Catherine Jane Birtwell (Cat)

Suddenly and unexpectedly at her home on 30th August 2022, Cat aged 35 years of Clayton-le-Moors.  The devoted and loving mummy of Nicholas, Kiara and Jessica, adored daugther of Michelle and Carl, cherished granddaughter of Valerie and Joan, loved sister of Nathan, Natalie and Josh, Catherine also leaves many special relative and good friends.

Cat was the most amazing and doting mum to her three children and she loved nothing more than snuggling up with them on the sofa in her favourite PJ’s and dressing gown. She was a social butterfly who loved to be out and about and was always surrounded by her many friends. She loved a night out and wherever she went, Catherine would be the life and soul of the party and her smile would light up the room, she could chat to anyone about anything. She enjoyed her holidays and had just returned from a break at Southport Pontin’s with her children and mum with many wonderful and happy memories made that will be treasured forever.

Catherine will be sadly missed by all who knew her and her light will forever shine.
