ARNOTT, Catherine Anna “Kay” (née BROWN)
Peacefully at Maple View Long-Term Residence in Owen Sound on Thursday February 14, 2008 in her 89th year. “Kay” was born in her mother's home in Owen Sound on December 26, 1919. Beloved wife for sixty-two years of the late Ormond Alfred “Lou” ARNOTT (passed away 2006.) Beloved mother of Bill ARNOTT (Candace BOUCHARD) and Lynda (Don FRITZSCH.) Grandmother of Paul FRITZSCH (Patricia) of Newmarket and Scott FRITZSCH (Robin) of Minneapolis. Great-grandmother of Catherine Emma FRITZSCH. Remembered by sister-in-law Bernice (Harold BROWN,) of Owen Sound. A loved aunt of many nieces and nephews in Ontario and British Columbia. Predeceased by her parents Elizabeth and Tom BROWN and step father Bert FOOTE, her brothers Harold and Lionel BROWN, sisters-in-law Shirley GLADSON (nee ARNOTT) and Evelyn BROWN, brother-in-law Tom ARNOTT and by two nephews Tom BROWN and Wayne PLOMP. Growing up during the depression after losing her father to influenza she learned from her mother how to make meals with limited ingredients and unlimited imagination. She knew how to prepare various dishes from local wildlife when food was scarce. Her baking was done with a “pinch of this, a bit of that” and a “you can tell from the feel when it's ready.&rdquo Her favourite beverage was fresh brewed tea with a “blip of milk”. She would talk about growing up in the area with pleasure and a sparkle in her eye. Backing up the old 10th Street West hill in a Model T Ford, or bundling up and going out to Shallow Lake to visit her uncles in the horse drawn sleigh were some of her stories. Her joy as a child was going to Sauble River and spending time fishing and swimming. After high school she attended the Northern School of Business. She learned important skills of the day which included dictation, typing, filing and accounting. She met and married Lou in early 1944 and traveled with him to Truro, Nova Scotia while he was stationed at Camp Debert and while he was in England. After the war ended and Lou was discharged from the forces they returned to Owen Sound to raise their family. She worked for several downtown businesses setting up bookkeeping and accounting systems. Kay worked for the Owen Sound Parks Board and took the job as office manager when the Owen Sound Health Unit was formed in 1963 and stayed until her retirement in 1984. She was a member of the Roselawn Lawn Bowling Club for many years and enjoyed traveling. She volunteered with Red Cross Blood Donation program for many years and was also a member of the Owen Sound Legion Ladies Auxiliary. Coming from pioneering stock she was a pioneer herself. She kept the family finances in order, worked a full time job and ensured that her kids were taken care of. Friends may call at the Breckenridge-Ashcroft Funeral Home on Sunday February 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. A funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Monday morning at 11 a.m. Doctor Brad CLARK officiating. Interment in Greenwood Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations to the Branch #6 Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre Foundation, or The Legion Poppy Fund would be appreciated by the family.
