Loss of longtime counselor & advocate to many LGBT2IQ Canadians

Tami Starlight requested that I forward the following, regarding the passing of someone who was very helpful and loved by the trans community in BC.  The Facebook event is for a memorial being held on Wednesday, December 9, 2009:


Catherine White was one of the 6 who perished off Saturna Island 9 days ago.

She was a counselor & advocate to many LGBT2IQ Canadians/Vancouverites over the 15 to 20 years. Unsure of the exact amount of years.

Greatly compassionate and down to earth woman.
Proud to call her a friend and a fellow counselor.
She counseled me when I was beginning my transition and gave 110%.
(this was back in 2001)

Great loss!
Sad indeed.
Also the others we lost on that flight. Quite something.

Namaste/All my relations

Coast Salish Territory/Vancouver, Canada.
