Catherine Ann Sutherland
November 15th, 1944 – July 12th, 2017

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Catherine Ann Sutherland,
peacefully at home after a courageous battle with cancer.
She will be missed by her beloved husband, Michael Parry;
her children Emma Parry (Joe Falcone), James Parry;
her grandchildren Kathryn (Taylor), Rachel, Michael and Sara.
Predeceased by her parents Donald Sutherland and Clara (nee  Nickerson),
and her brother Neil (Elizabeth) Sutherland. Catherine is survived by her sister Janet Rawding (late Ted)
and her nieces and nephews Mary, Mark (Vickie), Scott, Don (Patsy), Paul (Wanda)
and Brian (Cyndy Allen); and numerous great nieces and nephews.

Catherine was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Port Mouton and Halifax, Nova Scotia
following the early death of her father. Catherine graduated from Mount Allison University in 1966
with a degree in Mathematics and Physics. She enjoyed a 30 year career as a federal public servant at
Employment Insurance Canada. She resided in Montreal, Germany, Gander, Toronto and finally in her dream home,
which she designed, on Pleasant Bay in Consecon, Ontario.  Catherine was very active in the community; participating
in the Hillier Women’s Institute, the Trenton and Quinte Curling Clubs, the Barcoven Golf Club and local bridge clubs.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff of BGH, KGH, TMH, visiting nurses and personal support workers,
who all supported us through her treatment and made it possible for her to remain in her home until the end.

At Catherine’s request there will not be a funeral.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday September 24th, 2017
