Obituary

Catherine or as most know her, Cathie, left us Sunday, Oct 27th after a hard-fought
battle with cancer. She was 52 years young and so full of life. She was a very giving person,
generous to a fault with her time, energy and love. She will be missed by many, leaving a hole in
their lives.
Cathie did her undergraduate studies at Tufts University, majoring in Social work and
psychology. After 4 grueling years she decided to further her education by applying to Boston
University for her Masters Degree. She completed her 2 years at Boston University and started
working in Boston, pursuing her dream.
On a fateful trip out to Denver to house/dog sit for her cousin while they vacationed in
Australia, she fell in love with Denver and immediately made plans to move there to pursue her
career. She was never satisfied with the work she did, always looking to do more, trying new
avenues to help others in different circumstances. She felt Denver was the place she could do
the most good.
Cathie worked as a social worker for the state of Colorado. She was drawn to helping
others who were less fortunate than her to try to give them hope and a helping hand to get
them on a healing path. She worked at Mount View Youth Services Center for many years, as
well as several hospitals as the on staff Social Worker and finally at Colorado Mental health
Institute at Fort Login where she retired to fight her cancer at home.
She had a great affinity for animals, caring for three dogs until they passed and then
adopting Willow to help fill the void in the house and as a trusty companion for her mom. She
loved horses and often talked about getting a horse one day. She had to settle for riding lessons
locally because owning a horse was too much for her considering how much of herself she gave
to others on a daily basis. But she loved to ride and even in her troubled times, after the riding
lessons she was flying high, tired but rejuvenated to carry on another week.
Cathie leaves behind in Denver her mother Marie Therese, with whom she lived and her
little angel, Willow along with her many friends. She leaves behind her brother Charles and his
wife Carrie and son Rick in California and her cousins John and Chantal in Montreal, along with
her friends all over the country and the world. She will be missed.
