It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, daughter and sister, Karla Dawn Colp, at home in Beach Meadows on January 10, 2021.
Born in Liverpool, Karla was the youngest daughter of Marilee (Mitchell) Weagle (Ross Levy) and the late Murdock Weagle.
Karla had boundless energy and an unmatched zest for life. She constantly put her entire heart into everything she did. Of her many passions, cooking was at the top of her list. As a teenager in Barrington, she’d come home from school at lunch to cook for her entire family. This is what initiated her love of cooking. She also wholeheartedly enjoyed her first official job as a baker at the Liverpool Save Easy. Her fond experiences of these times made her blossom into an extremely well-known home cook and baker. She went on to be both an incredible cook and bartender for 15 years at the Liverpool Landing, where so many people shared great times and made lifelong memories. After it burned down in 1997, she briefly worked at the Mersey Hotel Grill but then left to start her next endeavor – becoming the best mother her daughter Kennedy could ever ask for. In 2000, she decided to make her own wedding cake, marking the start of her specialty cake career that lasted 18 years. As if that wasn’t enough, she also catered countless weddings, birthdays, community and work events and also did a large portion of the serving herself. Of course, she always appreciated the help of her “Dream Team” whenever she needed a hand.
Karla also worked tirelessly as a housekeeper for many years, looking after the Emmanuel United Church in Beach Meadows along with the Seaside Centre and Community Hall. Through this work, she became acquainted with a number of people, many of them elderly and in need of companionship which she so graciously provided.
She had a great love for photography and by sharing her iconic snapshots, she gave friends and family the opportunity to see how wonderful the world was through her eyes. Her pictures helped us appreciate the beauty in the simplest things, like a sunrise over the ocean or waves crashing on the foggy shore.
Another one of her favourite pastimes was scouring the shoreline of her favourite beaches for sea glass. She had a surprising amount of knowledge of all the different colours, shades and rarities of each piece. Karla loved the therapeutic combination of sunshine, soothing wave sounds and simply being in the present moment.
Karla had no problem consistently expressing her authentic self. Her vibrancy, goofiness and carefree nature would immediately light up any room. She loved spontaneous road trips with her family, lunch dates, skating and playing dress up at Frenchy’s from time to time. She even knew how to turn a simple grocery store trip into a comedy act.
Perhaps, above all, Karla had one of the most selfless souls out there. Whether you needed a helping hand, advice, a shoulder to cry on or even just a nice belly laugh; she would drop everything no matter who you were. Whenever she went on vacation to her favourite place – Cuba – she’d pack her suitcase to the brim with necessities and distribute them to families in need. Complete and unabashed kindness was her authenticity and is now her legacy.
Besides her mother, Marilee, Karla is survived by her devoted husband Kendell, her daughter Kennedy, sister Karen George and her children Ashley and Tanner, her brothers Kris Weagle (Theresa) and Kevin Weagle (Karen) and his children Cody Whalen and Aaron Weagle.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool, NS. A private family service will be held at a later date. No flowers, donations may be made to Queens General Hospital Foundation, Queens County Branch VON, or to Palliative Care Initiatives. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com
Special thanks to Dr. Blackadar, Dr. Morash, Dr. Gowan, and the nurses of VON, Halifax Cancer Centre, Palliative Care and Queens General Hospital for their compassionate care.

Kandace and Claude
I have known Karla and Karen since Gorham school. We were in Primary or grade one and Karen grade two or three. We went through middle and high schools together. During those years there were a “gang” of us that had a home away from home at Rolies barn called “The Camp” for many years. Eventually we all went down our separate roads. It was heartbreaking to hear of Karla’s passing and another one of our gang has left too early.
Karla may you fly to the star that was dedicated to you over Christmas and beyond!! To Karen, Kennedy and Kendell and the rest of your families may your souls begin to heal and tears turn from grief to joy sooner than later.

When Karla was a young girl in school, she was a caring, loving, giving young lady with a true zest for life. Her attitudes and infectious smile brightened the entire room. It was obvious, even back then, that she would leave many positive impressions on this Earth and she certainly did. Our deepest sympathies to the families. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Kendall and Kennedy, Steve and I are heart broken to have heard this news. Somehow I kept denying that this would happen and stayed positive to the end. I cannot imagine walking past your house without that adorable lady in the short shorts working in the garden. Perhaps we will need to make a scarecrow of her this summer. Her spirit is boundless and I feel she will always be a part of our community, watching over all of us and listening to all our fears and complaints. Please know that we are sending you our most heart felt prayers and loving thoughts.

I remember the first time I met Karla. It was the summer after we moved to Liverpool and Kennedy had invited Victoria to her birthday party which they held at Beach Meadows beach. And I remember thinking she organized most amazing parties! I can remember a subsequent one at the Beach Meadows Community Hall and I thought holy moly this woman is amazing! And shortly before we moved to the Valley, she prepared the Christmas dinner that Chandlers put on for the local clergy and their spouses. She certainly had a talent there too.
On behalf of Steve and I and our girls, our most sincere condolences on your great loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. ❤️❤️

Dear Kendell and Kennedy,
I am deeply saddened by the news of Karla’s passing. Wishing you peace to bring you comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. Karla was a gift from heaven.
After 30 years in Ontario, my family and I moved back home in 2019. One of the first people we ran into was Karla getting an ice cream at the Dairy Treat in Hunts Point. We only chatted for a few minutes but it was if we were back sitting at the pub as she turned me onto B52 shooters. We shared a laugh and said we should get together some time. Then COVID hit and the world got turned upside down. I was shocked when I heard of her death. She was a happy, smiling lady the last time I saw her and how I will always remember her. My condolences to her family and prayers for the passage of time to heal your loss. She will be missed.
Brad and Linda MacLeod, Becky and Sarah

The beautiful tribute and video and numerous condolences speak loudly. She lives on within the memories of all who were lucky enough to cross paths with her.

Her photographs reflect her beauty & love of nature and deep love for her family. She is with you always. Hugs help.
