Catherine Mary Meyer passed away peacefully at her home with her family in Nanaimo, British Columbia at the age of 71. She is survived by her loving husband, Ronald Edward Meyer, her stepdaughter, Teri Meyer of Terrace, BC and her two brothers, Bruce McCarter of Nanaimo and John (Keren) of Ventura, California.
During her life, she enjoyed her nieces and nephew, Craig, Emily and Heather who grew up in Nanaimo and later, Fiona and Victoria in Ventura, California.
She was close to her cousins Ian (Judy) Coates, Ross (Chris) Coates and Miriam (Reg) Effa all of Victoria, BC and she often referred to her cousin, Miriam as “Sis”.
Cathy welcomed the daily love and companionship of her two cherished dogs, Charley and Moxie.
She was predeceased by her mother and father Pat and Don McCarter of Victoria, BC who instilled in her, a strong sense of dedication and public service. Cathy grew up in Nanaimo in the 1960’s and attended the University of Victoria where she embarked upon a teaching career.
She taught the primary grades at Cilaire, Rock City and Mt. Benson elementary schools in Nanaimo and cultivated many life-long friendships, retiring in 2005 after 34 years of service.
In her youth, she travelled Europe and enjoyed horseback riding, skiing the local mountains, sailing the Salish Sea and summer vacations at her parents’ lakeside cottage. In later years, she accompanied her husband on road trips to many places about beautiful British Columbia. She also enjoyed many good times with her”walkie-talkie”and “tea” friends.
Thank you to all Cathy’s wonderful doctors and caregivers who supported her throughout her life.
According to her wishes, there will be no memorial service or celebration of life.
