McCALLION, Kathryn Elizabeth
Peacefully at her Ottawa home on June 1, 2014. Loved always by her sisters Sharon (Greg McClemont), Janet, Marguerite (Bruce Buller), brothers James (Jeannie Anderson) and Thomas, nieces Laura, Aleasha, Harmony, Seneca, Juniper, and nephews Elwin, Noah, Jason, Russel, Rylan, Sky and families. Kathryn will be greatly missed by her dear friend Barbara Burns and many wonderful friends, neighbours and colleagues. A graduate of the University of Waterloo, Kathryn held various positions in the Department of Foreign Affairs from 1973 to 2009 including postings to Mexico City, Boston, the OECD, and Jamaica where she served as Canada's High Commissioner. Kathryn was an expert in international trade and foreign policy and a superb manager. She was a dedicated public servant, serving Canada tirelessly for over 35 years. An enthusiastic outdoor adventurer and world traveller, Kathryn gave her best to everything and set an example for us all.
