Kathy was born and raised in North Western Ontario. Rainy River, Red Lake and Kenora were her stomping grounds. Kathy’s life, in her younger, braver years involved many life endangering activities in the woods in and around Red Lake! She looked up to her oldest brother and lived with her sister and cousins for some time. Kathy started her nursing training in Ontario then worked as a nurse in Vancouver. She met Jimmie James, they married and had one son, Ryan. Sadly, the union did not last and after their divorce, Kathy moved to Calgary where she raised Ryan with love and focus. They made a life in Calgary until Ryan convinced her to move to Vancouver Island. She retired there after a 40 year career in nursing. Kathy followed her heart to Northern BC to be near her grandchildren before returning to Alberta and living her final years with family and friends.
