Kathryn Lisa Best

Best, Kathryn Lisa


After a brave and hard fought battle, Kathryn Lisa Best passed peacefully into eternal life on Monday, January 3rd, 2022.  She was a beloved mother to Kingston and leaves behind her mother Grace (nee Mariuz) brother Stephen (Marissa) and sister Diana. Doting Zia to Aria and Olivia. Predeceased by her father, Hayward (2004). Family meant everything to Kathryn and she was the consummate host where all would gather to eat her delicious lasagna and have impromptu kitchen dance parties. She was an avid reader who enjoyed a good book on her patio surrounded by her beautiful garden. Kathryn never hesitated to help a friend in need, always there in a heartbeat with no questions asked. A warrior until the very end and an inspiration to her family, her friends, and her colleagues. Her kind, selfless heart extends to her teaching community where she was a devoted and respected teacher for over 20 years with the LDCSB.  A heartfelt thanks to Dr Hahn and the oncology staff at LHSC for their outstanding care for Kathryn in her final years of life.  Cremation has taken place. Visitors are welcome to John T. Donohue Funeral Home on Sunday, January 9th, from 2:00 to 4:00 o’clock. (1/2 hour increments).
