SHUTE, Catherine (Shortall)


It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom, Grandma, Gaba and Great-Grandma. Catherine passed away on September 22, 2011 in the comfort of her own home with family by her side.  She will be greatly missed by her daughter Ann, sons Stephen (Janet) and Philip (Larisa), daughter-in-law Margaret Pollitt, grandchildren Shamess, Meaghan, Kaelan, Liam, Brodie, Keiran, Devon, Tavis, Alex and Tamara, and her two great-grandchildren Elena and Silas as well as many nieces and nephews.


Catherine was born on July 21, 1923 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.   She was predeceased by her parents Thomas and Angela Shortall, her twin brother Reginald, and her husband of 62 years, Brian.


A very special thanks to the wonderful team of workers and nurses from Home and Community Care.  Without your assistance, kindness and compassion, Mom wouldn’t have been able to stay at home. 


A funeral Mass will be held at Christ the King Catholic Church, 1599 Tunner Drive, Courtenay on Friday, September 30, 2011 at 11:00 a.m.. Cremation will follow. 


In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
