Cathy Hobbs

February 26, 1964 - May 13, 2012


HOBBS, Cathryn Janet

Cathryn Hobbs passed away peacefully on May 13, 2012.

Cathryn was born in Lachine, Quebec on February 26, 1964. She spent her childhood growing up in Ottawa, Ghana, Jamaica and Belize until finally settling in the Vancouver area and then the last ten years in Duncan.

Alcoholism is a terrible affliction that affects so many people. It starts out as a fun friend going with you to parties, but overtime, slowly wedges itself into your life until ultimately it takes control and dictates your every action. Cathy was a very strong woman and it was never thought that anyone or anything could ever overpower her but she was no match for alcoholism.

She was a loving mother and daughter. She was a wonderful wife and best friend. Her infectious sense of humour affected everyone she met. She will be missed dearly by all those that knew her.

She is survived by her daughters Taylor and Rachel, mother Christine, brothers Patrick and Barry, and husband of twenty years Robert Farrell.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that a donation be made to the BC Cancer Agency 100-394 Duncan St. Duncan, BC V9L 3W4
