Catherine Bartley

It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of a wonderful
mom, momma and great-grandma. Catherine Mary Bartley (nee McLeod), passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones at the Chapman House Hospice, on Saturday, January 6th, 2018, in her 82nd year. Beloved wife for 62½ years of the late Wilbert “Wibe” Bartley (January 4th, 2017). Very loving mom of Anne Cochrane (Steve), Wanda Doubt (Mike), Cathy Bartley (Kevin), all of Owen Sound and predeceased by her son, Wilbert Jr. (2010). Special mom of Keith Harrington (Lynda), of Paris, Ontario. Amazing momma of Wilbert, Cathy, Lisa, Aaron, Ryan, Crystal, Jesse and great-grandma of Brooke, Presley, Charlee, Luke and Braydon. Sadly missed by her brother, Doug McLeod (Marilyn), of Elliot Lake and Howard McLeod, of Hamilton. Predeceased by her parents, William and Minnie McLeod and 3 siblings. Cathy will also be missed by her many nieces, nephews and her very dear friend, Arlene Sherwood, of Michigan. We would like to thank CCAC and especially, Dr. Megan Griggs and Nurse Glenna for going above and beyond. Special thanks to the Chapman House Hospice for ensuring that mom’s wishes were fulfilled and for being there for our family.

Cremation has already taken place and as per her wishes, there will be no visitation or service. A Graveside Service for Cathy Bartley will be held in the spring at Zion Cemetery, Hepworth.
