Passed away peacefully at Yarmouth Regional Hospital surrounded with family by her side. After losing a long battle with cancer.
Cathy was born in Plympton, Nova Scotia to Patricia Wagner (Amero) and the late Carl Wagner. She is survived by her husband Eben of 50 years together and married for 41 of them, children: John, Melinda McCleave (Chris) and David (Charlotte), siblings: Yvonne (Ralph), Pam (Stanley), Mark, Susan, Clyde (Michelle) and Peter (Lynette), in-laws: Maria Slater, Roy and Theresa Sabean, and Stella Cowland. Her grandchildren who were her life Tristan, Emily, Josie, Brooke, Sierra, Nathan, Layla, Alexis, Luca and Lana and many nieces and nephews.
Cathy at the age of 15 met Eben. Their first date at the Grand Pre Westling set the tone for the next 50 years. The two of them worked hard to make a happy home and gave back to the community whether for cadets, benefits, fire department, church or family/friends. She was known for being a fantastic baker and cook. She loved all the gatherings at the park, camp ground, her home or family reunions.
Cathy will be remembered for always being very honest, you never had to guess what was on her mind. She loved with all her heart and showed this through spoiling her grandkids whenever possible and always sticking up for her kids over Eben.
She made many friends while working in the clams and Tideview. She enjoyed her time more at Tideview when she was able to work beside her daughter. Since Cathy retired and knowing time is precious her and Eben took advantage of travelling around NS, camping, shopping, visiting grandkids and family.
The only comfort for Cathy was knowing she would be reunited with her Goddaughter and niece Tracy Cormier (Mullen).
A service for all will be on Thursday, March 16th at 11:00am at Saint
Peter’s Anglican Church Weymouth North, officiated by Barry Faulkner.
Reception to follow at the Plympton and Gilbert’s Cove Volunteer Fire Department.
Burial will be held at a later date when it is warm.
