It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dearly loved wife, mother, sister and friend, Leslie KIM Veino on 26 September 2023 after a long illness. Kim died peacefully at home. Kim was born in 1960 in Glace Bay, NS and eventually settled in Halifax. She is predeceased by her mother Gloria MacLeod (nee Townsend) and father James McIntyre and Step-Father Donald MacLeod. She has 3 siblings of whom she was very fond; Greg MacLeod (Susan), Karen Gaudet (Brian Bayne) and Kathleen MacLeod (David Medjuck). Her immediate family would like to acknowledge the tremendous care and support of Karen and Kathleen over the course of her illness. Kim developed a relationship with two other siblings Cathy Naseiro and Monty McIntyre discovered later in life. To Kim family was a blessing. Kim married her life partner and soul mate Paul Veino in 1988. They enjoyed a wonderful relationship and raised two beautiful boys; Cory and Joshua (Miriam Behman). Her boys were her greatest joy and Kim left the conventional workforce in 1992 to raise her sons. She is so proud of the men they have become. Kim graduated from NSIT in the early 80s after completing a certificate in Community Services, and later completed a degree in Social Work at Dalhousie University. She worked tirelessly in a number of jobs over her life, most recently as a Volunteer Coordinator at the Canadian Cancer Society and as an educator at ISANs and Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine. Kim and Paul were avid music fans and spent much of their summers attending music festivals where they met a great number of friends to compliment Kim’s significant friend count outside that scene. Kim was loved by all for her caring and friendly nature. In addition to her immediate family, Kim is also survived by her beloved father-in-law Ed Veino, numerous nieces, nephews, grand nieces/nephew and God children. She will be missed by all. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Oncologists, Drs. Ramjeesingh, Sheridan and nurse Shelby for their care over the past couple of years, and more recently the staff of the Palliative Care Team and associated resources. A special mention and gratitude to Palliative Care RN and friend to Kim, Monica Flynn for her excellent care, tireless support and coordination of resources. In view of Kim’s significant contribution to the education of medical students over the course of her employ, Kim has donated her body to the Human Body Donation Program at Dalhousie University to further this goal. The family would ask in lieu of flowers that donation be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice. A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
