Backyard neighbors with the Kittermans for 12 years. She and I had many chats at the fence while she would give our dogs treats. My condolences to the family.

Cathy is a beloved sister-in-law who made me feel so welcome as a newcomer to the family. It seems like she brought a sense of well-being to gatherings and when you were around her it felt like nothing more important than enjoying the time spent together. I’m grateful for her laughter and fun personality. I didn’t get to see her in action as a grandmother very often but the way she spoke of her grandkids and her girls I know the were really loved. J

Cathy was a fun sister-in-law who always knew how to keep things friendly and interesting. I always remember how she would encourage those who had not won at family games by telling the group that this person or that was the "second winner" or "third winner." She enlarged her skills in making Afghans for all ;her children and grandchildren. Ceramics and painting were other artistic abilities she developed.
She was interested in others and we will miss her greatly. Cathy is now in a better place with family reunions on the other side.
