Catherine Arleen KRAHN

July 18, 1955-Mar. 14, 2010

It is with great shock and sadness we announce the sudden passing of our beloved wife, mother, and lifetime teacher, Cathy.

After a quiet morning preparing for her return to her class at Rosedale Elementary she passed away suddenly in the kitchen of her home with her husband Brian at her side.

Cathy was born in Val d’Or, Quebec but grew up mostly in Ontario. As a young woman married her first husband, Carl Krahn. She spent most of her life in the lower mainland, where she was involved with the theatre, teaching and sharing her creative skills. She was a generous person, giving of herself and her many talents.

She is mourned by her partner of 25 years, Brian Sweeney, her sons Erron and Kelly Sweeney, and her step-son Ryland Sweeney. She is predeceased by her first husband, Carl.

Her family consists of the many whose lives she touched in her community, her students, colleagues, and friends.

A celebration of Cathy’s life will be held on Saturday, March 20 at 11:00 am in the Theatre at University of the Fraser Valley.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the children’s charity of your choice, honoring Cathy’s life long and interrupted work with children.
