The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) expresses condolences to the family and friends of Kathy Richardson. Kathy’s recent passing is a loss for the community of Naramata and the region.

Kathy was a licensed hairstylist and operated her own home-based salon for many years. “Kathy was well known in the community as both a business owner and volunteer,” says RDOS Chair Karla Kozakevich. “She was a kind person who would always smile and wave when we passed each other in the village.”

In November 2017, Kathy joined the Naramata Volunteer Fire Department (NVFD) as a volunteer member. “Kathy is a great example of how an individual can make a community a better place,” says Naramata Fire Chief Dennis Smith. “Kathy brought an exceptional skill set and compassion to people during medical emergencies. She was also deployed provincially as a NVFD team member during recent wildfire events. We will miss her.”

The Regional District provides support for RCMP Victim Services which offers assistance and resources to those in need. For further information, please call 250-770-4713.
