Aunt Catherine will be missed. Sincerely. I have lots of memories while growing up involved in life with her and later in adult years visits. Time spent with her was never disappointing . when I had chances to visit it was just like time stood still and never aged her a bit ! Loving mom and dog mom , as well as a great aunt. Will miss you 😔

Cathy we will dearly miss your sweet soul. From the first time I met you nearly 40 years ago you have been the kindest, sweetest, most helpful sister (in-law) that anyone could hope for. I loved you from the first time we met when you came to Toronto to support your sister (Charlotte) during her neck surgery. You have always been there when we needed your help. We don't have enough words to describe how much we will miss you. We love you, we will miss your smile and we will see you again.

~ Hank Hellinga and Charlotte Risnyj-Hellinga
