After a long and inspirational battle with cancer, Kelly passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family. Daughter of Germaine and the late Hugh Wilson.

The family would like to thank all of their friends for their tireless support. In particular, they would like to thank the incredible nurses, doctors and support workers who walked beside them every step of the journey.

Karen SkuceI am an old high school friend of Kelly's and was also at Western with Kelly. I am so sorry to hear about her struggle and her passing. My heart goes out to her family. She was incredibly accomplished and that started in high school...she seemed to win at everything! I have a great photo of Kelly, our friend Diane and I on a school dress up day that I will dig up and try and forward to you. It shows how much fun we had back in those days. I have some very fond memories of Kelly that I will hold onto dearly. I can only imagine how difficult this loss is for you (her family) heart is with you. Karen Skuce
Sharon and Jim McMinnI met Kelly on our first day at Western. We lived across the hall from each other at Delaware and later, lived together in second and third years. Throughout those years, we had a ton of fun. I was honoured to be one of her bridesmaids when Dave and Kelly were married on Reading Week in 1984. Kelly was always a bright light. She excelled at everything she did. Her sense of humour and dry wit enlightened any conversation. She was a dear friend. She loved Dave deeply -- her 'rock' throughout her challenging cancer journey. They were indeed soul mates. She was so proud of Robyn and Kailey. Kelly will continue to live on in our hearts and minds and through our cherished memories of her. With heartfelt and deepest condolences at this very sad time. Dave, Robyn and Kailey you are in our prayers. God Bless You.

I think I am not the only one who was touched by Kelly's zest for life and love for God and family. It was very evident to me when she read at the masses, how devout she was. . There is a beautiful angel up in heaven and she is surrounded by pure love. May you find peace and comfort at this sad time.
