After a nearly 14 month battle with cancer, Cathy passed away at her home surrounded by loved ones.

Born to the late Harry and Anna (née White) Suit, in Baltimore, MD, Cathy was the youngest of six siblings, having five older brothers. She spent the majority of her working career in various sales positions where she was able to utilize her gift to connect and talk with others. Cathy enjoyed spending time with family, friends, and neighbors, working in the yard, walks with her adored schnoodle, Chester, and living near the water.

She is survived by her beloved daughters Melanie Alt, and her husband John, and Ashley Vogelsang, and her husband, Stephen Tant, and cherished grandchildren, John “Jack” Alt, Mary-Katharine Alt, and Quentin Tant.

Cathy was our friend and neighbor for over 16 years . She loved all the holidays but especially Christmas. She love to decorate her lawn and I would be right out their putting my lights up as well. There were many times we would be out in the back just talking about different things. She always talked highly of her children and her grand kids, as well as Stretch and her dog Chester. What a great women. Will be missed. Rest In Peace Cathy.

Oh my. My dear and sweet friend. I have worked with you for many years. You were a kind and dear friend. We knew at the times we would need a hug. You told me I gave great hugs. So did you my friend.
When you were first was diagnosed with this dreadful diease,you fought it with all you had. You had such a good attitude. You told me you were going to beat it. I believed that you would. This time last year we were getting to meet for lunch. You came on my side of town. We had the best time just talking and sharing memories. Then a couple of weeks later we met again with two more of our co-workers. We had a great time.
We kept in touch alot thru texted. I am so sad that I lost a dear friend.
I asked my hubby to meet you there and guide you thru to your final resting place. I know he did not know you,I told him to look for the pretty lady with a beautiful smile. Rest in peace my dear friend. Love you 💝 Denise.

I am so very sorry for your family's loss. Kathy was such a wonderful person, full of life and love. I have many wonderful memories of working with her. I remember when I was out with a back injury, she kept in touch to check on me and even helped to buy me a special massaging cushion for my work chair. She was so easy and fun to work with. I am so happy we were able to get together for lunch not too long ago. Keeping your family in my heart and prayers.
