Katherine Claire Hiles

April 25, 1982 - September 15, 2013


Our dear sweet Katy brought such beauty to being human!  Her laughter, joy, dedication to spirit and helping others, touched the lives of those around her.  She spent her days caring for little and big ones, learning the ways of sacred service. Katy was dedicated to her spiritual practices, and loving those around her in a way that made each feel unique and special.  Katy lived from deep integrity, and embraced life with passion and true authenticity. She received her B.A. from Naropa University in Contemplative Psychology, was a gifted Yoga instructor, loved traveling the world and was a true tea connoisseur.  Katy loved to nourish those around her with her delicious food and abundant heart.  When visiting Canada she fell in love with the beauty and people of the Kootenays.  It was here she met her wife Mirelle, and the two were married with great joy September 29, 2012.  She passed into the light painlessly, September 15, 2013, in a fatal car crash.  She is greatly missed and survived by her loving and dedicated wife Mirelle Evans, her parents Janet Daum and Bill & Patricia Meacham, her older sister Greta, and many dear friends.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear Katy. She was truly a living angel with so much light and love. She was a pillar in our family who provided our children with nurturing so great that it made us want to be better parents. Her natural serenity and deep spirituality was always an inspiration. Katy was a true healer with her strength and her natural intuition to read our children and to provide them with deep joy.

Our family is blessed to have known Katy and to have had her apart of our family for three beautiful years. She taught us, she supported us, she loved us, and she inspired us on so many different levels.

Our lives and hearts will always hold Katy tight. She will be greatly missed.

Our condolences go out to dear Mirelle, Janet, Bill, Patricia and Greta during this time.
