Catherine was born in Belfast
Lived in Newtownabbey before her death
In her youth, Catherine was a keen table tennis player and won many tournaments and trophies. During the Civil Rights movement in Northern Ireland in the 1960’s, she played an active role in demanding equality for all. Catherine volunteered for many youth groups and always played a role within her local community.
In 1970 she married Gerard Fox in St Kevin’s on the Falls Road. She spent most of her working career working in Prudential Insurance in Belfast as a claims handler helping bereaved families before becoming a staff trainer.
She had three children, Stephen, Sarah and Suzanne to whom she devoted her life, and also to her grandchildren, who were her world.
She was a keen crafter, loved to sew, bake and create things with her grandchildren. She will be remembered as a friendly, loving, caring lady who had time for everyone and always up for a laugh. She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and community. May she rest in peace.
We miss our mummy so much and as a family feel robbed, we lost her too soon and didn’t get to have a funeral or proper goodbye!
Her grandchildren miss their Nanny and Christmas was pretty tough on us all
