Obituary of Kathleen (Kate) Grant

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our dear sister and aunt, Kathleen (Kate) Grant at Copper Terrace Nursing Home on June 3rd 2022 in her 94th year.  Predeceased by her parents Peter and Alice (Rice), her brother Hugh (Shirley), sisters Sheila Everett, Patricia (Patrick Myers), Joan and Charlie Pray and Betty and Roy Adams. 

Adored and loved by her siblings Brian and Shirley, Michael and Susan and Ann and Michael Murphy.  She will be dearly missed by her many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews who held their aunt in the highest esteem. 

Kate grew up in Chatham attending St. Joseph’s School and Ursuline College the Pines followed by her desire to help others while attending nurses training under the guidance of the Sisters of St. Joseph in London. Following graduation she moved to Michigan and nursed at Mount Carmel Hospital in Detroit. After many years of caring for patients she became the manager of operations on the operating floor prior to her retirement.  She continued to share her love for people and especially family as she became lovingly referred to as the Detroit Tour Guide for her numerous nieces and nephews.  They loved their trips to see Aunt Kate because each visit was full of fun, adventure and shopping. She will be dearly missed.  To our undisputable matriarch “May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.” 

Cremation has taken place.
