Kathleen (Kay) Etta Thompson (Pettigrew)

September 15, 2015 - May 27, 2015


In the early morning hours of Wednesday, May 27, 2015, KATHLEEN ETTA THOMPSON (Pettigrew) passed away at the F. W. Green Memorial Home in Cranbrook, BC at the age of 88 years.  Kay was born on September 15, 1926 in Bass River, Nova Scotia and was one of five siblings.  In her younger years she  resided with her family in Upper Economy on the banks of the Bay of Fundy.  In the early 1950’s she met and married the love of her life, Claude Thompson.  Shortly thereafter they travelled across Canada to BC and arrived in Cranbrook where Claude had already bought a piece of property and set up residence in the Jim Smith Lake area. 

Kay’s greatest passions were her family and many friends of which the front door was always open for a cup of tea, a warm meal and a helping hand if needed.  Kay was a great and compassionate animal lover and she adored and cherished the many cats and dogs that came across her path in life.  Kay also loved the work she did as a camp cook, tree planter in Cranbrook and also the work she did at a christmas tree farm in Cranbrook. In her spare time she loved to take pictures, sit and work on her jigsaw puzzles, as was as making homemade jewelry, collecting stamps and with her friends and collecting coins.

Kay leaves her family to cherish her memory; Dale (Rita Bohme) Thompson, Lee (Judy)  Thompson and her grandchildren; Shanna Bosch, Brenda Thompson (Mike Anderson), Amber Thompson (Michael Yawney), Danielle Thompson and Andrea Thompson (Stanley) Shawn.  Kay also leaves behind four great grandchildren; Jaydon Anderson, Benjamin  Stanley, Patton Bosch and Dylan Bosch.  She also leaves her one remaining sibling Bobby Pettigrew of Nova Scotia to mourn her loss.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2015 at 1:00 pm at Westlawn Cemetery in Cranbrook for all those who wish to attend.  A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, July 4, 2015 at 1:00 pm at the United Church Hall, 2 – 12th Ave. S., Cranbrook.
