Catherine Nannie Kay Munro Manson

March 16, 1922 - May 10, 2014


It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Catherine Munro Manson, beloved
mother, grandmother and great- grandmother, on May 10, 2014. Catherine, “Nannie Kay”,
was born March 16, 1922 in New Westminster BC.. She is survived by her children Harald (Lyn)
 of Sechelt, Ellie (Leslie) of Nelson, Fraser (Yvonne) of New Westminster, Vic (Kathy) of Nelson,
Peter (Kathy) of Lindsay, Ontario and Georgina of Calgary, Alberta. She was predeceased by her
husband Norman in 2007. Norm and Kay moved to Nelson from the lower Mainland over 45 years ago.
Catherine’s family and her friends were her life, and her greatest passion was her babies, especially the
thirteen grandchildren and the twelve great-grandchildren. All of them have benefited from her love
of handwork and her excellent skills in knitting, crocheting, sewing and quilting. From the cradle, the
Anglican Church played a major role in her life, and over the years she was active with Sunday School,
ACW and Altar Guild.

Catherine’s greatest legacy is the kindness, tolerance, love and forgiveness she offered to all
who entered her life. Her love was abundant; there was always room for more in her heart.

 Catherine’s beloved grandchildren have been sharing their love and admiration:                     

“the most beautiful real life example of love”
“the most amazing mother, grandmother, great-grandmother I have ever known”
“role model for everyone”
“how lucky we all were to have had her in our lives”
“she touched so many lives in such a positive selfless way”
“my Nannie loved me and all she knew unconditionally”
“closest person to sainthood that I’ve even known”
“heart of our family”

We will miss her so much! Thankfully, we all have so many loving memories to cherish!

My sincere condolences to the Manson family during this difficult time. I have fond memories of “Mrs. Manson” while growing up in lower Fairview. She was a very kind and understanding person. May she rest in peace.
