Kathy’s Family Lived in Eganville, On. until 1946, moved to North bay, On. until 1950, moved to Owen Sound, On. until 1954 then the Family moved to Toronto. She stayed in close touch with Wayne, Isabell, Tom and many others from the Howard and McGuire clans. Kathy went to St Joseph Private Girls school, where she met her best friend Roberta. On graduation of High School, she worked in clerical for the Provincial Government. Met her sailor Ron and got married. A business offer moved Kath & Ron to Jamaica where Christine and Ronnie were born. Returning to Canada in 1965 with two young children in tow Kathy was always there for her family. Dealing with two unruly children and having dinner ready for whatever time Ron got home from his long days at work. They were a perfect match in many ways.Kathy was NOT a great cook and Ron is a trained sailor who will eat anything and everything put in front of him. Kathy was also very much a worrier. Always concerned for everyone else but herself. Your worries are over now Mother! You can finally Rest In Peace!
