It is with deep sadness that the family of Catherine Colwell announces her passing on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at the age of 73. Cathy passed away peacefully at The Moncton Hospital following a short battle with cancer, with her family by her side.


Born on March 22, 1950 in Sackville, NB, she was the daughter of the late Kathleen Eudavilla (Corbett) Beal and Norman Edward Beal.


Cathy was a graduate of Mount Allison University, where she was also employed until her retirement. She was a volunteer for St. John Ambulance as well as a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #26, Sackville. Cathy enjoyed trips to PEI, lobster rolls, gardening, bird watching, Rockport tours, music and dancing. Cathy was compassionate and always appreciated others who showed her kindness and care when she needed it. She was a proud Frosty Hollow girl, was well-known in the community and was an outgoing person who lived her life to the fullest. Cathy especially loved spending time with her girls and her grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
