ROBERTSON (Fraserburgh/Dyce) Catherine Stewart died on April 9, 2021, with her daughter, Catrina, and son-in-law Scott, by her side. Loving Mum, Sister, Cousin and Friend. Talented and intuitive teacher. Private cremation. The back of the winter is broken, And light lingers long by the door, The seeds of the summer have spoken, In gowans that bloom on the shore. In darkness we cradled our sorrow, And stoked all our fires with fear, These bones that lie empty and hollow, Are ready for gladness to cheer. Long may you sing of the salmon, And the snow-scented sound of your home, While the north wind delivers its sermon, Of ice and salt water and stone. By night and day we'll sport and we'll play, And delight as the dawn dances over the bay, Sleep blows the breath of the morning away, And we follow the heron home.

Always Admired


17 April 2021
From our very first meeting I found Catherine an impressive lady. Quietly determined, independent, and adventurous. Always interested in life, history and the arts - and with an ability to encourage that interest in those around her. Good company, witty, and so energetic she was hard to keep up with. An honour to have known you Catherine - you have passed on the best of you to Catrina who will miss you so much. Ann x
