Catherine Crout-Habel Day

So, today my Mum, Catherine Crout-Habel would have turned 68. It is almost 5 months since she left us and the void left behind has not begun to shrink. I know she would be proud of us for the way we are continuing to live our lives, but I also know that she would be happy that today is “all about her” as we pause in our busy lives and take time to remember the amazing woman she was, and what she achieved, and how she influenced us to become the successful people we are.

Happy Catherine Crout-Habel/Mamo/Caiteile day everyone. May the sun shine brightly today and may there be more tears of Joy for the fact that she was part of our lives, rather than sadness because she no longer is.

I am in my early 40's with a loving husband and a son. I came in to the blogging world recently when my much loved Mum (Catherine Crout-Habel) passed away. Genealogy and blogging became Mum's life in her later years when her body started failing her. Her blog is her legacy and I couldn't let it die with her.

  1. Happy Catherine Crout-Habel/Mamo/Caiteile Day to you and yours also…thank you to Catherine for our years of friendship and laughter, sleepless nights, some tears.. and for being one of the best stirrers I know. She loved “putting the cat among the pigeons” to see what reaction she got, but most of all I will remember her love of family and friends and her undying loyalty to all the people and causes she cared about.
    Memories with a smile…

  3. thinking of you all today Kirrily on Catherine’s special day. She was such a passionate woman who believed in her family and was committed to her causes. Catherine made us laugh often, cry occasionally and care about her. She was very special and far too young to leave this world. I’m pleased you have happy thoughts among the tears.
