KIRBY: Kimberly Lynn

Posted by on June 21, 2016

Peacefully, surrounded by her family at Bluewater Health on Friday, June 17, 2016, Kimberly Lynn (Nee Feehan) Kirby of Camlachie, took her last breath at 10:00 p.m. at the age of 58, after a 15 month battle with breast cancer. Kim leaves behind her husband and best friend John Kirby, her daughters Tahna (Ian Thompson), Shelby and her sons Shane and Joey (Gabby Crews). Also survived by her mother Eileen Feehan, sisters Deb Russell (Geoff), Joanne Willert (Jerry) and brother Kevin (Jackie Gorman). Predeceased by her father Joseph Feehan. Cherished by her best friends Marg Wright (Tom), Pauline Higgins (Rick Douglas) and Sharon O’donnell (Tim). She will be greatly missed by her four legged fur friends Chloe and Randi. Kim was born on June 2, 1958 in Hamilton, ON. She worked at Dow chemical for 33 years. She started her career in the warehouse and blazed the way for women in nontraditional jobs. She firmly believed “if you take the money, you gotta do the job.” Kim finished her career in the maintenance department, as a planner and scheduler in 2009. She led a very active life, and at the age of 50 she completed the 10K “Bridge Run.” Kim was an exercise fanatic; she would work out before she went to work in the morning. After she retired she could often be seen at least twice a day walking the legs off of her two beloved terriers, Zoe and Chloe, through the village of Camlachie. One of her favourite notes pinned to the corkboard in her kitchen says “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.” We are very grateful to all the friends, family and neighbours that helped us through this journey. You are all truly, very special! The family wishes to thank Dr. Maddison, Dr. Trish, and the nurse’s on palliative care, Danielle, Amanda and Courtney, you are angels. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be held at STOKE’S INLAND BAR & GRILL, 1202 Lambton Mall Road, Sarnia on Sunday, June 26, 2016 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. A private graveside service with family and friends will be held at Lakeview Cemetery. Sympathy may be expressed through donations to Bluewater Health Palliative Care or St. Joseph’s Hospice (cheques only at the funeral home please).
