I will very much miss my sweet, kind and loving Aunt Cathy. One of the best cook/baker that there ever was! A terrific sense of humour, a spectacular letter writer (when a certain niece was terrified and in the hospital). A particularly sentimental great gift giver at all family holiday get togethers (when we as your nieces and newphews were little~this meant alot to a little girl ;) ). A beautiful soul in and out who adored her family. I will most miss her caring emails and loving, thoughtful voice. Big, huge thank you Aunt Cathy, for YOU were the one who organized our last big family get together Christmas 2018. What a special gift you gave to us all, your family, on that day and so very grateful we have such happy memories forever from it. Give a kiss to your mother, grandma Mary and your father, grandpa Frank in Heaven for me! I will see you Aunt Cathy, one day in the stars.... Love Shannon xox

To Harry and family. My deepest condolences. Cathy and I worked together for many years in the good old Canada Trust Real Estate days. Cathy was a "special" lady. Funny, honest and caring. We shared many great times together. Rest In Peace Cathy, you will be dearly missed. Rosemary Mounsey
