THOMPSON, Kathleen “Kay”



May 23, 1931 – March 25, 2022

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Kay at the age of 90. Daughter to the late Frederick and Hilda Jordan of Bristol, England. Sister to the late John (late Betty) and Margaret (late Ted). Kay was predeceased by her beloved husband of 55 years, James Henry (The Reverend Canon). Devoted mother of the late Peter (Margo) and Nicola (James). Proud Grandma of Evan (Paige), Brendan, Liam, Christopher (Amanda), Graeme (Lauren), Josh (Keely) and Joel (Kait). Great grandmother to Blake and Avery Kay. She will be greatly missed by her nieces, nephews, other family, and many friends.

Kay’s life was devoted to her church and family. She used her considerable skills as a seamstress/artisan to create items of beauty for family members and the church. Devoted to her husband, she came to Canada as a young bride, with courage and faith, sharing in his ministry in numerous communities in B.C. and Ontario. Kay had a special way of making anywhere feel like home for her family, extending hospitality and opening her heart and home to many along the way. She dedicated many hours to the work of the Girl Guides (in England), the A.C.W (Anglican Church Women), Bible studies, choir, and all the outreach of the church. She truly was a sister servant to her church family, living her faith with kindness and generosity.

A devoted supporter of her children and grandchildren, Kay was always willing to listen, offer prayers and guidance, and attend countless games, plays, and other activities. Despite health challenges and residence in longterm care for nearly 15 years, Kay remained the cherished heart of the Thompson family, and will be forever beloved by family and friends. 

A sincere thank you to the staff of Mapleview, especially the Tunnel Lake unit, for their care and support. All of your acts of kindness and compassion were much appreciated. 

Due to extenuating circumstances, service details will be announced at a later time.

Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home - Barton & Kiteley Chapel (492 Wellington E., 705-759-2522). Please visit to leave a message of condolence as a keepsake for the family.
