Cathy was a very kind, loving and caring person.  Family was her number one priority. Whether it was friends or family, Cathy was always willing to help people. She had a passion for working with people with disabilities and assisting others as a Public Guardian Representative.  She loved all animals, but had a particular soft spot for her dogs. Cathy was also fun loving, with a great sense of humor and very much enjoyed live music.

Cathy will be lovingly remembered by her husband Brant, children George, Ronald and Jayden; brothers Brian, David, Gord [Leanne], as well as sisters Barb [Don], Brenda and Janice, along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.  She will be deeply missed by her many friends in Grande Prairie.  Cathy was predeceased by her parents, Evangeline and George Sereda, as well as her sister Debbie Sereda.  She was also predeceased by her beloved mother-in-law, Georgina Maine.
