October 11, 1945 – Toronto, Ontario
July 29, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
It is with deep sadness and much love that we announce the passing of Catherine Estelle St. John (née Coulman) on July 29, 2014 in Calgary, AB at the age of 68 years.
Catherine was born in Toronto on October 11, 1945. Beloved wife and partner of 45 years to Robert (Bob). Loving mother to Jennifer (Rich) Smart, and Jeff. Adored grandma to Jordan, Cate and Rebecca. She was predeceased by her parents (William and Stella Coulman), and brothers William (Beryl) and Robert. Catherine also leaves behind brother David (Pat), sister-in-law Bonnie, ten nieces and nephews and their families and Kim, Ava and Ella.
Her life’s work was caring for her family and she built a loving home, first in Toronto and later in Calgary. Catherine was a gentle soul, a kind and thoughtful woman who will be greatly missed. She faced the cancer that took her with the same dignity and grace with which she approached her life. The family would like to thank the doctors and staff at Foothills Medical Centre, Tom Baker Cancer Centre and Southwood Hospice.
A Memorial Service will be held at Bethany Chapel of Calgary (3333 Richardson Way SW) on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at 1:00 pm. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Aspen Family & Community Network Society (www.aspenfamily.org).
In living memory of Catherine, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.Print This Obituary & Condolences
