The Wallerawang School remembers Ms Fahey as a beautiful lady full of love and patience.
Ms Fahey has been a valued member of the Wallerawang Public School staff for 10 years.
To Kym, her family was her everything and she loved them unconditionally - her husband Steve, children Elsea, Charlie, Paul and Yolanda, granddaughter Lilly and parents Steve and Edwina.
As a teacher we remember Ms Fahey as caring, kind, committed and dedicated.
She was passionate about teaching, but more importantly about every student.
Kym was able to see the good in everyone and every situation and bring out the best in every student.
Ms Fahey had a love of literature and shared this with her students.
She had a genuine interest in her students and families and always welcomed new students to the school, saying how important it is for them to belong as she remembered being the new kid.
Ms Fahey's positive attitude, her sense of fun, calmness and creativity resonated in every classroom, with the students and her colleagues.
Kym was incredibly intuitive to the needs of her students and started the year with her class with a small gift that reminded them of their place in the class and the year ahead.
Students have remembered Ms Fahey sharing memories of the time spent with in her class.
We are reminded through these of the significance of Ms Fahey's life in education and her commitment to the students of Wallerawang Public School.
Ms Fahey made everyone feel welcome, she was a mentor to her colleagues and used her experience to help others.
Ms Fahey has the record for conducting the biggest choir at Wallerawang and always had an item prepared for special ceremonies and events at the school, at which she would conduct with the biggest smile and heartfelt enthusiasm.
Kym was indeed a lover of fashion and had her own unique dress sense, she was always immaculately presented. Ms Fahey loved her vibrant, colourful and exuberant dresses always match by a pair of shoes with the same zest.
We fondly remember her themed shoes and the bright yellow bumble bees.
Kym always looked at things differently, with a true love of life and all things beautiful.
Cherishing life, family, friends, the beauty of a rose, a magnificent sunny day.
Kym could see the absolute beauty in life, in everything and everyone. In any conversation had with Kym she would exquisitely describe things in the loveliest of ways, making the most mundane topics beautiful.
Kym's true sense of adventure, her kind hearted spirit that made you feel special and valued, a note of appreciation, laughing, sharing dreams is the way that we will all remember her.
We remember Ms Fahey as a loving wife, mother, nan, daughter and friend knowing that this world is a better place because of her and our lives are enriched and we are better people as result of her being in our life.
