CATTERSON

CATTERSON (Doerksen), Sylvia Roberta Sylvia was born on April 2, 1951 and passed away peacefully on November 4, 2005. She was predeceased by her parents, Robert and Sarah Catterson of Toronto, Ontario. Sylvia will be dearly missed by her partner for life, Rick Stanley of Parksville, B.C. She also leaves to mourn, her brothers, Jim (Judy) Catterson of Westbank, B.C., Marshall (Daphne) Catterson of Nanaimo, B.C., her sisters, Jean (Bill) Ridd of Georgetown, Ontario and Carol (David) Hacker of Toronto, Ontario. Sylvia’s passing is also a sad loss to her nieces and nephews, Marshall, Kevin, Bonnie, Sarah and Kathryn. There is a void in our home which is evident in how her cat, Patch and her dogs, Jasmine and Ushi continue to wait for her return. Sylvia was lovingly active with her extended family and made numerous good friends as she moved west across this country, having emigrated from Northern Ireland as a young girl. Sylvia was forever grateful to her special caregiver, her sister-in-law, Connie Barber, of Hopkins Landing, B.C. On behalf of Sylvia, Rick and her family wish to especially thank her surgeon, Dr. John Samphire of Victoria, B.C., Drs. Christine Jones and Jim Wilde of Victoria Hospice, Dr. Brian Calvin of Nanaimo, B.C. and all the special nurses, health care workers and volunteers in the Royal Jubilee Hospital, Victoria and Nanaimo Regional General Hospital Palliative Care Centres. Sylvia, you will be surely missed as your body vanishes from our lives, but be comforted to know that your spirit lives on and although we are all saddened by our loss, your sense of humour and love, will forever be cherished. If you wish, please make donations to your local Hospice Society. A celebration of Sylvia’s life will occur at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, November 12, 2005 at the Yates Funeral Service and Crematorium, 1000 Allsbrook Road, Parksville B.C., V9P 2A9.
