CROUCH, Kathleen “Kathy” Willard Crouch - “One day she wished upon a star, that she would wake up with the clouds far behind her…”
On Sunday February 11, 2018, Kathy passed away peacefully at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville with her family by her side.
Kathy was born on July 23, 1934 in Halifax, Nova Scotia and spent her childhood in Agincourt, Ontario.
She was the middle daughter between sisters Barbara (Ed Rutherford) and Margot. She was predeceased by her husband Ed in 2009, her parents Burton and Kathleen Beamer, and brother in law David Edge.
Kathy is survived by her five children: Ted (Karin) of Salmon Arm, BC; Mara Lynne of Peterborough; Bucky (Martha) of Brooklin; Kim (Louise) of Whitby and James (Will) of Midland. She is also survived by her five grandchildren: Michael (Kim), Bryan (Michelle), Kyle (Angie), Dillon and Cam; and nine great grandchildren Ryan, Owen, Claire, Grace, Clayton, Lia, Phallen, Knox, Lilah and nephews, nieces and cousins from the Beamer and Crouch families.
Kathy was an avid baseball fan, loved her Blue Jays, and really enjoyed the trips to Florida for Spring training camp games. Mom’s hobby was her knitting and many of her family and friends have hand-made items ~ made with Love by “Kaysie”.
A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Tomsa, Dr. Masri, the CCU staff at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville, and to her family and friends whose care and friendship meant so much to Mom.
A gathering of family and friends will be held in the Spring for a celebration of Kathy’s life.
Arrangements entrusted to NORTHCUTT ELLIOTT FUNERAL HOME, 53 Division Street North Bowmanville.
