Born on the prairies, Cathy was raised in BC, she met her husband in Williams Lake. Cathy and Spike arrived in the Valley in the mid 1950’s, to be closer to family. She was a homemaker first and foremost, keeping busy raising three boys and caring for her niece Susan. Cathy believed in giving back to her community and was really involved with the Special Olympics and Citizen Advocacy Society.
In her later years, she enjoyed; puzzles, knitting, reading, and socializing with her group of friends. Always willing to lend a hand if someone needed anything was a sign of her giving and caring nature. Her sense of humour and love of laughter was apparent even into her later years, as was her love for animals.
