Catharine Leona Joy Minter Parks was born in Chatham Ontario to a Canadian mother and an American father. Her early childhood was spent in the church growing up under a strict upbringing but at an early age started to desire more. With an adventuresome spirit she would join her brother in escaping the house after bedtime and going downtown with him to dances, plays, and the movies, to enjoy all the things that her religious parents denied her.
Catharine developed a life-time interest in weight loss techniques because of her struggles with weight loss.
