As a dear friend to her granddaughter, Karen Bingham, I know she was a Light in this world. Her countless contributions to the Church and children, in addition to her family, are far reaching. I know she loved her husband, and was a shining example to many. I know this by the fruits of her life, as told to me by Karen, and she is dearly missed. Thomas, Chloe and Emma now have a new angel to help guide them!

I met your mother many times at the lodge in Mt Forest. She and my mother Myrtle Irvin spent many happy times going for walks and also just sitting chatting with one another so my mom was very sorry to hear of the sudden loss of her dear friend. My memory of your Mom was that she was always smiling. Marg Stortz

My memories of Catherine and Ken MacKinnon go 'way back to their home in Woodbridge when the whole family so graciously listened to Mary-Jean and myself during our painful "mastering the accordion" days! As I remember, we both "sang along, too" ... even more painful! In spite of that, it seems we all grew up happy and healthy under the watchfulness of those very caring parents. Our sincere thoughts are with you all. Pauline and Ted Philp
