My family and I will always be forever grateful for Kathy's deep compassion and immeasurable kindness through the years. As one of the refugee families she supported, her commitment and heart allowed us to hope for better and thrive in unimaginable ways in Canada. May she rest in perfect peace and may you all be blanketed in comfort as you sorrow this tremendous loss.

I'm sending my heartfelt condolences to Kathryn and George on the death of your mom. Kathy and I were next door neighbours in our youth and we shared the same birthday! My earliest memories of your mom are her kind nature and helpful attitude towards me. She carried the same attitude throughout her life especially with your dad in the refugee work that was close to their hearts. When I attended Bill's funeral some of the pews of St. Mary's church were filled with grateful people they had helped bring to Canada. Kathy joined our prayer group and we had many years of laughter and praying together, special memories for me. Love never dies and the love you have for your mom and the love I know she had for you- because she would talk about it at prayer group- will live on in your hearts. May God's comfort surround you and your family and bring your peace. Blessings, Bev

Sincere condolences to Kathy’s family. As a former parishioner at St. Mary’s I was truly blessed to have known both Kathy and Bill and will never forget the love and kindness they gave.

Aunt Cathy was the sweetest person one could ever hope to know.

I relish every memory I have of her - from trips to Bob-Lo, Christmas parities on Lincoln, or enjoying a wee bit of bourbon together.

Cathy and Bill always made guests, friends and family feel appreciated, welcome and wanted and I will always remember them fondly and with love.

My deepest condolences to George, Kathy and their families.

Dear George and Heather, Kathy and Gary and family,
Sending sincerest condolences to you all. I was sorry to see of your dear Mom’s passing. She was truly one of the most caring and giving people I have ever met. A true example of a kind and generous person. I have such fond memories of her and your dad at St. Mary’s years ago. Though many years have passed, I will never forget their kindness to others. Kathie Drummond, Toronto

We all felt that Kathy was a member of our family--because we grew to love her first as our brother Gary's mother-in-law, who raised our wonderful sister-in-law Kathy, and then as the loving and caring grandmother to our nephews Adam and Brendan and sweet niece Sarah. Many family gatherings over the years included conversations with this beautiful woman who was always smiling, intelligent, soft spoken but firm in her integrity. We will all miss her.

Kathy and Bill were a big part of our family life at St Mary's Church and Kathy later at St Mark's. They were an embodiment of Christ and His kindness and compassion. They gave tirelessly of themselves to the Churches, the children and the Refugee Committee and are responsible for the immigration of many individuals and families through their devoted work with refugees both bringing them to Canada and being there for them when they arrived and settled.
I have thought of you and her so often these past years since we last saw her at St Mark's. I know she just adored her children and grandchildren.
I wish her peace as she rejoins your wonderful father and I wish all of you wonderful memories as you mourn the loss of such an amazing person.
Warm regards,
Nancy and Ron Shulgan

Kathy was a courageous woman, fearless and fair without measure. She told a story of going to the theatre in Detroit. It was an all black crowd and not necessarily a good neighbourhood. She told me that later, friends were shocked at her unconcern for possible safety issues. "Why would anything happen to us?" Integrity and ambition to make the world a better place. Well done!

Kathy was a lady who quietly managed to help so many without fuss or expecting anything in return. She was someone I admired immensely and I am a better person for knowing her. May she rest in peace.
