Catherine Gorrie

Catherine Susan Gorrie (Susie), of McLeese Lake, BC, passed away on December 17, 2014, at the age of 53.

She is survived by her loving husband Mike Searls; children Doug Gorrie of Grasmere, BC, Tiffany Weed and Derek Weed of Cranbrook, BC; step-daughters Amanda Searls and Meagan Searls; grandchildren Raylin, Clayton, and Annebelle; sister Angela (Gorrie) Paradis; half-sister Sadie (Phillips) Salloway and half brother Victor Phillips. Predeceased by Douglas Gorrie (father), Mary (Gravelle Phillips) Gorrie, half brother Sonny Phillips and half sisters Gloria (Phillips) Trahan and Sally (Phillips) Enas.

Susie was born July 6, 1961 in Fernie, BC and was raised in Grasmere, BC. After marrying Virgil Weed and having three children, she lived in the same area, then Barriere and Sparwood, making good friends every place she went. After separating she moved to the 108 Mile Ranch in 2002 with husband Mike Searls, then to McLeese Lake in 2012.

Susie loved to laugh and could usually find a way to make other people laugh. She spent lots of time outdoors and loved hunting and fishing, as long as the fish were biting.

A sparkle in her eye and a laugh on her lips.

We miss you Susie.

Susie loved kids – anyone who saw her around them could see that.

If you want to donate, any of the children’s charities would be nice.
