Catherine Horn Davidson November 17, 1910 - December 17, 2004 Funeral arrangements by Chapel Lawn Funeral Home It is with sadness the family and friends of Kay announce her sudden death on December 17, 2004 from complications arising from a fall. Her death will leave an enormous hole in our lives but we feel blessed as she left us with a host of beautiful memories and her wish to be completely independent to the last was granted. Born November 17, 1910, Kay was the only child of Thomas and Catherine Davidson. Her younger years were spent on a farm near Roblin, MB, where her love of the outdoors and passion for horseback riding were developed. Her father was a field representative for the National Film Board who traveled the province extensively so it was left to Kay to care for her mother who suffered a debilitating stroke at a young age. Kay worked as the executive secretary to the Director of Taxation for the Government of Canada until her retirement in 1975. Almost every day of her working life, Kay walked three miles to and from work, summer and winter, which kept her in excellent health well into her 90's. Perhaps the reason she walked was to "save wear and tear" on her beloved pink and white “mint” 1955 Chevy Belair which she eventually parted with and proudly watched as it was displayed in the Shriner’s parade. Kay attended faithfully the monthly “taxation retiree’s luncheon” where she enjoyed the company of her colleagues and friends. An avid sports fan, Kay had lots to contribute to any conversation on statistics, players and strategy. She was known to shoot a mean game of pool, on her tiptoes of course. Kay often wondered in her 94th year why she was still here while so many of her contemporaries were gone. Her family told her that it was to inspire those of us who followed to live with the same feisty independence that she had shown. She will be sadly missed by her cousins Lena Vincent of Victoria; Bob and David (Pat), who took such good care of her in her later years; as well as Arlene (Larry); Bryan (Mary) and Tom (Mary) of Victoria; special friends Muriel Combs of Vancouver, Doreen McCormick, Aleen Doney, Hazel Haines and others too numerous to mention. Her beloved cousins, William, George (Mabel) and Harry Vincent, whom she missed terribly, predeceased her. We loved you, Kay. Rest in peace. At Kay’s request no service will be held. Cremation has taken place and Kay will rest with her parents at Chapel Lawn. A private gathering of family and friends will take place in celebration of her life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society, 5 Kent St., Wpg, MB R2L 1X3 or charity of your choice.
