PRIOR, Karin (51)
PRIOR Karin - In loving memory of Karin Prior, 51 years, who died on Monday, August 20, from injuries sustained in a vehicle accident on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. Raised in Lively, Karin graduated from Western University in 1985 with a BSc, Occupational Therapy. Shortly after, she moved to London, UK and later, she and her then companion, Brian Hindson relocated to the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.

In addition to her daughter, Karin is survived by her parents, Thomas and Marion, sister Lynn and her husband John Roizin, brother Gordon and his wife Andrée Cadieux, sister Susan and her husband Tim Hore, her companion John Hodkin, and her friend Brian Hindson. Karin inspired so many with her skills, enthusiasm, creativity, and generosity. We will miss her adventurous and loving spirit. Funeral arrangements are being handled in Uig, Scotland.

I know your entire family is in a great deal of pain, as are all of Karin's friends. I knew Karin for 32 years and she was the most caring, insightful human being I've ever known. I wish you safe travels on your return trip home. My parents (Margaret Stavang, who knew Marion in high school, and Clifford Smythe, who knew Thom from the Copper Cliff Club), also send their sincere sympathy.
To all of the Priors: Paul and I were so shocked and saddened to hear of Karin's death. It's still so hard to believe. We are thinking of all of you and wishing there was something we could do to ease your pain. I remember Karin's wonderful smile and laugh. She will be missed by so many who loved her and whose lives she touched in a very special way.
Dear Mr.and Mrs.Prior, Lynn, Gordon, Susan and families, Words cannot express the sorrow I felt upon hearing the news of Karins sudden passing. My deepest sympathies go out to you and your families. I will treasure the memories of the friendship we shared. Sincerely, Sue
Dear Marion and Tom We are so sorry to this news. Our prayers and condolences to all the family during this time. Garry and Cindy
I was saddened and shocked by this tragic news. Karin was an old friend from Grade 13 in Espanola and a roommate at Western. A wonderful, lovely person. So sad....Patrick Diebel
Life is eternal, and love is immortal and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight. (R. W. Raymond) May peace be with you all, Eva Ekeroth
Dear Marion, Tom and family: I was so sorry to hear of Karin's accident from Sylvia and she said you had all just been there. I saw the report in the Scottish newspaper. It sounds like Karin enjoyed life in Scotland and I am glad you will be there for a while and to be with Bethany. Sincerely with love Cathy
