May 6, 1943 ~ December 6, 2012
Cathie passed away peacefully on December 6, 2012 in Kamloops, BC.
Cathie was born in Regina, Saskatchewan May 6, 1943. Her family settled in Creston, BC where Cathie spent her childhood, even becoming Blossom Festival Queen at the age of 16.
She graduated from The University of British Columbia with a degree in Microbiology. While working at The Bay she met her husband Doug. They spent their time hiking in the Rockies before settling down and having children. Cathie and Doug settled in Whistler BC with their two children and Cathie was an active member in the community. One of her favourite pastimes was singing in the Whistler Singers choir.
After the children had left, Cathie and Doug retired. They moved up to their cabin on Young Lake and enjoyed the peace and tranquility. Cathie’s favourite sound was the loons on the lake. The last few years were spent enjoying their condo in Kamloops and enjoying being with friends and family.
Cathie is survived by her husband Doug, her son Casey Greenwood (Kim), her daughter Carly Greenwood, her grandchildren Braelynn, Lundyn, Laekyn and Tyler. She is also survived by her amazing mother Hettie. Predeceased by her father Richard.
The family would like to thank all of the wonderful staff on second floor Orchard at Ridgeview in Kamloops BC. Thank you for all of your wonderful and compassionate care of our wife, mother, daughter and friend. We could not have asked for a more amazing team of health care workers to have taken better care of her.
At Cathie’s request there will be no service.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Parkinson’s Society of BC.
