Fairfield Count Bar Foundation hosted an amazingly successful Golf & Lunch Fundraiser to benefit Women’s Mentoring Network at Sterling Farms Golf Club on June 27, 2019. Great weather, great food, a silent auction and raffle made the day perfect.
IN MEMORY OF CATHERINE MCLEAN KIRKWOOD
Women’s Mentoring Network is proud to honor the late Catherine McLean Kirkwood. Catherine was an inspiration to her family, and she paved the way for other women to seek out their paths of success.
Catherine was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She left this world at age 96. Born in Scotland, Catherine lost her mother at age 18, at which time she stepped in to help raise her two younger sisters. Married in her early 20’s, Catherine and her husband made the decision to leave Scotland and settle down in the United States, seeking a better life and to raise their family.
Working in the male-dominated insurance industry, Catherine worked her way up through Liberty Mutual Insurance and ultimately became supervisor of three offices in New York.
Catherine was known to share her delicious homemade Scottish shortbread with friends and family. Catherine is survived by her two children, three grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
