Catherine was “Cathy” to hers friends and family. Cathy lived life to its fullest and was happiest when surrounded by family and friends. Cathy was a loving, nurturing and selfless person who dedicated her life to raising her children. She taught us that honesty was the best policy and to treat people the way you wanted to be treated. She loved to laugh and play jokes on others, and loved telling stories about her childhood. She loved to shop, and could always find the perfect gift for her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mom was the proud matriarch of our family and her endless love and spirit will live on throughout her entire family. Mom will be truly missed by her family and friends.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched .... they must be felt with the heart.”
We would like to thank the staff of Innisfree House for their support and loving care of our mother through the last few weeks of her life.
