Passed away peacefully at home in Sidney, B.C., on May 12, 2024.

Kim was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, on Feb 18, 1963. She is survived by her husband of 35 years Don, son Jared and sister Kerri Styba as well as her mother brother and step father Maureen, Laird and Warren Mochnacz.

Kim remained positive and buoyant to the end despite a life long battle with diabetes that left her with numerous disabling conditions and on dialysis for her last few years.

She loved her dogs and all children, watching the Blue Jays and the Canucks and playing scrabble on the deck in the backyard where she was surrounded by the flowers and birds.

Kim continued to make new friends right up to the end.  She was a beacon of positivity and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

We wish to express our gratitude to all those who helped care for her the last 5 years especially the staff at Royal Jubilee hospital and the care aids and nurses that came to our home.

The date for a celebration of life at the family home will be announced at a later time.

Donations can be made to the JDRF in lieu of flowers.

Condolences may be offered to the family below.

    Dear Don, Jared and Kerri,
    I was so sad to receive the Peninsula Review on Thursday and read of Kim’s passing. Kim was one of the first people I met when I moved to Sidney 23 years ago. She was working at Monk’s, and I had a small business, so I mailed a lot of parcels. Kim was always so helpful, joyful and friendly. Later, she would initiate me meeting Jared, and he would assist me at my booth at the Sidney Market. When I no longer had my business, I would run into Kim around town. She was always quick to greet me with that great smile. In the past few years, living in close proximity, I would see Kim around the neighborhood. Though her health issues were abundant, that was never what she chose to talk about. Instead, she would want to know how I was doing. I always marveled at her strength of spirit, that same great smile was ever present. I will miss running into Kim. She was a bright light in this world. My thoughts are with all of you.

    Dear Maureen and Family ! Truly sorry to see of Kim’s passing. I remember seeing you and her at Childrens Hospital just after her diagnosis. I was taking my x-ray training then. Such a beautiful and sweet girl. Hope you get lots of hugs. Sincerly Jan Shaw Merino
