RIDER-MOYER, Catherine Doris (nee Seifried)


Lifetime member of the CWL, St. Boniface Church, Maryhill 

Our beautiful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away suddenly, on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, in her 84th year. She was a loving, honest and hard-working lady whose sincerity touched everyone. Catherine is survived by her children Dan (Cindy), Dave (Lynda), Frank (Sue), Connie and Keith McTaggart and by daughter-in-law, Patti. She will be remembered by grandchildren Dan (Catharine), Nikki (Randy), Marie (Calvin), Elizabeth (Darren), Philip, Corina, Benjamin, Frankie, Kyle (Sarah), Eric, Joel, Matt, Connor and Kayla and by her 12 great-grandchildren. She was “Aunt Cat” to Bill (Laura) and Doug Zinger and to her nieces and nephews of the Siefried and Prokator families. Also, she is survived by sister-in-law, Jean Seifried and by her many cousins, with whom she loved and remained close to all her life. 

Catherine was one of six children of the late John and Ada (nee Reinhardt) Seifried. She was also predeceased by our dad and her first husband Frank Rider (1980), by her second husband Edwin Moyer (1985), by her son Tom Rider (2005) and by daughters-in-law Sharron (2008) and Wilhelmina (2012), by grandson Michael Joseph Charles McTaggart (1986) and by siblings Stanley and Irene Siefried, Helen and Frank Prokator, Margaret and Harvey Dennie, Vincent Seifried, Wilfred Seifried, and by sister-in-law, Marie Zinger.
