Karen Ann McCutcheon
(nee Chalmers)


It is with profound sadness
that we announce the sudden
passing of Karen McCutcheon
on December 2, 2017.
   A vibrant and vital source of
love for so many, Mom was
predeceased by her
wonderful parents, Gordon
and Elizabeth Chalmers. Karen
will be missed by her closest
friend and sister, Pat Saul
(John); her adored partner,
Norman Hall; and the loves of
her life, her children, Peter
(Patricia), Tim (Lisa), Mike
(Jodi) and Sarah (Sean). The
affection that Nana had for
each one of her grandkids,
and their affection for her, will
forever be remembered.
   The final paragraph of her will
reads, 'to my beloved
grandchildren, Ahren, Jacob,
Hannah, Logan, John, and
Sadie, you have enriched my
life beyond measure. For this,
I want to express my utmost
gratitude. You are the
beneficiaries of my love
forever.'
Karen was many things to
many people. Above all else,
she was a genuine, caring,
selfless person. Whether it
was as a school board
Trustee, teaching English as a
Second Language at several
under-served schools
throughout Toronto, playing
badminton with her group of
close friends or volunteering
with new adult Canadians in
her retirement years, Mom
gave the best of herself at all
times to all people. She loved
reading, gardening, art,
debating politics, gender and
social issues, travelling the
world and having a glass of
red wine, preferably served in
a juice glass or pottery
chalice.
   Please join us in
remembering our beloved
Mom, Nana, sister, partner
and daughter on Friday,
December 15th, from 6 to 10
p.m. at Hart House, Debates
Room, 7 Hart House Circle at
the University of Toronto. A
brief service will be held at
6:30 p.m. followed by a
reception. Please feel free to
join us for any or all of this
celebration of a remarkable
life. In lieu of flowers, please
feel free to give something of
yourself to someone who
needs it.
