Gibson, Catherine Aileen (nee Munro) May 9, 1932 - February 1, 2019 Cathy died peacefully surrounded by her family. She is survived by her six children: Joan (Brian), Nini (Rick), Beedz, Tessa (Mike), William and Alix (John), 20 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Predeceased by her first husband Jim in 1971, her second husband Peter Gregory in 2011, sister Mary-Frances (Gerry), her in-laws Bill (Joan), Nini (Don) and Ann (Jerry). Cathy was raised in Vancouver, attended high school at Crofton House and graduated from UBC in Dietetics. Cathy singlehandedly raised us, spending winters skiing at Whistler and summers at Cultus Lake, Sakinaw Lake with the Stewarts and Yellow Point and Lasqueti Island with the Gordons. Mom uniquely used humour in parenting - including trips to the laundry room for bad manners at the dinner table. All joking aside, she was the most influential person in our lives. Cathy had a trove of lifelong friends acquired during her early life in Vancouver, the New Westminster 'Mott Crescent' neighbourhood, her numerous bridge clubs, Scottish country dancing and the Vancouver Fiddle Orchestra. Mummmmm was the 'Queen of grammar' - best known for her perfect pronunciation of 'Tsawwassen' and 'often' (do NOT pronounce the 't'). A master of cribbage - she thoroughly believed in 'Muggins' and delighted in skunking her children and grandchildren. We will continue the annual Christmas gingerbread party and sing-a-long where she will be especially missed as the 'Five Golden Rings'. A Funeral Mass and Celebration of Cathy's Life will be held on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 2465 Crown Street in Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, please play a game of cribbage in her honour. Published on February 2, 2019 in The Vancouver Sun and or The Province, BC
