Catherine (Kay) Mutch

I wish to inform you that Catherine (Kay) Mutch of Comox B.C. has moved on, leaving her body July 5, 2014.

Kay had a wonderful life. She was born on a farm in Saskatchewan and spent her childhood and teen years helping her dad with the demands of the land and the animals. She enjoyed the farm, but as young people do, she moved off to the big city to find her future. There she met and married a handsome air force service man, John Richard (Dick) Bye. Kay and Dick had two children, Sandra and Ross and spent many years moving around Canada. Kay was always willing to go wherever the air force stationed Dick. The family eventually settled down in Wetaskiwin, Alberta on a small farm and then into town. Shortly after this, Dick’s sudden death left Kay to raise her two children alone. She did what she needed to do in finding a job and spent the next years nurturing and supporting her children. She also managed to fulfil her desire to have bigger experiences and travelled to Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Costa Rica, Cuba and several Caribbean Islands. Later in life she met and married Bruce Mutch and they settled in Comox B.C.

Kay was a very good mum, a good wife, and a good friend. She had an interesting way of creating humor in all situations. She became a grandmother of five and a great grandmother of eight.

Kay was always kind and respectful and was understandably well liked. By age 95 her body was getting worn out and life began to be less fun, especially after she fell and broke a hip. Although she still managed to pull off some good times with the assistance of a wonderful care giver – Eda Watts, the promise of a better life grew dim. Kay decided that was enough and stopped eating and drinking.

After reviewing her life and all wonderful things she accomplished Kay left her body and moved on in complete comfort and peace in the early morning July 5, 2014. She is missed by all who loved her.

In lieu of flowers, please go and do something you love doing and feel grateful that you are able to do it.
