They are actually already on WikiTree this is Catherine and her father Gillepatrick

However looking at the People of Medieval Scotland website http://www.poms.ac.uk/  I think there has been a mistake with Catherine's parentage.

The original charter calls her daughter of Cospatric and although one of the sources https://www.clangalbraith.org/GalbraithsOfTheLennox/lennox.htm (scroll down to the Cartonvenach section) calls him Colpatrick and implies this is the same as Gillepatrick there seems no reason to believe they are interchangeable as names.  Cospatric is a common name in this time period in Scotland  Gilla Patraic not so common.  A Gilla Patraic, son of Mael Brigte is one of the signatories to the original charter but again there is nothing that states this is her father.  See here http://db.poms.ac.uk/record/person/7250/#
