EVERYONE connected with Dumbarton FC is deeply saddened to hear of the tragic death of Dumbarton care worker Catherine Sweeney.
We send our sincerest condolences and warmest wishes to her family and many friends in the community.
Catherine’s family have issued this statement through her trade union, the GMB: “We want to pay tribute to our wonderful mother, sister, and beloved aunty, Catherine Sweeney, who passed away from coronavirus while being cared for by the medical staff at the RAH Paisley, on the night of April 4.
“We want to thank the doctors and nurses who heroically looked after her in her final days.
“Catherine was well known, and well respected within the community of Dumbarton, where she was born and raised.
“She was a caring and generous person, especially when it came to her time, having dedicated over 20 years of her life as a home carer to unfailingly serving the needs of the most vulnerable in society.
“After a lifetime of service to the community, we know she will be sorely missed, not just by her loving family, but by many others for her incredible warmth, care, and dedication.
“A whole community shares in our grief.”
