Our beloved friend and colleague, Cathy Gaffney, passed away on Saturday, June 13, 2020 with her daughter Meghan and husband Gerry by her side after a courageous struggle with her longtime foe, cancer.

Cathy was a month shy of marking her 30th anniversary as a Carleton employee and was extraordinarily dedicated to her role as our Financial and Administrative Officer in ODFASS since 2006. Carleton University and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences are stronger as a consequence of her guidance and financial stewardship.

We will remember Cathy as a friendly, fun-loving, and generous person who always went out of her way to help others and faced every challenge with strength and determination. Please use this space to share your recollections of Cathy. We will forward the messages of condolences to her family as a way to mark this difficult moment and convey our sympathy.

Dean, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
