August 25, 2020

Kathleen Mary Gilders (Kay), beloved wife of Cyril James Gilders (Jim) passed away peacefully at her Calgary home on Tuesday, August 25 at the age of 88.

Kay was born in Hazelton, BC to the late Charles John Owen Toombs and Gladys Maud Louise Line.

She is survived by her loving husband Jim, her three sons Allan (Diane), John, and Michael (Dana); her grandchildren, James (Morgan), Josh, Joel, Tonia (Simon), Serena (Fraser), Mackenzie and Jackson, and great-grandchildren Rowan, Declan, Kinley, Elijah, Noah and Micah.

Kay loved life and enjoyed all of the challenges along the way.

With her husband Jim, they sailed the Pacific West Coast for 30 years, travelling from Alaska to southern Mexico. Kay loved tennis, golf,
sailing, and skiing, performing each activity with a smooth grace that was a pleasure to watch.

Selflessly helping her friends and family, Kay always put others before herself. Most importantly, she was a steadfast and loving partner to Jim as well as a proud and supportive mother to her sons. She loved her family above all else.

She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Due to COVID restrictions, Kay’s Memorial Service will be by invitation.
