Funeral Details: Private Family Arrangements

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Kim Bishop in her 79th year at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre after a lengthy illness.

Predeceased by parents Joseph and Evelyn Atkins.  Proud Mother of Ryan (Penny) of Oshawa, Ontario, and Robyn (Chad) of Loretto, Ontario.  Adventuresome Nanny to 4 beautiful and individually unique granddaughters, Ravyn, Tylo, Sophie, and Chloe.   She will be lovingly remembered by her bonus granddaughters, Cheyenne, and Lydia.   Sister to Paul Atkins (Beth) of Williamsford, Ontario.

Kim was extremely creative with an abundance of talents she made with love by her hands.  She loved to sew, embroider, knit, and bake, who was especially known for her homemade dill pickles!  She worked with large corporations in Toronto as an Executive Secretary beginning her career with De Havilland Aircraft where her love for travelling the world was born.

Kim is remembered as a kind and giving person with a beautiful smile and an infectious laugh.  She was widely known for vocally cheering for the Montreal Canadians!

As per Kim's wishes, there will be no service and cremation has taken place.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Kim's memory can be made to the Seasons Center for Grieving Children Barrie or to the Make a Wish Foundation Canada would be greatly appreciated.

Oceans of Love, may the current take you on your best journey yet ❤️

Peaceful Transition Simcoe

    My deepest, most sincere, from the heart condolences to Robyn, Ryan, Uncle Paul, Chris, and Tammy. For the past few weeks, I’ve had about a million memories swirl through my mind, my heart. Most of them included huge laughter, and Auntie Kim’s twinkling eyes b/c that’s where her smile lived most. You could gauge her by her beautiful eyes. It may have been years since we’d seen each other, but the love I felt was always there for the woman who added so much life and laughter to my childhood. You will be missed here, but Heaven is surely having an epic party.
