It is with incredible sadness that we announce the passing of Kathy Tovey, on Friday, June 12th, 2020. Kathryn Elizabeth Tovey (nee Wright) was born January 10th, 1947 in Toronto, Ontario. She was a Milton resident with her husband Mike for over 45 years. Kathy was an incredible teacher for the Toronto District School Board for over 30 years, and after her retirement she continued to do wonderful volunteer work within the Milton Community. After the passing of her best friend and life partner Mike (just six short weeks ago) it is clear that while Kathy was working hard to move forward, her heart was broken (passing of a heart attack). What was truly wonderful, was how many phone calls and special visits Kathy had had over the past several weeks with family and friends. While it is difficult to say goodbye, it is made a little easier with the cherished memories that we can all still hold of this wonderful woman. She was an amazing daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, niece and friend. Kathy’s greatest joy was watching her sons, Scott and Jordan, grow-up to become the incredible men they are today. She also loved the time that she spent with her daughter-in-law and good friend Leanne, and beloved grandchildren Aiden and Sydney. Kathy will forever be missed by her sons Scott (Leanne, Aiden and Sydney) and Jordan. She will be missed by her mother Madeline, brother Bill (Cindy), nephews Philip and Keri (Grayson), Matt and Jessica (Elise and Dana) and pre-deceased niece Valerie. She will be deeply missed by her best friend and childhood companion Donna (Bob) and all their friends in New Hamburg. A spot will forever be missing in the lives of lifetime friends Ruth and Brian, Kathy and Jim, and Lori and Bob. Her extended family, the Coombes, Smiths, Vaugeois, and travelling partners Judy and Barry, will forever feel her absence. Her neighbours will miss their time with Kathy - Diane and Dave, Karen and Alex, Sue and Jim, and so many others. Many fun times were also spent with Cam and Tom and their Film Club Crew. The Wright Family and Milburn Family always held a very special place in Kathy’s heart and they will dearly miss her compassion, kindness, and care.
Cremation has taken place, and at her request there will be no funeral service, but a celebration of life for both Kathy and Mike will come at a later date. If you wish to honour Kathy’s memory, donations can be made to Halton Down Syndrome Association.

Mrs Tovey was my volleyball coach and teacher nearly 25 years ago. I was also in touch with her over the years and cannot believe that she has passed on. She was kind, patient, a wonderful teacher, leader and friend and thanks to her I still think of my times at HVV ever so fondly to this day. She will never be forgotten. Sending love to her family and my condolences. Xo Ann Klosowski

Mrs. Tovey was my teacher in the 7th grade and volley ball coach. We stayed in contact long after I left Humber Valley and she even came to my wedding and was one of the first people to hold my son. She was a very important person to me and one of my greatest role models. She will be dearly missed.

Kathy was a wonderful person. I knew her best in our high school years. I remember her enthusiasm for life, her kindness and thoughtfulness to others. I hadn’t heard that Mike also died recently. Her dad, Bob and my dad, carpooled together going downtown to work and our parents enjoyed playing bridge together. At times our families would get together.
My thoughts and prayers are with her sons and her family, especially Madeline, Bill and Cindy.
Sincerely Linda (Franklin) Patrick

Kathy Tovey was a teaching colleague of mine for many years at Humber Valley Village in Toronto. Two special memories I have of her were training hard as dragon-boat teammates on Lake Ontario and staying up way too late together at the Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City while supervising grade eight students. She was a dedicated teacher and a supportive colleague who will be missed.
