Cathy Verhoeven

It is with sadness the family of Catharina “Cathy” Verhoeven announces her passing on August 23rd, 2021 at the age of 82 at Strathmere Lodge. Cathy loved living life on her farm and would bribe her grandchildren with “Oma French Toast” to help her with chores.  She would never pass up a day spent laying in the sun or swimming with her grandchildren.  She loved all animals, especially little dogs, of which she had a few!  She was also known for her “Oma Ice Cream Sundaes” and doing silly things like running outside in her bathing suit in the middle of winter to throw snow balls!  You could always count on every remote, switch, and dial to be painted with nail polish when Cathy was around.


Cathy was the beloved wife of the late Jim Verhoeven (2011). Loving mother of Corey (Cheryl) Verhoeven, Dion Verhoeven (Veronica) and David Verhoeven (Kim). Cherished Oma of Shawn (Kassy), Stacey (Randy), Chelsey (Dustin), Cassandra (Trent), Brandon (Larissa), Joshua, and Nicole. Proud Great-Oma to 12 special greatgrandchildren. Survived by her siblings Teresa, Maria, Jacoba, Joe, and Niv. Predeceased by her siblings John, Tony, Archie, Chris, Adrianne, and Jack. The family wishes to thank the staff at Strathmere Lodge for all of their kindness and care during Cathy’s time there.
