He treasures her memory and mourns her death, together with their sons, Edward, Douglas and Peter; their spouses, Eve, Germaine and Betty; her grandchildren, Caroline Roberts, Catherine Roberts, Clair Roberts, Katharine Roberts, Alison Webb and Jessica Webb; her sister-in-law, Alice Roberts of Victoria, B.C. and her sister and brother-in-law, George and Marie Giannou of St. John`s. She was born in Truro, Nova Scotia, on 4 June 1912, the only child of Edward G. and Charlotte (Hanson) Moxon. After graduation from Dalhousie University, she taught for two years at Hatfield College for Girls, in Cobourg, Ontario, before her marriage on 21 June 1938. Katharine Roberts believed that each of us owes an obligation to do what one can to help others, and she lived by that principle. She devoted time and effort to volunteer work, including the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, the Imperial Order of Daughters of the Empire (which honoured her by making her a National Life Member), and Frontier College (of which she was a governor for many years). She and her husband together made a significant contribution to their community and their country, and she was instrumental in helping him to achieve his manifold accomplishments. Her life was a living embodiment of the values and standards she had been taught to cherish. Plain-spoken and refreshingly candid, she could not abide cant or pomposity. But she cherished her friendships, and was a tried and trusted friend through good times and bad. Her husband, her children and her grandchildren are left with many and happy memories of a full, rewarding and long life. They give thanks for that. Katharine`s sons and her daughters-in-law acknowledge the devotion and care of Eileen Moyles, Pam Pike, Eileen Ryan and Judy Squires, and the friends, nurses and doctors who did so much to make the closing portion of their mother`s life happy and comfortable. They helped her to live as she always had, in control of her own destiny. The family are deeply grateful to them for their affectionate and constant care. It will come as no surprise to anybody who knew Katharine Roberts that she gave explicit and clear-cut directions for her funeral arrangements. She has been cremated and her ashes will be disposed of by her family at a later time. There will be no visitation, but her friends are invited to gather with her sons and their families for a service to celebrate and commemorate her life, at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Friday, 7 May at 2:30 p.m. The family will receive friends after the service, at a reception at the Cathedral Parish Hall.
