Akilie, Kristine Ruth (nee Kaiser)

Kris often said that everything happens for a reason. Stay strong, stay positive - things will work themselves out. Forever an optimist, she courageously embodied this motto until the end, when she passed among friends and family on July 13, 2019.

Kris was an endlessly loving and supportive mother to Gordon Akilie (Nicole Stark), and will soon be a grandmother whose legacy will not be lost. Kris was a beloved daughter to Laurie Kaiser (Gordon Kaiser - 2013), a confidant and sister to Stephen Kaiser (Robin) and Kimberly Kaiser, and wife to Nizar (2010).

Kris lived her rich life for other people. Joy for her was seeing others smile, usually by her own doing. She adored horses, world travel and enjoying wine and good food with old friends. Her happy place was the cottage, where each morning she raked the beach to the lapping waves in the pre-dawn shadows.

Our sincerest gratitude goes out to Dr. Levesque and his amazing staff at the Walker Family Cancer Centre, and to Kris’ committed nursing team, specifically Darryl Nutbrown. Kim Demoel, Jane Walker, Ronna Katzman - you are the definition of friendship. Kevin Berswick, Margaret Beaupre, Emily Mete - you were not just work colleagues, but life companions.

Kris was a fundraiser and community organizer to her very core. That will not change. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation can be made to Mainstream Services (, whose clients Kris was continually inspired by and for whom she cared deeply. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

She's going to be missed. I enjoyed having her as my manager when I did graffiti . She was a very kind soul. Rest In peace Kristine.

Dear Gordon and family,
We are so sorry to hear of your sweet Mother's passing - she was a truly kind, loving, and joyful soul. So sad that your child will not have the benefit of her devotion, but we know you will keep her memory alive always. Kris made my years at Oakridge so much fun, many, many laughs together... although we lost touch, I will miss her.
Hoping you and your family will be forever comforted by happy reminders, recollections and reminisces.
Thinking of you, sending hugs,
Janis and Rick Corvino

I'll always remember and cherish the time I spent working with Kris. We worked together side by side for 6 years and she quickly became so much more than a supervisor to me. She was a friend, a nurturer, a confidante, and an amazing role model. She taught me so much about life, love, and most!

She had a remarkable way of finding the positive in everything. She was a strong and passionate woman. She spoke so highly of her family and was so proud of her son, Gord.

She will always hold a special place in my heart.
I love you, Kris.
