Halifax, NS (July 5, 2007) – It is with extreme regret that we announce the passing of Cathy Ledwidge. She died early this morning, after a short battle with cancer.
Cathy was involved in the Maritime racing scene for over thirty years and built many friendships during her racing tenure. She always had a smile on her face and a cheerful greeting for those she met.
“I know Cathy from our days with Aliant. She was extremely competent and a subject matter expert, whose opinion was sought when contemplating changes to business practices,” said Ken Cunning, General Manager. “I’d see her at the tracks in the Maritimes, especially at Scotia Speedworld. After becoming involved with Scotia Speedworld and the Maritime Pro Stock Tour, I realize that she brought the same qualities to these organizations that she displayed at Aliant. Cathy was a tireless worker, who truly was interested in what was best for the sport. We were all better off for knowing and working with Cathy.”
The owners and staff of Scotia Speedworld and the Maritime Pro Stock Tour, would like to offer our condolences to Cathy’s family, especially Ernie and Mike, who are our colleagues.
The racing community is a small one in our part of the world and many of you have acknowledged Cathy’s illness in your own way. The family often commented on how grateful they were for the support and touched by your actions.
We will all miss Cathy.
