Katherine (Kate) Fenwick, age 39, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 29, 2023, in Mississauga. She was born May 10, 1984, to Carl and the late Sandra Fenwick. Cherished oldest sister to Sarah (Nicholas) and Taylor. Beloved Auntie to James and Grace.
Kate graduated with honours from Trent University in 2010 where she established lasting friendships. She loved snowboarding and while on a trip to British Columbia she fell in love with the mountains, the nature, and the way of life. Shortly after this trip, she moved to Nelson, BC and embraced the community, the culture and was proud to call Nelson home for 7 years.
In 2019 Kate returned to Mississauga where she cherished her role as Auntie Kate. Always eager to spend time with James and Grace, she will be missed while building forts, dance parties in the living room and trips to the beach.
Kate was creative and talented, her hobbies included writing, drawing, painting and most recently beading and jewelry making.
Kate loved all people. Free spirited, generous, and always kind, she developed countless relationships in the most unexpected places including parks, coffee shops and on at least one occasion, even roadside. Always compassionate, Kate was a lover and advocate of animals, too, including her dog, Kodiak, and the dozens of cats she had as a girl.
Although shortened, Kate’s time here was meaningful, and she’ll be remembered fondly by the countless number of people she genuinely connected with along the way.
Kate wished not to have a traditional funeral. A celebration will be planned and shared in the future.
