It is with sad hearts we announce the passing of Mary Cathcart (nee Halpin), who died peacefully at Providence Villa in Scarborough on Wednesday 13 September 2023.

In 1953 she emigrated to Canada where she and her husband raised their family.
She is remembered with love by her children Ivor (Virginia), Yvonne (Zafar), Myra (Doug), Denise, Brian (Teresa) and Pauline (Don); as well as her grandchildren Stephen, Michael,Christina, Oona, Matthew, Cameron, Nicole, Cantrys, Shane and Spencer; and her great-grandchildren Atticus, Breauna, Mikayla, Hailey, Izyk, Jack, Logan and Declan. She will be dearly missed by Frances Campbell, a friend for over seventy years and by her extended family and friends in Canada, England and Ireland.
She was predeceased by Ivor George Cathcart, her loving husband of sixty years, her brother Kevin Halpin, her sister Cathleen Henderson and her grandson Ivor Keenan. Our sincere gratitude to all the management and care staff of Pine House at the Houses of Providence for their loving and compassionate care of our mother and the ongoing care of our beloved sister, Denise.
