Endicott, Kathleen Kathy (nee Fouracre) We are deeply saddened to announce that Kathleen (Kathy) Fouracre Endicott, born May 31, 1925 in Appley, Somerset, England, died on March 17, 2018 in Toronto from complications of thyroid cancer. Kitchen maid (think Downton Abbey); WWII Vet (British Army); war bride (Pier 21, April 1946), wife, mother, grandmother; great-grandmother; homemaker and home cleaner (who retired at the age of 80). Survived by her children Suzanne Huntington and Eric Endicott (Linda Akazawa); grandson John Fairley (Susan Hagopian); great-grandchildren Olivia and Lara Fairley; her surviving in-laws Steve, Mike, Isobel and Shirley and many adoring nephews, nieces in Canada and England, grandnieces and nephews; predeceased by her beloved grandson Rev. Paul Fairley, former husband Norman Endicott, parents George and Winnifred Fouracre, her brothers William, John and sister, Joyce. Kathy lived a good, interesting, long life growing up in poverty in South West England which changed when she left service because the Manor Sir and Lady wanted some of her food rations for themselves, joined the Army and changed again when she immigrated to Canada and was welcomed into a then notorious political family at the height of the Cold War. Although always an enthusiastic supporter of left-wing political causes of the day, her main focus was her family. She was a strong-willed, hard-working, happy, generous, loving and much loved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister-in-law, mother-in-law, aunt and friend. Her family was in fact the centre of her life. She loved to hear their thoughts and plans, supported their adventures and shared her practical and wise counsel. At the same time there were very few strangers she could not befriend with a smile and a chat. She was happiest and will be most missed at the family cottage on Beaver Lake in the Kawarthas. When stricken with a number of afflictions in later years she became a model of determination and perseverance - personal autonomy and staying active were the touchstones by which she made her life decisions. Special thanks to her family physician Dr. Margaret Bennett who helped her overcome these afflictions and gave her confidence so that she was still wowing them with her energy and youthful outlook at age 92. A gathering of family and friends to share memories and celebrate her life is to be arranged.
