August 9, 1964 - September 2, 2020
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing into the Heavens of Kathleen (Katie) Ellen McQuigge on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 at approximately 8:30 pm with some family by her side. Katie joins her mother, Brenda Jean McQuigge (predeceased 2016), her father, Allen Ross McQuigge (predeceased 1999), and Kenneth James McQuigge (predeceased 1991). Left to mourn her passing is her sister, Kelly Anne Ouellet (nee McQuigge) and Kathleen’s husband Randy Huber. Kathleen fought a short but courageous battle with “vim and vigour”; however, the cancer eventually won the fight. Her children will continue to keep her memory alive by telling stories and carrying on traditions their mother started. They will visit the places she loved and snuggle her grandchildren as she would have done. Paul Lindsay Derkacz and his wife Sara have two children Emma and Ava, Alan Joseph McQuigge and his wife Tina have five sons and a daughter: Westan, Dustin, Colton, Dalton, Teegan and Krista; Meagan Jean Bedard and her fiancée Fred have Braedon, Gabriella, and Jacob and Steven Derkacz has Mayssen, Kaden and Leighton; Kathleen’s stepdaughter, Melissa Huber has two sons Liam and Lincoln. Kathleen’s full life including a career with Revenue Canada and as an entrepreneur didn’t impede her time spent with all her grandchildren and her memory will be held close in their hearts forever. Kathleen also leaves behind love in the hearts of her nieces, Hillory, Sarah and Chelsea and her nephew Brooks. Her great nieces will cherish the “hot dog slap” and Auntie Katie’s joking ways - Harlee, Brooklyn, Brynleigh, Koewyn, Addison, Taya and her great nephew Kristian. Kathleen is survived by many other adoring family members and friends. She has touched many lives. Following cremation, the family will host a Celebration of Life on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at the family residence in Capreol. In addition to the Celebration of Life, the family will host a celebrational dinner at one of Kathleen’s favourite places, Rocky’s Bar and Grill located at 35 Loonway Road, Capreol, Ontario with a candlelight vigil to follow in the park. Both these events are open to all who wish to join the family and friends of Katie in celebrating her life. Missing you forever.
