Catherine Mitchell (nee Legge) passed peacefully away at Glenbrook Lodge, St. John’s, NL March 24, 2021. She will be lovingly remembered by daughter Beverly (Loyola), daughter Janet, son Dave (Cathy), and grandsons Shayne and Ricky. Cathy will be sadly missed by sister Sheila (George), brother Bernard (Beth), and sister Marilyn (Neal), sister-in-law Barbara, along with many nieces and nephews. She had a special place in her heart for her niece Lynn and great-niece Myaella, both of whom hold dear memories of times spent with her.
Cathy is predeceased by her husband George (1996) and partner Peter (2014), her sisters Edith and Elsie, and brothers Charles (Bud), Robert, and Fred.
Cathy was the middle child of Leola and Wlliam Legge, and grew up in Robinsons, NL as part of an extended family with grandparents, aunts, and uncles, all of whom played distinctive roles in her life. She was involved with her church, had many friends, and was known to be a wonderful hostess who loved to entertain and enjoy the company of others.
Thank you to the staff of Glenbrook Lodge who took care of her, and especially those who gave her the gift of time—listening to her stories, joking with her, curling her hair, varnishing her nails, and helping her look her best—all the little “Big” things that enhanced her quality of life.
Cathy’s ashes will be taken to Robinsons at a later time, where her wish to be buried alongside family members will be honored.
