April 22, 1934 – November 7, 2013
Catherine Ann Lilian Hordos of Calgary, passed away on Thursday November 7th at the age of 79.
Catherine emigrated from Scotland in the late 50’s and made Calgary her home where she married Andras Joseph and raised two daughters. Catherine was a unique spirit and despite facing challenges and adversity throughout her life she triumphed with drive and determination. She had incredible faith and trust and lived her life without fear and regret. Those who met Catherine admired her spirit, sense of humour and were charmed by her childlike and carefree nature. She touched many people and will be greatly missed. Her family and friends take comfort knowing that her love and spirit will live on forever.
Catherine is survived by daughters Anne Van Bavel and Sandra Hordos and is remembered by son-in-law Ron Van Bavel, grandson Michael Van Bavel, her nieces Margaret Mitcham and Anne Paulin and other loving family in Scotland.
In her honour a private memorial will be held for immediate family. Relatives and friends are requested to celebrate her life through loving memories.
