Obituary for Kaitlin Mary Page "Kait" Saxton

Kaitlin Mary Page "Kait"  Saxton
With heavy, heavy hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Kaitlin Mary Page Saxton, our beautiful, beloved baby girl. Kait was the youngest daughter of Michael and Kathryn Saxton. She was born on a stormy day in Halifax after a treacherous drive from Truro on February 3, 1989. She is survived by her parents; her brother, Mike and her sisters, Amy and Johanna; her niece, Bella; aunts, uncles, and cousins too numerous to mention and her companion and confidante, Vinny - the Great Pyrenees.

Kait was highly intelligent, witty, and beautiful from the inside out. She was an accomplished pianist from the age of six. To quote her piano teacher, “Her music was joyful and came from her heart.” Kait was an exceptional skier from the age of three excelling as a racer and a much-loved ski instructor at Ski Wentworth. She was a natural mediator praised for her skills from a very young age. Kait participated in the peer mediator program in elementary school and honed her skills throughout her short life. She was a loyal friend blessed with varied friendships, remembering everyone’s birthday from playschool onward. She had a great sense of humour, a lilting voice, and a contagious laugh.

Kait attended Dalhousie University and graduated with a BA in Political Science. She worked as a Page at the N.S. Legislature in her final year at Dal which eventually led to a job in the Conservative Caucus office in Halifax where she worked diligently for approximately seven years. She worked from October of last year for the Independent MLA in Amherst, Elizabeth Smith-McCrossin. She loved her job and bonded quickly with Elizabeth, who treated Kait with respect and dignity. She was Legislative and Communications Director doing what she truly loved.

She died too young, but in her generous spirit, donated her organs. She gave so much to everyone she met. Kait was kind, compassionate, loyal, smart, loving, and wise beyond her years. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched. We loved her dearly. We are devastated by our loss.

Donations may be made to a charity of choice.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, June 19th from 2-4pm in Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro, NS. A social gathering will take place after 4pm at the Saxton home, 345 Wentworth Station Road. Everyone welcome.
