Aitken, Catherine Mary

July 16, 1922 ~ January 29, 2015

Born July 16, 1922 in Comox, Catherine, more affectionately known as Mamie, passed away peacefully at her home on January 29, 2015.

Pre-deceased by her sister, Cherry, Mamie is lovingly remembered by her longtime friend John Roxburgh, friends Carol and Dave Autio, Noah and Lindanne Farrell, Denis and Helen Benard, Heather Aitken and her husband Ian Westover and numerous other friends and relatives who shared many special moments with her throughout the years.

In her early years, Mamie worked at CIBC and then CFB Comox in the Civilian Personnel Dept. From where she retired.

During her lifetime, Mamie loved sewing, cooking, golfing, skiing, and dancing. She won first prize 14 years in a row for her Jelly Roll recipe in the Comox Valley Fall Fair. Her love of dancing was a highlight of her social activities, along with her membership in the Soroptimist Club with her sister.

A special thanks to Omnicare for the professional and caring service the caregivers provided to Mamie in her final years.

A Celebration of Mamie’s Life will be held at her home at 543-5th Street in Courtenay on Friday, February 6th, 2015 at 1:00PM. Please come for light refreshments and reminiscences. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the SPCA.
