Mandy Martin - May 16, 2022

Oh! The thrill of debate! Catherine was always up for that! She tolerated me in her Gore’s Landing Brownie pack - in fact was a blessing because she encouraged independence of thought and approach. Later, I remember lunches with she and my Mom in Cobourg and Port Hope, talking local issues/politics. Great joy - and fearless options. Catherine was a champion of our history and it’s value. Much love to Carol and Don (angels), Andy and extended family.

Carol Buttar - May 15, 2022
