May 1, 1942 - January 10, 2018
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Katarina Cavlek in Kamloops, BC on January 10, 2018 at the age of 75 years.
She will be sadly missed by her daughter Vesna and son Robert (Trisha), her pride and joy and only grandson Finn, sisters Francis (Vancouver) and Maria (Croatia), nieces and nephews Susan (Steve), Roman and Lora (Nicolas) of Vancouver and many more in Croatia, as well as many friends and relatives. She is predeceased by her husband Tom in 1984.
Katarina (Kathy) was born in Hodosan, Croatia in 1942 to a large and closely knit family. She immigrated to Canada in 1962 and settled with her husband in Kamloops, BC. They would have two children and would continue to raise them when they moved to Savona, BC in 1972. Kathy worked for Evans Products/Ainsworth Lumber for 35 years and happily retired in 2007. Kathy was ecstatic when she learned she would be a grandmother in 2011. Kathy enjoyed gardening, spending time at the lake, and going for long walks.
Prayers will be recited on Thursday, January 25th at 7:30 pm in Sacred Heart Cathedral (255 Nicola St.). Funeral Mass will be celebrated in the Cathedral on Friday, January 26th at 11:00 am with The Reverend Father Swann Kim celebrant.
Should friends and family desire, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
