Johnny RyanAlthough I haven’t see her in quite a few years I was shocked and saddened to learn of Aunt Cathy’s passing. Taken way too soon my heart breaks for all who were close with her. Above everything I remember her for her witty sense of humour. She was a funny lady. Such a great Mom to Patrick and Andrew. Thinking of all of you. What a loss. XO
Ann BallI knew Cathy for 40 yrs, co-workers from LFP. Cathy was a wonderful friend; I will miss our outings and the gab sessions we would share over a glass of wine. Her humour, her caring and friendship will stay with me forever. I am heartbroken to have lost a dear friend far too early. xoxo

Ali & Greg KeldsonWe are absolutely heartbroken. So grateful Cathy came for her annual visit on November 30th to our Beernut booth when we were in town for the 2018 London Christmas Craft Show. She was her usual funny yet unassuming self! She spoke fondly of her past year spent with her boys, grandchildren, extended family, Paul and her workplace. Cathy graciously worked with us at our Beernut booth at the Western Fair for about 10 years. Way too soon but will never be forgotten....thoughts and love to all of Cathy's family and friends in London. Ali & Greg Niagara Falls, ON
Denise PelleyI am so sorry to hear of Cathy's passing. I worked with Cathy many years ago at The Free Press. I enjoyed her wonderful sense of humour and beautiful smile. I still have the beautiful Christmas ornament she gave me after my son died. Such a thoughtful person. Sending thoughts and prayers to her family.
