It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Kathleen Marie Goss (nee McCarthy) on December 29, 2006, at the age of 51 years. She was recently battling breast cancer complications, which resulted in cardiac arrest.
Kathleen is survived by her loving husband, Rob, and her two beautiful daughters, Nicole and Lindsay. She is also remembered by her brothers, Peter, Brian, and Daniel McCarthy; her sisters, Maureen McCarthy and Naomi DiRago; her dad, Owen, and his wife, Mary McCarthy; Mary’s family, Cathy Davies, Cheryle Tilly, and Bill McNabb; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Kathleen was predeceased by her mother, Virgina McCarthy (nee Porter).
Kathleen was born to Owen and Virginia McCarthy in Toronto, Ontario, on June 6, 1955. She was an active volunteer in the church, including the youth advisory council, Eucharistic ministry, pastoral care, sacramental preparation, and Sunday school. In addition, she volunteered at her daughters’ schools within class, on hot lunch committees, on the community of caring committee, as secretary within the music society, and as secretary on the parent’s council. Within the community she was a blood donor, and gave generously to many charities. In July of 2006 Kathleen landed her dream job, as student advisor within Biological Sciences at the University of Calgary. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched.
