    Cathy made the holidays very special and fun with her many talents but her greatest accomplishment was her 4 kids. She will be missed dearly.

    Out of all of us kids, my sister got the bulk of our mom’s talents. She amazed me with her pumpkin carvings. And she could sew really well. She’s going to be missed and remembered by many, especially her kids. I know she was very proud of them and loved them dearly.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Cathy through her son and daughter-in-law, Danny and Joshalyn. The last encounter with her was at her youngest grandson’s 1st birthday party. She was a pleasant person and was proud of her grandchildren. A life cut way to short.

  4. Jerry & Janie Hensley

    We live on the same block as Cathy and Kenneth but we had only become acquainted with them over the past couple of years. Cathy was a kind hearted, generous woman who loved Kenneth and her household pets. She had many talents and one thing that we will never forget is her smile, her laugh and her ability to make the best of an unpleasant situation. We will miss her dearly.

    Cathy was our neighbor & we loved her. She was a very gracious person. I still remember her saving, it will be my pleasure. I volunteered with homeless children & she helped me- providing used clothing for our back to school give away, baked goods for our parties, and she had planned to make winter caps for our Christmas party for our homeless/needy children. She also made gifts for the homeless ladies when we had our annual Mother’s Day party. I am going to miss her giving spirit, her sweet smile, and her funny laugh.
