Kathy Ann Chiu (Piepgrass), age 65, passed away on January 10th, 2021 after a short battle with an aggressive cancer. She is survived by her four children, Mark (Carmen), Jeremy (Chantal), Spencer (Rhonda), and Stephen (Ann), her 8 grandchildren (Jonah, Charlotte, Eden, Hunter, Alice, Micah, Isla and Lars) and her siblings Mary Lou, Brenda (Pat), Brent (Barbara), Maureen (Will) and Ward (Christina). She was predeceased by her parents Bert and Joyce Piepgrass.
Kathy was born on November 15th, 1955 to Bert and Joyce in Lethbridge, Alberta. She was the fourth of six children. While Kathy grew up in Lethbridge, she raised her family of four boys in St. Albert, Alberta for many years before moving to Edmonton in 1996. She enjoyed being a homemaker, loved music and dancing; was an avid piano player and an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
She also loved cookbooks (not cooking), the first page of fresh notebooks, stationary of all kinds, knitting slippers and mittens (too small or too big), her signature on things that didn’t require it, perfumes and spices, Phantom of the Opera, but most of all her children and grandchildren. She happily marched to the beat of her own drum in all things. She will forever be loved, remembered and missed.
