Catherine Louise Taylor

TAYLOR, Catherine Louise - 1950 - 2019 On Sunday, June 9, Cathy peacefully left this life from her home near Lionís Head, ON. Cathy was the beloved wife and best friend to Brian for almost 50 years; the daughter of Marguerite and Bert Vearncombe; sister to Reginald, Mary, and John; devoted mother of Jennifer, Stephanie and Paul; adored Nana of Arwen, Cedar, Jackson, Ember, Lilah, Trip, Claire and Keith. Cathy grew up in the Beaches in Toronto. She met Brian at UWO, and they spent most of their married life together in London, ON, except for two years in Rochester, MN. Only too recently, Cathy and Brian retired to beautiful Jacksonís Cove and the vibrant community of the Bruce Peninsula. Cathy treasured her family and her friends, Earl Grey tea, birds, wildflowers, ginger cats, golden dogs, good food and wine, nature walks, dark chocolate, a clever murder mystery, and Saturday mornings at the market. She shone at baking, making maple syrup, knitting, making things beautiful, taking care of others, and supporting local endeavours. Cathy faced her final illness with grace and grit. Her wish to finish her life journey at home was supported by family, local health care professionals, and her wonderful community. Thanks to all of you who have been with Cathy and Brian on this journey. There will be a ďCelebration of More LifeĒ for Cathy from 1:00 to 4:00 PM on Saturday, July 20th at the Rotary Hall, 59 Main Street, in Lionís Head, ON. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Cathyís name to the Lionís Head Hospital Auxiliary or the Bruce Trail Conservancy. Arrangements have been entrusted to DOWNS AND SON FUNERAL HOME , Hepworth. Condolences may be sent to the family through downsandsonfuneralhome.com13338438
