Catherine’s husband, Charles, was a musician and was in a band for many years. Their active social life involved many nights of dancing, playing music and simply enjoying being together.

They spent countless summers on the Lake of the Ozarks, where Catherine was most likely enjoying a bourbon or a margarita!
