Catherine was born in Quebec City in 1947 to John Maroney and Irene Guillet. From a young age, Kate demonstrated an incredible talent for music. She attended the University of McGill and was an accomplished pianist.  She lived in Montreal for a number of years before moving to Ottawa, where she worked for Veteran Affairs.  Her friends and coworkers will remember her for her diligence and for her welcoming personality as well as for the kindness and respect with which she treated veterans, occasionally playing them a song on the piano during celebratory events.

Cathy’s bubbly, energetic personality, her generous heart, words of wisdom and her wicked sense of humour lit up our lives.  She will be deeply missed.

Gone but not Forgotten. Always in our hearts.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, please make a donation in memory of Catherine to the SPCA, Diabetes Canada, the Fibromyalgia Wellspring Foundation or a cat shelter close to you.
