With sadness we mourn the loss of our mother, grandmother and friend.
Kathleen was born in Plymouth, England. She moved to Canada when she was six. The family first settled in Cloverdale, BC on a farm with her grandfather Keilbach. Her grandfather passed away a few years later. The depression came and her father, not being a farmer, moved the family to Prince Rupert when Kathleen was14 years old.
Kathleen graduated from King Edward High School and went on to do bookeeping for various companies. On April 17, 1940 Kathleen married Edwin Lindseth. Two sons were born: John Neal and Patrick.
In 1952 Edwin & Roy Boychuk become the proud owners of Bytown Diesel machine shop. Kathleen then became the bookkeeper for the business. In 1960 Edwin and Kathleen became owners until it was sold to their sons in 1980 and they moved to Victoria.
Kathleen was very involved in the community in many different activities, she never had any daughters but was a girl guide leader until she was 60 years old.In 1998 Kathleen returned to the north and from 2000 has resided in Terrace with her son Neal.
