Catherine Sinclair Catt

Cathy was born in Garrochoran, Scotland on September 13th, 1937. She immigrated to Canada in 1966 and has lived in Lumby for the past 43 years.

Cathy was taken from us on December 4th, 2014. She was surrounded by her family who loved her very much.

Cathy loved music and dancing. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren having tea parties and singing them off to sleep. She loved all of her family here and in Scotland.

Cathy spent endless hours as Secretary and President of the Lumby Women’s Institute and enjoyed travelling to all the meetings and gatherings and everyone she met along the way.

She enjoyed her time hiking, fishing and camping with Charlie. Her pies and trifle will be truly missed.

Cathy is predeceased by her mother Janet McNiven, her father Duncan McNiven, brother Hamish McNiven, sisters Barbara McCluskey and Mary Fisher and son-in-law Lloyd Greenwald.

She is survived by her loving and caring husband Charles Catt, sisters Jenny Coombs and Isobel McNiven and her brother Duncan McNiven. Her son Alistair Bain (Sharon), daughters Jennifer Greenwald and Helen Schweb, 8 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and the many who called her “Auntie Cathy”.

She will be dearly missed by all she has touched throughout her life.

A service in celebration of Cathy’s life will be announced at a later date.

Please make a donation in Cathy’s name to the Canadian Diabetes Association or a charity of your choice in lieu of flowers.
