Cathy made a profession of faith in Christ and was attending Cold Creek Cowboy Church.

In her spare time, Cathy spent all the time she could with her kids and grandkids. She loved them so much and would do anything she could to help them. She was a loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, niece, and friend.

Although she has left us far too soon, she is no longer suffering, and we have many special times together that we will always cherish.
