Obituary of Kimberly Lynn Hislop

Hislop, Kimberly Lynn Riverton/Durham- It is with the greatest sadness that we share the passing of our beloved Kim on October 5th 2021. Kim left us after a very lengthy and courageous battle with lung cancer. Kim was born in New Glasgow, grew up in Riverton and found her forever home in Durham. She was the daughter of the late Ruth George. Kim is survived by her devoted husband of 32 years Donnie Hislop, two sons Michael (Julie McIsaac) Hislop, New Glasgow; and Matthew Hislop, Stellarton; grandchildren, Foster Langille and Hazel Hislop; Mother-in-law, Muriel Hislop, Saltsprings; Aunts Lindy (John) Cornet, Riverton; Margaret (Blaine) Steeves, Mount William; Uncles: Donnie (Dorothy-Lane Hale), Westville; Doug (Kay) Hale, Ottawa; Cousins Susan (Kevin) Cruikshank, Enfield; Alan (Kelly) MacLeod, Subenacadie; Tracy (Eric) Savoie; McLellan’s Brook; Dana (Hywel Jones) MacLeod, Westville; Erin MacLeod, Riverton; Paul (Laurie) Dean, Durham; Mark Dean, Riverton; Karla (Lawrence) Chisholm, Scotch Hill; Lori (Alain) Curadeau, Enfield ; Kevin (Eva) Hislop Halifax; Donna (Nigel, deceased) Board, Little Harbour. Along with Kim’s mother, she was predeceased by many family members. For those who knew and loved Kim, all would know of her passion for books and what they could bring to your life. She was an avid reader and enjoyed sharing her love with others through her work and her family and friends. Anyone who had the pleasure to receive a gift from Kim would know it was made with deep thought and by her own hands. Her love of animals began with her stables and the horses within. Riding gave Kim the greatest pleasure. Her love didn’t stop there. Her beloved Willow, Jasper and Arrow were a great source of comfort and entertainment. Kim loved her garden and the wonderful chickadees and butterflies that flourished there. But for Kim, family was most important. This is where Kim smiled and laughed the most. She always knew she wanted to be a mother. She loved her boys unconditionally. Her grandchildren were the next generation of delight in her life. They held a very special place in her heart and it was evident whether they were with her or if she was waiting for their arrival. Kim and Debbie Wright, her lifelong friend, had a bond that stood the test of time. It didn’t matter where life took them, they always had each other right until the end. Throughout Kim’s life with cancer she was blessed with many wonderful health care providers and was very humbled by all who shared this journey with her.
