Katherine “Kathy” Qualizza

May 21, 1961 – June 23, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Kathy, on the afternoon of June 23, 2019. Her father, Bogdan, has taken his angel to sit by his side and watch over us.
Kathy leaves behind Roberto, her loving husband of 36 years, as well as son Alex, daughter Geli (Jordy) and grandson Luca.
Predeceased by sister Radmila, left to mourn her passing are her mother, Mary, sister Olga, nieces Tina (Jesse) and Laura, brother Stevan and brother-in-law Milan; in-laws Lorenzo and Luisa, sisters-in-law Marisa and Sandra (Rob), nephews William (Jessica), Jon and Gordon and grand nephew Nicholas.
Her infectious smile and endearing personality will be sorely missed by her colleagues at SD68 where she had worked since 2002 as well as by numerous friends through her service groups.
Kathy was a caring, loving individual which extended beyond her family to her friends and especially to animals, notably her beloved canine companion, Charlie.
The family wishes to extend their thanks to Dr. M. Kenyon and his trauma team at NRGH.
In lieu of flowers, please donate in Kathy’s memory directly to the Nanaimo SPCA.
A celebration of life will be held at Sands Nanaimo, 1 Newcastle Ave, Nanaimo, on Thursday, July 4, 2019 at 1 pm proceeding a viewing at 12 pm with a reception to follow.
