Cathy was very creative, known in her family as a crafter who could create something beautiful from ordinary objects. As an adult, she worked many years in graphic arts at a printing company.
She was a passionate and skilled cook who enjoyed hosting many memorable family events where no one went away hungry. When the season allowed, she ventured from her kitchen into her garden. Flowers were her primary focus but she expanded her repertoire to include vegetables that found their way onto their dinner plates.
She took great pride in her son’s athletic pursuits.
