WINCHESTER — Catherine C. (Langmuir) “Kitty” Drummond, 90, a resident of Winchester and formerly of Wellesley, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, April 12.
Catherine was born in Glasgow, Scotland and was one of five children born to Christina Galloway and Andrew Langmuir. She was raised and educated in the Drumoyne Square section of Glasgow. At the age of 27, she took a leap of faith and followed her soon to be husband, James Drummond, to the United States. They immigrated to Detroit where they were married and lived for several years. James was employed as a mechanical engineer and his work brought them to Detroit, Philadelphia and finally to the Boston area, where they settled in Wellesley in the late 1960’s.
In her free time, Kitty stayed active with her church, with her family and had several lifelong passions. She had an appreciation for nature, flowers and in particular, a love for birds. She was a prolific knitter, loved cooking, and enjoyed numerous arts and crafts. Kitty loved spending time with her family in Rockport, Massachusetts and Mt. Desert Island in Maine. She enjoyed traveling with her husband, James, to Europe and the Caribbean. Kitty had an irrepressible zest for life; she was always ready for a song and loved to dance.
Kitty was committed to her church, Christ Church in Wellesley. Through her active participation, she contributed to many events and fundraisers. She made many friends and kept those relationships close to her heart. After moving to The Gables in Winchester, her dedication to her faith continued at Crawford Memorial Methodist Church.
Kitty was a fun loving, enthusiastic and warm person who was full of life. She cherished her time with her family and will be fondly remembered by those who knew her.
Kitty was the beloved wife of the late James M. Drummond, with whom she shared many years of marriage. She was the devoted mother of Katherine A. Lew and her husband Russell of Long Beach, California; Iain A. Drummond and his wife Robin Snyder-Drummond of Melrose; and Alastair J. Drummond of Melrose. She was the dear sister of Christine MacKay of Milngavie, Scotland; and the late Margaret Mowat, James Langmuir, and Thomas Langmuir. She is also survived by four cherished grandchildren, and extended family in Scotland.
Relatives and friends will gather in honor and remembrance of Kitty’s life for her Memorial Service at the Crawford Memorial United Methodist Church, 34 Dix St., Winchester celebrated at a date and time to be announced. In lieu of flowers, gifts in memory of Kitty may be made to the Mass Audubon, Development Office, 208 South Great Rd., Lincoln, MA 01773.
