Passed away Sunday morning, February 7, 2016 at the age of eighty two. Predeceased by her husband Peter and her brother Bill MacKay, she was survived by her sons William Munroe (Laura), Terry Munroe, Kelly Munroe, daughter Jill Davies, sister Gwen McDonald (Alan), brother Donald MacKay, step-children, nieces, nephews, grand-children and great grandchildren. Cathie grew up in Northern Ontario, joined the air force and so began her love of flying and travel. She raised her children in Alberta, Manitoba, B.C., and finally the Northwest Territories, where she went on to manage the circuit court for the Supreme Court of the Northwest Territories. After 11 years in the North, Cathie moved to B.C. and married Judge Frank Smith. They lived together happily on Pender Island until Frank passed away. Years later, Cathie met Peter Kroeger in Italy. They married and lived together happily for twenty years in Penticton. After Peter passed away, Cathie lived with her family in Qualicum Beach. Cathie will be remembered for her love of life; her gregarious nature; witty humour; canoe trips with her children; her stories about places and people around the world; sharing her artistic gift; her lovely paintings; her hand-written letters; and enjoyment of gardening and nature. She will be deeply missed but fondly remembered.
