Obituary for Katherine Finucane
A Tribute to an Unforgettable Woman
We bid farewell to the kindest soul, Katherine Elizabeth Finucane, (née Votour), who passed away peacefully in her home on Sunday, July 16, 2017 surrounded by her loved ones. She is survived by her loving husband, Bernard Finucane and her three children, Shannon (Louise) and their kids, Gavin, Leah, Jayden, and Conner, Sean (Tiffany) and their kids, Keara and Riven and Shelley Struginski (Dave). Kathy is also survived by her mother, Eva (Gordon Williams), her sister, Charlotte (Donny Farrell), Bernie’s father, Morgan Finucane, and her bother Vince Votour (Linda). Gone before her, her father, Vincent Votour, mother-in-law, Christine Finucane (O’Reilly) and her son, Shane Finucane.
Family and friends always knew Kathy as the kindest soul, an angel of a woman here on earth. She led a life of compassion, heart and soul. She made the largest impact on everyone she met, whether it was for a minute or a lifetime. Her journey was never easy, but she made the darkest days bright and the brightest days even brighter.
Kathy will always be remembered by her radiant love for her family, those in need or who were sick. She dedicated her life to helping those less fortunate and all while being there night and day for her loving husband, children and grandkids. Kathy had a true gift from God, one that was so much more exceptional than the average person. God brought people into Kathy’s life that needed her. The 58 years Kathy had on this earth may have been cut far too short, but she had accomplished so much more than most would accomplish in 100 years.
Kathy has taught her grandchildren well by exemplifying kindness and respect. Kathy’s abilities to nurture her children and grandchildren were done without expensive things. She did everything with pure love, kind words and leading by example. Kathy made the best fun with the simplest of things. She sang the best songs and she made the most creative things out of nothing. Kathy was and will always be the most symbolic and iconic person in her family’s lives forever. Her grandchildren will speak of her with grace and passion forever and always like she was with us yesterday.
Kathy will forever be missed, her memories cherished in our hearts forever.
