportive and always willing to help however she could . She spoke very fondly of the accomplishments of her daughters and granddaughters – all were a great source of pride.

    Kathy will be greatly missed

  16. My deepest sympathy for Rachel, Sarah and their families. I will always remember Kathy for her kindness, wisdom, generosity, laughter and integrity.

  17. I am sad to hear of Kathy’s passing. She was a considerate and wonderful person. I knew Kathy for many years as we were on committees together. My condolences to her family and all who knew her.

  18. Missing you, dear Kathy…
    You made a huge impact on me,
    and so many others, too.
    Recalling us thinking, one day, we would
    take a trip to L’Anse-aux-Meadows!
    Love you, Friend-Kathy!
    Val Gillis
    P.S. Praying I’ll see you again,
    in the next realm, Kath!
