Always will be Auntie Katherine to me. A very lovely woman and neighbour who invited the neighbourhood kids in to watch the Toronto Santa Clause Parade in the 50's. RIP.

Had the pleasure of knowing Katherine when she was a justice of the peace. Her door was always open and lots of conversations with her and Harry over the years. Brought me a gift when my first son was born and that always mention a lot to me. Still think of both of them every time I drive by the White House on colborne st. Rip miss k.

Auntie Kay and Uncle Harry were wonderful, generous and the most fun of people. They were the top priority on the “must meet” list when Sheila and I became serious and they welcomed me into the family with open arms. On the big day, Harry walked Sheila down the aisle and Kay performed the ceremony.
Sheila, Russel and I enjoyed visiting their Lindsay home. One such visit Kay introduced me to the martini. I’ve never looked back. LOL.
God bless you Auntie Kay. It was an honour and a privilege. While your time with us seemed short, we know Uncle Harry has been waiting long enough.
