Kimberley Rose Milner (nee Dowson)
May 22, 1964- January 8,2023
Suddenly on January 8th, 2023, Kimberley passed away in Selkirk, Mb. She was loved by her husband David Milner, her children, Jeremy (Kristen), Alex-Arissa (Clayton), and her amazing grandbabies, Jadyn, Layla, and Emery to which she loved the most. She will be greatly missed by her mom, Phyllis, her brothers Darren (Debbie), Michael (Janice) and numerous nieces, nephews, friends, and extended family. She was predeceased by her father, Robert Dowson.
Kimberley grew up in Garson, Manitoba until she moved to Selkirk with her family at a young age. She attended school in Selkirk and soon after, met her husband Dave, they spent the next 37 years together raising a family in their home on Eveline Street.
She had many friends and memories over the years with her children’s many sports they played to keep themselves busy. Kimberley was always front line for any of her kid’s activities and could not wait to do the same once her granddaughters arrived. Kimberley loved spending summers at the family cottage at Wallace Lake, and later on, Great Woods Camp Ground, where she met so many more people and families. The past few years you could always find her sitting on her deck, enjoying the company of the squirrels and birds, or whatever other animal seemed to wonder into the yard, or watching her grandbabies play, in what was for them, a playground, as Kim had so many toys for the kids. She even quit working 9 years ago, to make sure she could be available to look after her grandbabies, to help them grow, and teach them the art of shopping, Kimberley’s favorite pass time.
Kimberley also loved traveling, with many trips to Mexico, and could not wait to make it to the beach again when she was healthy enough to travel. She has made trips throughout Western Canada, including weekends to Carlyle, Saskatchewan. The last few years, it was many day trips to various lakes, including Kenora, Ontario, to let her dogs swim and play in the water.
The last 2 ½ years had been a struggle for Kimberley. The family would like to thank, Selkirk Regional Health Centre, H.S.C., Selkirk Home Care, Members and their families of Selkirk Fire Department, and the ongoing support from so many friends, relatives, and coworkers.
A come and go visitation will be held on Friday, January 13, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in the Gilbart Funeral Chapel, to meet with the family. Followed by a private burial service at a later date.

YOU ARE NOW AT PEACE, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, WE LOVE YOU.
