Catherine Margaret Grant, 57, passed away peacefully on March 6. Cathy was surrounded by family members and close friends. Cathy struggled for years with MS and in the last few years battled cancer.

Cathy was born in Halifax on Sept. 15, 1958. Cathy had unconquerable streaks of independence, adventure and fun. She worked aboard a fishing boat for several years, took a leap of faith to test skydiving.

Cathy’s treasures were her friends and the great times they enjoyed together especially at the Legion on Commercial Dr. Her Nova Scotia roots and family were always close to her heart. Over the last few years her dearest friends Barb Jackson, Anna Vincelli, Steve Campbell and Linda Furlong did all they could to make Cathy comfortable and give her the best possible quality of life.

Cathy leaves behind all of her friends, brother Rick (Peggy), sister Mary Herod (Barry), nieces Erine Grant, Meghan Grant and Kate Morrison and nephew Joe Grant, step niece Jaime Lavers as well as grand nieces and nephews. Cathy was predeceased by her parents, Alexander (Alex) and Mary (Rankin), brothers Alexander (Sandy), Michael and Paul.

Thank you to the staff of the Royal Ascot Care Centre especially those on the third floor and thanks to the staff at the BC Cancer Agency, particularly Dr. Jennifer Davies.

You are missed by all, Cathy.

    You Will Be Missed

    Saying goodbye
    Is the hardest thing to do
    I never thought I would
    Especially not to you.

    You always listened
    And knew what to say
    Knew when to give a hug
    When I was having a bad day.

    No one will ever take your place
    I can always promise you this
    It’s hard to find someone like you
    So know you’ll always be missed

    Those special memories of you
    Will always bring a smile
    If only we could have you back
    For just a little while
    Then we could sit and talk again
    Just like we use to do
    You always meant so very much
    And always will do too
    The fact that you’re no longer here
    Will always cause us pain
    But you’re forever in our hearts


    Did I ever tell you?
    How important you made me feel
    For all the times you make me smile,
    You were a friend that was truly real!

    For all the time that you spent
    Showing just how much you cared
    There are no words to thank you!
    For always being there.

    I pray that God will bless you
    With peace and joy that never parts
    May all the love you gave away
    Return to fill your heart!

    It was very nice to see the video that was put together for my aunt Cathy for her celebration of life. Would have loved to meet all of those who were close to her out west. She was a amazing person and will dearly be missed by all. Thank you to her friends who were there for her during her battle and to all those that were that during her last days. Thank you to you all.

    We will miss her so but I’m happy to know she isn’t in pain anymore and is with my dad , her brothers mom and dad.

    Love you aunt Cathy.
