KUHN, Kathryn (Kathy) Ann   



Kathryn (Kathy) Kuhn (nee Dixon) died peacefully after an uncomfortable coexistence with cancer on January 11, 2022.   

Kathy was born in Calgary and grew up in Halifax and Toronto. She attended Queens University where she earned a registered nursing degree. She met Clay, who was the love of her life, at a Presbyterian Youth Conference in Indiana. She married Clay in Calgary in 1987. They lived in Pasadena, California and Vancouver, BC while Clay finished his schooling. They moved to Nova Scotia where they had two awesome children, Sarah and Elias. Kathy, ever the caregiver was proud to serve the communities of Tatamagouche, Port Alberni, and the Bow Valley as a nurse. Her focus in community care, long term care, and palliative care allowed her to help both patients and their families during their most difficult times of their lives.   

  Kathy was known for her kindness, hospitality, giggle, and connecting with strangers who often became friends and family. She served as a Sunday School teacher and as Clay’s partner in ministry. Her family takes comfort in knowing that she at peace with Christ now.   

  An avid knitter, Kathy’s wonderful creations have been worn on children and adults across North America and the world. To receive a Kathy sweater was like receiving a hug and a gift of love.   

 Kathy is survived by her husband Clay, children Sarah (Brian) and Elias, mother Margaret, sister Donna (Dean), brother Duncan (Tami) along with numerous family and friends. She is predeceased by her father, George.
