  2. I was fortunate to be introduced to Catherine through Wellspring Calgary and to be her sponsor as a Cancervive Warrior on our trip to San Jose. Her strength and beautifully hand written notes helped me complete one of the most challenging rides I have ever done. I still keep one of her notes in my office for inspiration. I will remember her fondly.

  4. Dear Louise and Pierre,

    I am so sorry to hear of Cathy’s passing. She was a remarkable woman and friend. We met in the first year of nursing at the University of Calgary. Cathy was extremely intelligent; by far the smartest in the class. We were envious! She had a beautiful and elegant manner of writing. Cathy was a perfectionist and evolved into a highly skilled and compassionate registered nurse. Her patients received the best of care always!

    Cathy was all about living and she loved a good adventure. I remember her animated stories of hiking through Costa Rica, learning to sail in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, cycling through the wine valley’s in the south of France and climbing every mountain in Banff National Park. She also knew the secret location of every hot spring in British Columbia!

    Cathy had a deep passion for dogs. She began walking my labrador, Tia, as a favor when I moved back to Calgary. Cathy soon had her own rescue dog, Lott, and a pack of dogs that she walked every day. She was committed! I remember the times when her counts were “low”, Cathy would stop at Tom Baker Cancer Centre @ 8 AM and get her dose of medication that she would hang on her shirt collar under her jacket. She would pick up the dogs and start the medication infusion while walking at Nose Hill or Tom Campbell. Cathy was fearless!

    I feel fortunate to have known Cathy. I am grateful for the beautiful memories.

    Susan and Sophie (and Tia) xoxoxo

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on Catherine’s passing. What a great privilege and delight it was to know such an amazing, intelligent woman. Whenever she was at Wellspring, she’d stop by the Library to catch up on “the latest” and share a laugh, even on the days when laughter seemed an impossibility. Her courage was astounding and will forever inspire me. I will never forget her.

  10. I worked with Catherine many years ago at Foothills and was always impressed by her kindness, compassion, and intelligence. She and I worked on some projects together and her commitment to, and enthusiasm for, ‘adding extra value’ to her role as a nurse were strong and much appreciated. My most sincere condolences to your family.

    I was very fortunate to have taken care of Kathy at Glenmore Park. She was an awesome lady with a huge heart and a good sense of humor. She knew one of our rescue bassets that we adopted. Unfortunately we lost him to cancer in January. I believe that they are in heaven together running and enjoying life. Im very sorry for your loss.

    I met Cathy on a cycling trip through the Gulf Islands in the early 90’s. We became friends and continued the friendship in Calgary. We shared such great times, cross country skiing, cycling, and walking. She told me I was the only friend who knew what walking meant. Hours and hours spent on the pathways of Calgary. We shared so many laughs. Elle riait de Bon coeur. Rest in peace dear friend . I know you are stirring things up, up there.
