Obituary of Catherine Irene Edwards
It is with deep sorrow but gratitude for a long life well-lived, that we announce the passing of our mother, Catherine Irene Edwards (nee Duggan), on September 4th, 2021, at St. Davids in her 86th year. She will be lovingly remembered by her beloved husband of 66 years, Marvin Edwards, by her children: Mark Edwards (Wendy), Pam Edwards (Bruce), Kevin Edwards (Lorraine), Paula Wilson (Rob), Pandora Marsh (Brad), and grandchildren Spencer Edwards, Tamara Edwards, Connor Marsh, Logan Marsh, and Cooper Marsh. She will also be missed by her brother Greg Duggan, and sister Theresa Crosgrey.
Catherine was born and raised in St. Catharines. She lived in Winnipeg for a short period of time before returning to Niagara to finish her schooling. She met her husband, Marvin at the Garden City Arena and never looked back. Catherine persevered throughout the years packing up the children with pets in tow, to wherever her husband was playing hockey. The family moved 32 times while following his hockey career. Dad has always said “Catherine was the BEST COACH I ever had”!
Catherine was instrumental in starting several chapters of the Red Hat Society, enjoying many outings up until recently. The family is very grateful for their support over these last few days, also to their friends and residents of Creekside Estates.
Funeral Arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). As per her wishes cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be announced at a later date. Donations to Juravinski Cancer Centre or the Alzheimer Society of Niagara in remembrance of Catherine would be appreciated. Online condolences may be made on Catherine’s tribute page found at EssentialsNiagara.com.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
