Born April 7, 1950.
Catherine was born on a beautiful April day in Glasgow, Scotland, the first child of Douglas and Catherine Henderson.
Born a beautiful baby, Catherine grew to be a beautiful and wonderful woman in the family’s adopted country, Canada.
Catherine spent her formative years in Kamloops, going to school and eventually entering the workforce. It was in Kamloops where she began her career at the B.C. Telephone Co. Starting as an operator, Catherine soon became active within the ranks of the union, being elected on numerous occasions and eventually being elected to the position of treasurer. She remained with the union for a number of years, then returned back within the ranks at Telus (BC Tel) until her early retirement due to illness in 1998.
Catherine passed away peacefully in her home on Sept. 15, 2016.
She was predeceased by her father Douglas, mother Catherine and brother Philip.
Catherine is survived by her brother Douglas, sister in law Anita, nieces and nephews Michelle, Craig, and Danica, Corena and Derek, Trevor and Jennifer and by grand- nephews Parker, Alex and Moses and grand-niece Linden. Also, by loving cousins Gordon, Willie, Elizabeth, Eleanor, Karen and Jan, and by life long friend Janeene dePfyffer.
