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

Very sorry to hear of the loss of Cathy. We were in Real Estate together several years ago. I also battled with alcoholism, but was very fortunate to arrest this hideous disease. My best wishes to the family.

Rob and family: Even though I didn’t work with Cathy at the airport, I always enjoyed chatting when we met at work funtions. I always found that she had very interesting things to say and she seemed a fun and eclectic person. Sympathies and Regards, Liz Bodegom

Robert, my thoughts are with you and your family.

I enjoyed working with Cathy so many years ago at VIA. Both her smile and sarcasm were always close to the surface.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Robert, and your family. Cathy was so much fun to work with, and to learn from. She was a spitfire who gave it her all, and enjoyed life. My days working with Cathy are incredibly memorable, and I am so sorry for your loss.
