Obituary of Cathy Clark

Clark, Mary Catherine (Cathy), 78 of Georgetown, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, April 15th, 2022, surrounded by love and family. Cathy is survived by her devoted daughter Allison & spouse Mike, loving son John & daughter-in-law Carolyn. She was the proudest Nannie to grandchildren Chrissy & Jennie, Catie, Jack, Lily, Sam, Keith & Bobbi. She treasured her nieces "Sweet" Sarah, Cheryl & Karen Ann, and was grateful for the love of extended family and many dear, dear friends. We want to thank each of her friends that became family, you kept her spirits up with daily messages of encouragement, patience and love, you have a special place in our hearts forever. She loved being a mum, always warm and affectionate and endlessly patient, loved us unconditionally and believed that we are perfect just the way we are. There was never a moment we doubted her love, such a gift. She passed this on in later years to our spouses, Mike and Carolyn, each having a very special place in her heart. Her favourite and most special role was as a Nannie to her "grands" as she affectionately called them. She patiently doted on all of them - always willing to do crafts, colour, bake goodies, get down on the ground to play cars, read books, go for walks to gather treasures and dig in the garden. She never expected them to be perfect or tidy, she was always fine with making a mess because it meant fun and freedom to be a kid. As everyone was growing older she loved watching them in their activities and performances, hearing about school and seeing big milestones like driving, graduations and first jobs. She loved hearing about their adventures, seeing the girls' freshly painted nails (always hoping to see a little sparkle in them), joking and dancing, making TikToks and funny Snapchat videos, she loved following them on social media, never able to resist commenting and praising them. They had her full attention at all times and she loved each of them dearly for their own special qualities. Mum loved to crochet, this last year or so she was on a mission and completed 8 blankets, and was still working on one for Lily up until the week before she passed. As I sit here writing this I'm under the last blanket she made for me and can hear her reminding me "there is love in every stitch". She was always a huge dog lover and adored our sweet pup Rosco, who brought joy to her every day with his unconditional love and loyal companionship. They could often be overheard "chatting" many times in the day, followed by doing his routine of various tricks for a treat. He barely left her side in the days before she passed, curled up on her bed or floor next to her. Loving her people was undoubtedly her greatest strength and it's so clear by all the stories we are hearing. Mum made people feel special and loved like you were the centre of her universe or the most important part of her day. She believed in the good of everyone and cheered all of us on in whatever we were doing. It makes us so happy to see the impact she made for people in such simple ways that most of us take for granted. We would like to thank the wonderful nurses, staff and doctors at Credit Valley Hospital, and especially her home care nurse Mae who came to our home every week for the last 8 months, not only to check on her physically but to give her such thoughtful care and encouragement. A Celebration of Life will be held for family and friends at the Jones Funeral Home on Sunday, April 24th, 2022 from 2-4pm, in the Trafalgar Room. We would love everyone to wear whatever they feel comfortable in, but to not feel like they need to wear black because it would also be lovely to see a room full of colour. In lieu of flowers, donations to the CASHH (Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills www.cancerassistance.org) are appreciated, they were a wonderful support throughout the past year to Mum. A special thank you to Julie & Laurie for their help and support. ~~~~~~~~~~~
