DICKIE, Kathleen (nee McCrudden) 1910 - 2009 The family of Kathleen Dickie sadly announces the death of their mother, grandmother and great-grandmother at Forest Grove Care Center in Calgary, Alberta on Thursday, November 12th. Born and raised in Montreal, Kay moved to Calgary, at the age of eighty, to be closer to immediate family. The eldest of eight children born to John and Hellen McCrudden, Kathleen remained close to all her siblings and their families throughout her life. The birth of her two great-grandchildren in 2005 and 2006 were special events that brought her great joy. Kay will be lovingly remembered by her son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Judy Dickie, grandchildren, Kimberley (Grant) MacEachern and Craig (Tracy) Dickie and great-grandchildren, Alexis and Sean Dickie, all of Calgary; sisters, Geraldine Sheridan of Oakville, Ontario and Hazel Gareau of Montreal, Quebec; sister-in-law, Olivia McCrudden of St Eustache, Quebec as well as by numerous nieces and nephews who held Auntie Kay in high regard. Kathleen was predeceased by her husband, William, in 1981, and by her elder son, William Ross, in 1986. She will be laid to rest with her husband at Mount Royal Cemetery.
