Flynn, Catherine Anne (Nee Culleton)

May 1st, 1934 - April 11th, 2023

Passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her loving family, April 11th, 2023, Catherine Anne Flynn of Freshwater (originally from Bar Haven) in her 88th year.

Predeceased by her husband Philip, sons Martin and Joe, daughter Maureen, son in law Arthur Power. Brothers Johnny, Tom and Mike, sisters Madeline and Mary.

Leaving to mourn her sons; Stan (Trudy), Terry, Peter (Alverna) and Randy. Her daughters Madonna, Monica (John), Linda (Doug) and Tammy. Sister Jenny DeSouza

Catherine is also leaving behind her very special companion, her dog Rodie.

A special thank you to Catherine or "Nan’s" amazing care givers, Dr. Robert Power and Nicole Richardson who helped fulfill her wish to remain in the comfort of her own home.

Catherine has left a legacy of a life that revolved around her family, she spent many hours in the kitchen, cooking, baking, oh how she loved her sweets, and making her delicious homemade bread. She made many quilts and spent hours on her sewing machine. And when she wasn’t busy with all of that, you would find her with a pair of knitting needles and a ball of yarn while watching her soaps or her daily mass. She made the best mittens, socks, and pot cloths.

Resting at Maher’s Funeral Home, Placentia.  Visitation to take place on Friday, April 14 from 2-5PM and 7-9PM. 

Mass of Christian Burial will take place Saturday, April 15th at 10:30 AM at the Holy Rosary Church, Freshwater.  Interment to follow at Dermot McGettigan Memorial Cemetery, Southeast, Placentia.

Flowers gratefully accepted or a donation can be made in her name to the Alzheimer Society.
