Catherine Annie Strand
October 5, 1912 – June 5, 2014
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of
Catherine Strand. Cathie was born in Victoria, B.C. and grew up on the Queen Charlotte Islands. In 1932 she moved to Prince Rupert to find employment. Here she met and married Carl Strand and they had two sons.
In 1975 Cathie and Carl moved to Campbell River and spent many happy years in retirement.
When Summit Residences opened Cathie returned to Prince Rupert and spent her final years socializing with family and friends.
Predeceased by her husband Carl in 1996, Cathie is survived by her brother Jim Carmichael, sons Robert (Sharon) and James (Mary); Grandchildren Greig (Andree), Shane (Jayme), Sara (John), Kim (Jade), David (Debra); Great grandchildren Justin, Meagan, Kaytlin, Kacey, Emilie, Ali, Dominic, Lauryn, Keely, Isaac, Nadya, Parker, Morgan and Davis and many nieces and nephews.
A special thank you to Dr. Kloppers, Dr. Tse and nursing staff on the third floor for their kindness and care given to Cathie. Our sincere appreciation to the staff and friends at Summit Residences for the help and friendship shown to our mother.
Cathie will be remembered by all who passed through her home and shared in a meal prepared in her kitchen.
A celebration of life will be held at the Crest Hotel, Sunday July 20, 2014 from 2 – 4 pm.
