Our condolences to Gerry, Meghan, Duncan and Joey and the rest of the Coughlin family. Cathy, you were a true true friend for 40+ years and I will greatly miss our get togethers, conversations and laughs. You’ve left a big hole my friend but God has welcomed an angel.

Cathy was never far from my mind. She was one of the nicest people I have ever known and we constantly joked about stupid TV sitcoms.
She could laugh and did so very often. I missed not seeing her at Carleton in the last months and now I will miss her forever. Rest in Peace Ms. Gaffney.

Dear Gerry & Megan. I am so sorry for your loss. Cathy was a warm, caring, kind hearted person. She had a wonderful sense of humour and we shared many laughs talking about old tv shows and classic movies. I am broken hearted about her passing and not being able to visit during this pandemic. She will not be forgotten. May she rest in peace.
