Cathy truly was a bright light in this world that extended to the lives of others. She will be remembered for her joyful and energetic spirit, selfless manner, and faithfulness to God. She was a proud mother of two sons – who she often referred to as “her boys” and grandmother to triplets with one on the way. She sought every opportunity to place her boys and grandchildren first. Because of her, they will have many memories to cherish. Her boys know she will continue to watch over them from her place in heaven.
