July 1, 1972 – October 4, 2015
It is with great sadness that our families announce the passing of Cathy on Sunday October 4, 2015 after a courageous struggle with cancer.
She is survived by her spouse Geordon Nasadyk, son Glen, father Alan, brother Craig (Charlene) and their children Evan and David, brothers-in-law Graham (Frances), Garth (Trina) and their families, Geordon’s parents Gail and George as well as great aunt Kay Chapman, aunts Loretta Biffard, Margaret (Rod) Keech and Cheryl (Bud) Smith.
Cathy is predeceased by her mother Susan.
Cathy always enjoyed the outdoors and studied Fish and Wildlife Management at BCIT. Working as a fisheries technician on the BC coast gave Cathy an opportunity to work in the outdoors as well as the time to travel to exotic places.
Born in Vancouver and raised in Richmond, her adventurous spirit and love of skiing brought her to the Comox Valley. There she met Geordon, who shared her passion for skiing and travel. Cathy was lovingly welcomed into the Nasadyk family.
During the ski season, Cathy, Geordon and their friends could be found going back and forth between Mt. Cain and Mt. Washington. In the summer, they enjoyed walking their dog, Bentley, along the banks of the Puntledge River. They became dedicated parents with the arrival of Glen in February 2013.
Although Cathy bore the burden of her illness from early in motherhood, she was selfless, practical and positive in all situations. Her smile and fun-loving nature will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
Cathy’s family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all the physicians and medical practitioners who helped Cathy during her illness, particularly Dr. Nancy McFadden for her diligent care and humanity.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Comox Valley Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road, Courtenay on Saturday, October 17th at 2 pm with a reception to follow.
