Our family is forever grateful for the selfless and quiet manner in which Cathy showed our mother Joan many acts of kindness over the years. Cathy drove mom to church every Sunday that she could, visited with her and remained a steadfast and true friend to her. There is a new angel in Heaven.
My deepest condolences to all of Cathy's loved ones,
Anne Austin
