March 30, 1964 – November 2, 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kelley Anne Viklund. Kelley passed away peacefully on November 2nd, 2021, after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Kelley had been in remission for six years prior to her last battle with breast cancer in 2014.
Kelley is survived by her partner Vince Smith, daughters; Katie Collinge and Alison Collinge (Duncan), mother Evelyn Viklund, sisters; Cindy Beaulieu (Gary), Sharon Casanave (Rob), and sister-in-law Donna Viklund (Ken), step-daughters, grandkids, nieces and nephews and several other extended family members and friends.
Kelley is predeceased by her father Dennis Viklund, and brother Chris Viklund.
Kelley touched the hearts of many with her kind, empathetic, and compassionate ways. Kelley was known for her beautiful smile, contagious laugh, and positive energy that connected with people and created positive impacts in their lives. She had a passion for her gardens and loved to spend time outdoors, especially camping in the summer! She loved music, singing and dancing. Kelley’s supportive, and genuine character radiated endless love for her family and friends, who she always put first.
Kelley’s strength and determination was an inspiration to all. She never gave up hope. She will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts. We would like to thank all the nurses, health care teams, family and friends for their compassion, care, and support during this difficult time. Please consider a donation to the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation, c/o Hospice at the Views. 101 Lerwick Road, Courtenay BC, V9N 0B9.
