Threads of love: A lifetime of commitment and giving
It is widely acknowledged that the people of Saskatchewan are an exceptionally generous lot. In fact, it’s something we pride ourselves on. This generosity often goes further than caring for our families and neighbours; it extends to those beyond our province and even our country.
Catherine Roadhouse embodied this compassionate spirit throughout her lifetime. Born in January 1911, Catherine grew up near Evesham, Saskatchewan. Upon completing Grade 12, she lived at home and helped with housework, learned various types of intricate needlework and cared for her mother, who suffered from poor health. In 1938, she married Carl Roadhouse and they farmed successfully for many years in the Evesham area.
