McLAUGHLIN, Kathleen Agnes Mudge "Kay"
Died February 24, 2008. She was 92. After a long life, well-lived, our Mother was and always will be loved for her joy, her inspiration, her faith, her relentless optimism and her unconditional love. Her darling Maurice, our Father, died in 1985. Since that time, she depended on and cherished her five daughters, one son and their families: Anne Kathleen McLAUGHLIN (GSIC,) Mary McLAUGHLIN, Margaret McLAUGHLIN, Patricia McLAUGHLIN and her children Matthew and Kate VAUTHIER, Kathy FRAUMENI and her husband John and their children, Colleen and her husband Karl, Mary Kate, Christopher and John Paul, and Ted McLAUGHLIN and his wife Wendy and their children, Tara, Jim and Sean. She will be loved and missed by her New Brunswick family including her brother Vincent and her sister Madelon. Our Aunt Helen BROWN, Mom's dearest eldest sister died in 2004. Their children and grandchildren will miss and mourn their Aunt Kay. Mom attended Normal School in New Brunswick. Soon after, she married Maurice, in 1940. His work took him from New Brunswick to several cities in Ontario, finally to London in 1967 where Mom returned to teaching, having raised her six children. Mom taught in a number of elementary Catholic schools in London. She treasured her students, many of whom continued to visit her after she retired. Her love of children and their education led her to become a Trustee of the London Catholic School Board where she served three terms. Throughout her life she demonstrated leadership whenever and wherever she became involved. At various times and places she served as President of the Catholic Women's League, the Rotary Anns and the Parent-Teacher Association. In her latter years she was the Southwestern Ontario scribe for the International Harvester Retirees Newsletter, a labour of love she continued until age 90. She will be remembered by her Friends as a woman full of laughter who was unstoppable at a Bridge game, never without an opinion, always armed with a good story, and famous for her hats. Friends will be welcomed by the family at Donohue Funeral Home, 362 Waterloo Street, at King Street, London, on Tuesday February 26 from 2-4 and 7-9. Father Michael BECHARD will celebrate a funeral Mass of thanksgiving for our Mother's life at The Chapel, Windermere on the Mount, Richmond Street North at Windermere, on Wednesday, February 27, at 1pm., followed by interment at Saint Peter's Cemetery. Donations to the St. Vincent de Paul Society where our father volunteered for many years, would be appreciated.
