February 19th, 1983 – December 3rd, 2020
It is with great sadness that the family of Catherine Litwin Halonen announces her sudden passing. Cathy passed away on her family farm doing what she loved working with one of the people she loved most in the world. She will be remembered as a loving and devoted mother, wife, daughter and sister. She was a best friend to many and an active participant in the community. Her goal was to live by the wise words of Senneca who said, “Not how long, but how well you lived is the main thing.” She always gave 100% of herself in every endeavour, and often shared wisdoms that were passed down to her from her grandparents. As a mother, she believed that working alongside her children was the best way to model and pass down knowledge and skills. She was a passionate steward of the land, growing organic grain, beef and vegetables. She worked with endless joy towards building a legacy on the land with her husband, children and parents. Leaving a positive imprint in all lives she touched, she held a deep belief that everyone deserved to be loved and should experience love, regardless of the circumstance. Just like Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, she sprinkled that sh*t (love) on everything.
Cathy will be lovingly remembered by her children, Dylan, and Tyson; her husband and highschool sweetheart, Tylor; her parents, Bev and Al Litwin; siblings, Andrew, Phillip (Cory), Amy; Grandmother, Shirley Axani; as well as many other close friends and family.
Cathy was predeceased by her loving grandparents, Joe and Lil Litwin, Metro Axani, and great grandma Lilian Smart.
