July 20, 1990 - July 8, 2018
Caitlin Kilgannon, a beautiful young soul, left this earthly life late in the evening of Sunday, July 8, 2018, at the age of 27. She was bright, funny, creative and thoughtful. Her spirit was as glorious as her smile and lives on in our hearts and minds. Her body is now at peace. Caitlin will be powerfully remembered and missed by her mother Janet, her father Tony (and Franca), her brother Brendan (and Jelena), and her extended family and friends. She will stay in the hearts of her beloved nieces Abigail and Paisley, her 'sister' Ariana, and her much-loved feline companion Buddy. Caitlin was born on July 20, 1990 and brought joy and light into her family. A quiet and thoughtful child, she followed in her brother's footsteps all through her schooling, first at G.R. Allan Elementary School, Dalewood Middle School, and finally Westdale High School. She then moved on to higher education at Brock University, until her health issues brought her back to Hamilton. She was an example to all of us as she met these challenges head-on with courage and dignity, as well as a surprising sense of humour. Caitlin was well-known for her love of country music, attending as many concerts as she could. She made regular trips to Toronto with her mom to the Art Gallery and various Theatre productions, with overnights in her favourite hotels. Road trips with her dad expanded her horizons and brought her much happiness. Her solo visit to Arizona (Tucson) for her friend Katie's college graduation was a particular highlight in her travels. She was our real-life Disney princess, and filled our days with visions of her avatar, Belle. As an avid fan of everything by Dr. Seuss, she lived her life ruled by the message of The Lorax ... "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Things will not get better, they'll not." She brought comfort and strength to all of us with her lovely and gracious spirit, and brightened our hearts with her unique and sweet home decorating ideas... A Celebration of Life for our Caitlin will take place at 11 am on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at Westdale United Church, 99 North Oval in Hamilton. In lieu of flowers, Caitlin would be delighted if you made a donation to a charity of your choice. Let's help her make the world a better place.
