Obituary of Katherine Strype (nee Leigh)

It is with extreme sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved mother Katherine Strype (nee Leigh) on October 1st 2020. A loving mother to Kevin and Sarah Strype. An amazing wife to retired fire captain, Glen Strype. Loving daughter to Robert and Jean Leigh; sister to Ken (Launa) and Doug (Carol); aunt to Nathan and Sophie. She was a woman full of talent, advice, love, and passion. Anyone who knew her, knew how she would do anything she could to help when needed. She was sarah’s rock when she was sick with lupus. She was deeply admired and loved by those who surrounded her and she always knew what to say. She was the definition of an amazing mother.


Death is tough and one this painful takes so much time to come to terms with. Thank you all so much for reaching out and sending your prayers and love. It is appreciated more than words can describe, right now. 


“She’s in the sun, the wind, the rain, she’s in the air you breathe with every breath you take. She sings a song of hope and cheer, there’s no more pain, no more fear. You’ll see her in the clouds above, hear her whisper words of love, you’ll be together before long, until then listen for her song in the sun, the wind, the rain, in the air you breathe with every breath you take”


Katherine you were taken from us way too soon. We already miss you more then we could ever express. We hope you are in a better place and know that we love you now and will love you forever. 


The celebration of life is to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Lupus Canada. A foundation that was near and dear to Katherine and her family.


Rest In Peace Katherine


We love you with buckets and buckets of love.

Celebration of Life to be determined.
