Obituary For Catherine Jean Lawson

Catherine Jean Lawson (Cathy) passed away at the age of 62, unexpectedly, after a long battle with severe mental illness. She struggled most of her adult life living in various institutions. She was loved by her family who remember her as a child and young adult before the illness took the woman we know and love away from us. She is survived by her father James Lawson (Jim) and her brothers Robert (Andrea) and Ian (Maurie-Lynn) Lawson. She was predeceased by her mother Shannon.

Cathy grew up in Coquitlam B.C. and had many close friends. After graduation, she became a legal assistant and traveled to Europe. She greatly enjoyed swimming and spending time with her nieces and nephews. She played clarinet in the school band.

In lieu of flowers please consider donations to the Schizophrenia Society of Canada (SSC)

    I often thought of Cathy as we were such good friends. I lost contact with her several years ago. We lived together and had so many laughs and good times together in our late teens and early twenties. She is forever in my heart Love you Cathy. Rest in peace my friend 💗
