GREEN, Catharine (nee Kinsman) Peacefully on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 with family by her side. She was 86. A gifted musician from an early age and a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, she had a long career as an accompanist. Our house was always filled with musicians and for a time not one piano but two. She was well known in the Ottawa music community for decades. At the piano, her calmness and perfect pitch allowed both experienced singers and young musicians to give their best performances. She cherished friendships, travelled, skied, played tennis and was, quite possibly, Roger Federer's biggest fan. Loving mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, she will be missed by her family Barb (Chris), Karen (John), Doug (Chantal), Susan (Tom), Nancy (Brian), Joanne (Scott), Andrea; grandchildren Kate (Josh), Paul (Sharena), Carly, Peter, Amy, Christopher, Phillip, Isabella, Daryl (Christina), Deanna, Elise (Rick), James, Liam, Cameron; great- grandchildren Henry and Charlie; and Marg (Terry). Our thanks to Oakpark Retirement Community for their dedicated and compassionate care. Donations in Cathy's memory may be made to further dementia and Alzheimer's research, or to any of Ottawa's music festivals and youth music programs. Family and friends are invited to visit at Beechwood, Funeral, Cemetery and Cremation Services, 280 Beechwood Avenue (East of Vanier Parkway) on Friday, June 22, 2018 for a gathering from 12:30 p.m., and the Celebration of Life at 2:00 p.m. in the Sacred Space.
