CATHERINE MARIE HOLMES

On May 30, 2021, after a lengthy illness, Cathy passed peacefully, surrounded by her family.
Cathy is survived by her husband Gord of Arnes, MB, daughter Bonnie, son John, son Michael (Hope), grandchildren, Phim, Malia and Anisha, brother Michael (Terry) and sister Maryann (Odaro).
Nothing mattered more to Cathy than family. Every day she showered her kids and grandchildren with her boundless love, and her emotional strength kept her family strong. Cathy was a world traveler having made a dozen trips to countries overseas and numerous Harley trips with Gord throughout Canada and the US. She was an avid reader and found time every day for her books. Cathy was passionate about gardening and spent her summers in Arnes filling the yard with flowers. She was a talented mosaic creator and her works filled the walls of her home.
Cathy was born and raised in Toronto, and completed high school and her teaching degree in Winnipeg. She worked for many years at St. Emile Catholic school, followed by several years at Robert Smith in Selkirk.
Cremation has taken place, and a funeral will take place once Covid restrictions will allow a full church service, so all can attend.
In lieu of flowers, friends can make a donation in Cathy's name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.
