Catherine Joan (McLeod) Bosworth
1949 - 2011

Beloved mother, grandmother, sister and daughter, Catherine Joan (McLeod) Bosworth passed away in September of 2011. She was a loving and caring woman and is missed dearly.

Catherine was born on July 31, 1949 in Rivers, Manitoba, Canada. After graduating high school she went on to study Social Work. She married Donald Bosworth on June 5, 1971. As Don was in the Royal Canadian Air Force, the two traveled often finally settling in Lancaster, CA.

Catherine was a healer at heart who enjoyed helping others in need. This led her to get her RN degree shortly after moving to California. She worked as a registered nurse at Antelope Valley Hospital for 17 years in the Intensive Care and Critical Care Units as well as later in the Mental Health Department. She also took classes and seminars in rape crisis counseling in the hopes of opening a rape crisis center in the ER of the AV hospital. Catherine was also a member of CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) ( as a special advocate for children. She excelled at her work with CASA and would often light up talking about it. It was a cause truly dear to heart.

Catherine was preceded in death by her father Kenneth McLeod. She is survived by husband Donald Bosworth, her daughters Christine Watkins and her husband Christopher, Megan Owens and her husband Mark and their two children Michael and Peter, her mother Joan McLeod, and sisters Marilyn, Judy and Susanne.

Catherine loved the beach and especially Carpenteria and Santa Barbara in California. She took many vacations to the area. She asked that upon her death her ashes be scattered in the ocean there. A private family service will be held at sea on May 30th.

We will always carry your memory in our hearts. We love you.
