It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Catherine Dawn Demkiw following a long and courageous battle with cancer on Thursday. August 1, 2019, at the age of 56 years.

Cathy was predeceased by her parents, Eva and Robert Langdale; mother, Sandra Font and her sister Eve Font. Cathy was born in Edmonton, AB., on July 15, 1963. She grew up a free spirit, kind and generous, living life to its fullest. Cathy met her soul mate Peter and went on to have three children. She worked for many years as a talented graphic arts designer in Edmonton where she excelled showcasing her love of all things art. Cathy had a love for life and a kindness that was palpable. Anyone that met her or had the privilege of becoming her friend, immediately felt accepted with grace and love. She had the ability to bring out the best in everyone. Cathy truly was a beautiful person inside and out and because of this, she impacted so many lives. Cathy will be greatly missed by countless family and friends, too many to count.

    Don't cry for me,
    I'm not gone.

    My soul is at rest,
    my heart lives on.

    Light a candle
    for me to see
    and hold on to
    my memory,

    but save your tears
    for I'm still here,
    by your side
    through the years.

    RIP Cathy xoxo
