In early January of this year, The Kiwanis Club of Sudbury was informed Warna Timlock, a staunch supporter of the arts in Sudbury and a long-standing volunteer with the Kiwanis Music & Dance Festivals, was staying in Hamilton to care for her daughter Kimberley, who was dying. Thanks to the wonderful article written by managing editor Vicki Gilhula, and the support from Northern Life, many people were made aware of  what was happening to Warna and Kimberley. The Kiwanis Dance Festival received a total of $3,795, which was forwarded directly to Warna in Hamilton. This community effort allowed Kimberley to remain in her apartment longer with her mom, relieved Warna of any financial stresses she had back home, and assisted in covering hospital incidentals and Kimberley's memorial service and last farewell. Kimberley passed away peacefully with her mom, Warna and her brother, Jack, at her side on Sunday March 5. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Warna and Jack as they mourn the passing of Kimberley. But we also give thanks for having known Kimberley, for her love of dance and for the dance legacy she has left us, which spans across generations and continents.
