Kathleen died of Alzheimer’s Disease in Harbour View Haven, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on Wednesday January 3, 2018. She was born to the late Starr Ernest & Olive May (Wentzel) Hutt on November 16, 1926 in Milton, Nova Scotia.

Her greatest achievements have been in the lives of her family and friends. Kathleen’s generous heart filled her home with love, fun, family & friends – there was always room for one more.

Backward, turn backward, O time, in your flight;
Make me a child again, just for tonight!
Mother, come back from that echoless shore;
Take me again in your heart as of yore —
Kiss from my forehead the furrows of care,
Smooth the few silver threads out of my hair,
Over my slumbers your loving watch keep —
Rock me to sleep, mother — rock me to sleep!
– Elizabeth Acker Allan
