With pronounced sadness and much love we say farewell to our amazing mother and grandmother, Victoria (Vikki) Kinash who passed away suddenly on August 1, 2020. She will forever be remembered by her children, Robert, Larry and Jim, her three beloved grandchildren, Scott, Sarah and Cole, sister Judy, along with many relatives and life long friends. Predeceased by her husband John of 47 years, 3 sisters and brother, and later partner Allan of 12 years.
Vikki deeply loved her grandchildren and was both a role model and best friend. She loved all animals, but none more than her cat Cocoa, and Husky dog Whiskey. She was truly at home in nature, where she often walked her dog or picked berries. Whether ice skating when she was growing up, or later golfing, curling, playing cards or supporting her sons’ hockey teams, she never lacked passion and always embraced competition. Often seen with her hair back in a ponytail ready to greet the day, she had an unmatched youthful spirit that was loved by all. Her unending selflessness, warmth, sense of humour, kindness and inspiration will be impossible to replace and she will be forever in our hearts.
