Mary Catherine "Cathy" Janssen (nee Lonergan), formerly of Fenlon Falls, passed away peacefully in her daughter's arms at Chapman House Residential Hospice in Owen Sound on Saturday, March 27, 2021 in her 82nd year.
Cathy was a wonderful Mother, who will be immensely missed by her daughter Tara (James "Jim") Turnbull of Hanover. Cherished Grandma to her 3 "little boys", Elliott, Howard and Ryan Turnbull. She will be fondly remembered by Manfred Janssen and Marie Louise Boylan of Whitehorse, YK. Much loved sister to Helen (Larry) Edwards of Burlington, ON and Cherryl Day of North York, ON. Aunt Katie will be greatly missed by her many nieces and nephews, along with their families all across Canada. Predeceased by her loving husband Heinrich Janssen (2016), her parents Lex and Bess Lonergan and her beloved brother-in-law Warde Day.
Tara wishes to thank the Dr.'s, Nurses and the support staff of Chapman House in Owen Sound for all their outstanding care and compassion. Their consistent dedication allowed Cathy to meet Henry again with the dignity that she so very much deserved. A huge thank you to all of Cathy's friends and the staff from the Minds in Motion program with the Alzheimer's Society of Grey Bruce for being there when she needed some laughs and a listening ear.
