Cathy Gates

Obituary of Cathy Lynn Gates

With heavy hearts, the family announces the passing of Cathy on March 17, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 59. Cathy will be lovingly remembered by her mother Elizabeth; her siblings Larry (Elaine), Grant (Lina), Bonnie, Betty Ann (Roger), Nancy, Bradley (Lynn), Lynda (Chris); as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews; and especially her two fur babies Barzik and Pip. Cathy was a private person with a gentle soul and a big heart, always ready to help others. Cathy's love for animals led her to a rewarding career at the Tuxedo Animal Hospital where she will be dearly missed by her co-workers and clients. When not hard at work, she enjoyed reading and various hobbies as well as spending time visiting her Mom and family on the weekends in Treherne, MB. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the Buhler Cancer Centre, Victoria Hospital and Riverview Health Centre Palliative Care ward. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation or to Winnipeg Humane Society. In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held. A Celebration of Life with family will take place at a later date.
