  1. I am very sorry for your loss Cheryl, Heather and families. Cathy was a great person to bowl against
    and an even better person to talk to each week before our league started play. She loved to talk about
    her Leafs, the Tigers and of course, her grandchildren. I will miss that very much! Please know that
    she is free from pain now and bowling 300 every game (and all the drinks are free)!!

    Boumeester and Meredith Families

    My heart is heavy today as I read the news of Cathy’s death. Please accept my heartfelt sympathies . I met Cathy when we played ball together, and I have so many happy memories of those years. We shared many a laugh on the field and in the Montreal House after games . I admired her competitive spirit, her sharp and sarcastic wit and her love for her family. In the years after ball we didn’t see each other often , but when we did it was usually at the grocery store where we would pull our shopping carts to the side and have a good catchup like no time had passed. I will always be thankful that I had the opportunity to get to know her and to call her a friend. I will cherish her memory for years to come.
