Kath Foley, aged 87 years, died suddenly and peacefully on 17 December, 2017 with her family present.
She was a member of the Union of Catholic Mothers of St Vincent’s Parish, Sheffield for 59 years and had held the office of Foundation Secretary, arranging social outings for the Union of Catholic Mothers members. For several years she worked as assistant secretary at Notre Dame School and also belonged to the ‘Ladies of Charity’ organisation. She did Welfare work, visiting the sick and needy people in their homes and in hospital.
Kath was a stalwart member in the Church of St Vincent encouraging new ladies to the Parish to join the Union of Catholic Mothers.
She instigated the knitting of Easter chicks, bunnies and Christmas stockings, the proceeds going to the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice Fund for which hundreds of pounds were raised.
Kath was loved by all those who knew her and we will miss her greatly, especially those members of the Union of Catholic Mothers at St Vincent, Sheffield.
“Our friend Kath was a true Christian, loving God, loving her neighbour, loving and caring for her family and her friends. She spread love all over the Parish. She was a “People Person” loving, helping and caring for all she knew. We shall all miss her greatly and mourn the loss of our dearest friend. She is now in God’s hands and being loved by him,” writes her good friend Muriel of St Vincent’s Union of Catholic Mothers.
May she rest in peace.
