She was a loving friend, who provided warmth, humor and a good story. Cathy was a wonderful mother and grandmother. She raised five children alone but she did it with grace and style, in a unique manner that only she could provide.

She will be remembered by her loving children, Tess, Tricia, Kate, Morgan and Patrick, siblings Audrey and James, along with many grandchildren, countless friends and partner Johnny. As per her wishes, a celebration of life will be held in the spring at Swy-A-Lana Lagoon, with the sunshine, music and laughter of the Nanaimo community she loved so dearly.
