It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Kristy on Friday, February 2, 2018 at the age of 41. Kristy's bright blue eyes and warm smile could light up a room. She loved all her animals and would help anyone in need. Her creativity came through in the crafts and decorating she enjoyed doing. She is survived by her beloved fiancé Shawn Robson, her loving parents Sally Copeland and David Copeland (Sandra Bowden), mother in law, Nancy, sister in law, Tania (Darwin), niece, nephew, dear uncles, aunts and cousins. Kristy will be missed by her friends and co-workers. Cremation will take place. A Memorial Gathering will be held at SMITH'S FUNERAL HOME, 454 Highway #8 (east of Millen Road) STONEY CREEK (905-664-4222) on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 from 6-9 p.m. with tributes at 8 p.m. If desired, memorial contributions to the Canadian Mental Health Association, that Kristy avidly supported, would be sincerely appreciated by the family.
