"It is with sadness that the Revelstoke RCMP must advise the community that Sergeant Kim Hall passed away yesterday after a brief medical emergency," wrote Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky in a news release.

Hall was with her family in Sechelt, B.C., when she experience a stroke on Saturday, Grabinsky told the Times Review. She was hospitalized and put on life support, but passed away Monday.

Originally from Manitoba, Hall started with the RCMP in 1990 and was posted to the Terrace, B.C., detachment. She joined the Revelstoke detachment in 2011 after postings in Chilliwack, the Sunshine Coast, the Boundary area, and the Sea-to-Sky detachment.

She was a founding member of the British Columbia Youth Police Network, a group that works to reduce youth crime.

The mother of three will be remembered at a private service on the Sunhsine Coast this week. A memorial service will be held this summer in her home of Kilarney, Manitoba.

Grabinsky said it would be "business as usual" at the Revelstoke detachment as officer cope with Hall's loss.

"We will honour her memory by doing the work we do," he said.
