She then joined the Catholic Children's Aid Society of Hamilton, where she worked as legal counsel for over 25 years. She was well respected in the Hamilton legal community, forming many friendships and ultimately being awarded the Patricia Wallace Community Service Award, which recognizes lawyers who practice family law in Hamilton and whose community service and professional conduct best exemplify the qualities of Justice Wallace. Catherine also volunteered with L'Arche Hamilton, acting on their Board of Directors for many years.

Jim and Catherine travelled in their younger years, before eventually deciding to build a cottage in Catherine's hometown of Tweed so that they could spend more time there enjoying family. Catherine was an active member of St. Ann's Catholic Church in Ancaster. Her faith was an important part of her life.

Catherine has been cremated and a burial service will be held at St. Edmund's Catholic Church in Stoco, near Tweed, in the spring. Arrangements entrusted to the Cassidy Funeral Home, Tweed. When conditions allow, a memorial service in Hamilton will take place in the spring or summer.
