It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our caring and loving mom and Oma, Cathy Nooyen. Cathy passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of her children on March 26, 2014. Welcoming her with open arms is our dad and Opa, her husband, Peter, who left us in January of 2000. Missing her with heavy hearts are her daughters Ingrid Johnston, Linda (Mark) Phillips, and her sons Robert and David (Tanya) Nooyen. She leaves behind her grandchildren, Amanda and Kaila Johnston, Taylor and Chad Phillips, Kyle, Spencer and Camryn Nooyen – they brought a smile to her face, laughter to her day and spirit to her heart. She gave us strength, taught us patience and showed us courage. Our mom will always walk with us. She will forever be a living presence in all of our lives.
