ROY, Catherine Ruth

November 23, 1954 – November 30, 2021

We regretfully announce the passing of Catherine Ruth Roy of Sundre, Alberta on November 30th 2021. Catherine was surrounded by her family and passed away peacefully at home.

Catherine, an extremely loving and dedicated mother to her only child Jessica, was brought into this world on November 23, 1954, to Edgar James Beachamp Morris and Vera Wilcock in Chatham England. She later moved to Canada. After graduating from Lord Beaver Brook High School in Calgary, Catherine dedicated her life to her family. She lived many places and had many different careers, but her truest passion was always being creative. Catherine was an avid artist and lover of all things imaginative. Her favourite medium was stained glass however she was also a very gifted painter. Her creativity was evident in everything she did. Catherine’s kindness and generous heart was what guided her to so many connections. She touched so many lives, but none more than her family’s. Catherine will be greatly missed and forever loved.

Catherine is survived by her daughter, son-in-law, husband, siblings and her grandchildren.

Catherine requested no services be held and that her ashes be spread where she called home. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to your favourite charity.

The Blessing”

In the morning when you rise
I bless the sun, I bless the skies
I bless your lips, I bless your eyes
My blessing goes with you

In the nighttime when you sleep
Oh I bless you while a watch I keep
As you lie in slumber deep
My blessing goes with you

This is my prayer for you
There for you, ever true
Each, every day for you
In everything you do

And when you come to me
And hold me close to you
I bless you
And you bless me, too

When your weary heart is tired
If the world would leave you uninspired
When nothing more of love’s desired
My blessing goes with you

When the storms of life are strong
When you’re wounded, when you don’t belong
When you no longer hear my song
My blessing goes with you

This is my prayer for you
There for you, ever true
Each, every day for you
In everything you do

And when you come to me
And hold me close to you
I bless you
And you bless me, too

I bless you
And you bless me, too

    Jessica, I just came across the FB announcement of Catherine’s passing. I knew her from her time in Creston, and although not in touch for a long time, I often thought of her, her generous nature and artistic talent especially with stained glass. And so I will remember her.
