A graduate of Port Arthur Collegiate Institute, Catherine then entered St. Joseph School of Nursing, graduating in 1948. She worked her entire career at St. Joseph’s Hospital, first in Maternity; then teaching in the School of Nursing, working in Staff Development and finally Occupational Health and Safety. Catherine furthered her education by taking Education at Western University and was a member of the first post-graduate class in the Bsc Nursing program at Lakehead.
Singing at church since the age of 4, Catherine also shared her gift at countless weddings and funerals and with several choirs; the 1st Oratorio choir, Corpus Christi choir, Interlink and others. For this she was awarded the Exceptional Achievement Award by the City of Thunder Bay, 2011. She entertained at many Christmas party or fundraisers with beautiful renditions of her favourites, especially “O Holy Night” and “New York, New York”. She never stopped singing.
Catherine was fortunate to have been able to travel to exotic places, including Argentina, Australia, Fiji, Jamaica and Europe. But most especially to Ireland to visit her numerous cousins, by whom she is deeply missed. As she well be missed by so many.
We would especially like to thank the staff at the Walford for the many years of loving care Catherine received. The Walford truly became her second home.

A beautiful lady with a beautiful voice. I remember her from when I was a young child going to St Andrew's church daily with my nanny Gertrude Phillip's.
May she rest in peace.
