Cathy was known to all as “the rock” of her family. She was the glue and the strength that held everyone together. Cathy was known for her loving advise, nurturing heart, and kindness; never turning anyone away who needed help or just an ear to listen. She especially enjoyed spending time with her husband, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and a slew of nieces and nephews Cathy was a lover of the outdoors, when not loving on her family you could find her outside enjoying her flowers and the birds. Her love extended beyond her own children. In the summers, her nieces and nephews were welcomed to her home for weeks during the summers where she treated them to their favorite dishes such as her homemade lasagna, chicken spaghetti, and chocolate cake. Cathy was always surrounded by friends or family, which is what she loved most.
