Welcome to Humans of Kitchissippi! Our goal is to introduce readers to some of the people who live, work, and play here in Kitchissippi, and let those people share snippets of their own lives. Each installment of HOK will contain three elements: a photo, a name, and a quote from the subject that reveals a little bit about who they are. Click on any of the links below to view the full post and meet your neighbours.
Check out my sister-in-law, Sandra Coultish. She’s lived at the corner of Princeton and Highland for 50+ years. She can tell you who lived where in the neighbourhood and how long they were there. She was a student at Nepean. She was a nurse for many years at the Civic and then at the Heart Institute. She never had a sick day until she broke her wrist learning to roller blade in the basement when she was 60ish. She did Girl Guide stuff when young women were expected to do good works. She is a member of All Saints Westboro, where she still serves her community. She puts her laundry on a line in the back yard, because that’s energy efficient (okay, she’s always done that!) so the high school kids can have a laugh when they walk by. She has been incredibly supportive of all her nieces and nephews and looked after her mother, Diana, at home before her death two years ago. She’s tough as nails and soft as a marshmallow.
