In­go­nish Beach, Nova Sco­tia

It is with the heav­i­est of hearts, that we the fam­ily of Katie, have to share the news of her sud­den pass­ing; along with her mother, Jen­nifer Westhaver, on Oct. 20, 2018. Katie was born to James (Jim) and Jen­nifer (Dono­van) Westhaver of In­go­nish Beach, on Septem­ber 29, 1982. Katie was the youngest of three chil­dren. You would al­ways see Katie with a smile on her face. In schools as a teach­ers’ as­sis­tant, work­ing at the lo­cal Fresh­mart, or this past fish­ing sea­son on the boat with her best friend and part­ner in life, Matthew. Katie was a fighter, a can­cer sur­vivor, liv­ing her best life with heart dis­ease, and al­ways be­lieved in see­ing the pos­i­tive side of things. Her world re­volved around her fam­ily and large cir­cle of friends.

Re­cently, Katie fell in love with get­ting fit; mo­ti­vat­ing her team as a Beach­body coach. She was an avid sports­man, al­ways hik­ing and up for any­thing out­doors. She also loved be­ing on the open roads, en­joy­ing her mo­tor­cy­cle. But Katie's great­est ac­com­plish­ment was be­ing a mom and won­der­ful role model to her beau­ti­ful daugh­ter, Charlee Michelle. Katie is also sur­vived by her high school sweet­heart and part­ner of 21 years, Matthew Smith; brother, Mitchell (Tammy) Westhaver; nephew, Dono­van; niece, Eva; mother-in-law, Joann Smith; brother-in-law, Jamie (Ni­cole) Smith; nephew, Oliver; sis­ter-in-law, Mandy (Chris) Smith; many aunts, un­cles and cousins. Katie was pre­de­ceased by her fa­ther, James (Jim); brother, An­drew; fa­ther-in-law, Char­lie Smith; un­born child; two aunts and an un­cle in in­fancy. She left this world with her lov­ing mother, Jen­nifer by her side. The fu­neral Mass for Katie Westhaver was held Oct. 26, 2018 in St. Peter’s Parish Church in In­go­nish Beach, with Fr. Alphon­sus Iwuji and Fr. Paul Macgillivray of­fi­ci­at­ing. The burial was in the parish ceme­tery. In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions in Katie’s mem­ory may be made to a char­ity of your choice.
