Obituary of Catherine Anne Wallace

The family of Cathy Wallace, loving wife of almost 45 years to Paul Wallace, are saddened to announce her passing on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born May 15, 1960, in Saint John, she was a daughter of the late Mary Ella (Yearwood) and Ralph Folkins, and her chosen parents, the late Sadie “Dee” and Elsworth Yearwood.

Cathy had a love for all animals, especially her “baby boy”, her cat, Jake. She enjoyed her weekly drives to White’s Bluff Wharf on the Peninsula in the summer months, where she and Paul would spend time with family. At home, she was often busy watching her soap operas.

Besides her beloved husband, Cathy is survived by her brother, Ralph Folkins; sisters, Marion Chaisson and Barbara Montreuil (William); several nieces and nephews; close friend, Janet MacFadyen; and her close cousin, Terry Yearwood (Cindy), as well as several other cousins.

For those who wish, remembrances to the SPCA would be appreciated by the family.
