I will miss Catherine and have so many fond memories. Her love of Star Trek being one of them.
She baby-sat us one evening when my parents(her Uncle Chuck and Aunt Rose) went out one night for their anniversary. She decided to teach us 4 children a concert, of sorts, that we could perform upon our parents’ return. I was taught (with actions) , standing on a kitchen chair, to sing ‘Catch a Falling Star’
We prepared cheese and crackers and tea for mom and dad for after the performance.
This is to me my dear cousin Catherine ‘s legacy to this world. Kindness and love
She handed me a beautiful note at moms funeral detailing her distinct memories of when dad proposed to mom.
She was a gift to us..,and I will never forget her

I always thought of Catherine as my laurelate cousin who was as articulate as she could write. Sharing a passion of writing between us, I looked forward to my trips home to visit family which included hashing out thoughts and views on what might be a great idea for a book one day - she achieved that goal in writing, and I knew she would. Catherine was so interesting to chat with - her brilliant views on all aspects of people and life were as diverse as the stories she penned. Passionate about her beliefs, yet sensitive to the views of others as she tried to understand and appreciate from where that person had come. I will miss that part of my visits home, but I know in my heart that what Catherine is passing onto our family on the other side of this life, is being welcomed ten fold, and there will be even more stories to be shared - once the rest of us arrive. Love You Catherine, your cousin Barb
