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.
