It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my sister, Cathy Lou Crawford. She was born in Chatham 56 years ago to our late parents Judith & Thomas Crawford, attended school in Blenheim and at St. Clair College in Chatham. Aside from myself, she is survived by our step brother Doug Peel, our Aunts Carol (Walt) Korpela and Sally Mandeno (Dick McIlroy) as well as our cousins Jeremy Korpela, Wendy Wells, Nicole Segeren, Matthew Mandeno and Nancy Cira. She was predeceased by our Aunt Marilyn & Uncle Al Latner.
Cathy was a kind and caring soul who loved animals just as much as she loved people. For many years she worked at the OSPCA in Chatham during the week and on the weekends, she would tend to the farm animals at Southwestern Regional Centre. She made many good friends during her lifetime and will be remembered by many for her free spirit and bubbly personality. Unfortunately, health issues interrupted her career in the animal world but she was able to continue caring for them in her home in Chatham. There was always food and water on the front porch for hungry kittens and a shelter to keep them warm when it was cold.
Cathy, we will miss you and you will never be forgotten,
Love, your brother Mike
