I’ll always remember how congenial and welcoming Cathy was when we first met. As I was new to KC, she would regularly ask me about new places I’ve been and would share the places she loved. It was a pleasure to work with her and she will be greatly missed.

It is with unimaginable sadness that a final farewell must be offered for Cathy. Cathy was a very special person who was passionate about everything she undertook. She was devoted to her work and equally as devoted to her friends and co-workers. She was a wealth of knowledge – in so many areas – and always willing to share with others. Cathy was bold and fearless; she pushed herself to become a better person and enjoy life to its fullest, setting an example for the rest of us. I loved witnessing her excitement as she prepared for and then reported back on her two performances at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall. These were adventures which might have been daunting to some, especially traveling solo, but she embraced them. During one trip, she worked in a visit to one of Bobby Flay’s New York restaurants (she was also a “foodie”); unaffected by his stardom, Cathy asked to meet and have her photo taken with him. Cathy was as devoted to local productions as she was to her loftier performance opportunities, for example serving as Concertmistress in a Blue Springs City Theater production of Hello Dolly – where, as expected, she and the rest of the orchestra were outstanding. Cathy loved her music! She also loved her family – including her pets, her friends, the Royals (and the Chiefs), her photography, her customers, and her work. While I try to find comfort in knowing that she has rejoined her husband and her mother in Heaven, she will be greatly missed by so many here. Rest in Peace, Cathy!

Condolences to all who knew and loved Cathy,

I am fortunate to have known and worked with Cathy. I will always be inspired by her relentless desire to put others first. Camaraderie among her teammates was her hallmark. I will miss her infectious smile and her genuine sense of caring... and her beautiful violin.

Rest in Paradise Cathy. You are sorely missed.

I'll always remember how welcoming Cathy was to me when I joined the Bank. It was nice to see her passion when she spoke about her music and the trips to play at different locations around the country.

She will be missed!

Sincerely,

I loved working with Cathy. When I was new to the bank, she would often stop by my desk at the end of the day to see how I was doing. She was so friendly! Once, I had to tell her I needed to get going as I was meeting some folks at a Japanese Steak House for dinner. She said, "I love Japanese food!" So, I said, "Wanna come with?" She did wanna come with! Had so much fun so randomly! I only got to see her one time during the pandemic when we went out for a driveway visit, but she was full of life and so excited about her new house. I'll miss her very much.

I worked with Cathy for the past couple of years. I always enjoyed our conversations about her pets, life in general, and of course, the Royals—boy was she a fan! I was also amazed with her musical talent and her accomplishments. Rest In Peace Cathy!

Many fond memories of playing with Cathy in the Nashville Praise Orchestra and at Judson Baptist. God blessed her with an amazing gift of music and a wonderful heart to share with so many people.

She will be missed by so many.

I worked pretty closely and got to know Cathy the past few years. She always had the best of intentions and cared so much. There were a few of us that started a mini coffee club at work. You know Cathy, always trying to get the good stuff and really got our club started with an awesome coffee maker. We were always excited for the next batch of coffee beans that we hadn't tried before. I will dearly miss those times with you!

Boy she had a talent too. I remember one day being at work and hearing this beautiful string music being played. I went around searching and as I found where it was coming from, Cathy was in the corner playing her heart away with a room full of people. Everyone in that room and within an earshot was mesmerized and in awe. She also turned me onto Lauren Daigle whom she had played with on stage. What a proud moment.

God must have needed a violinist for his string section as he called upon you. Rest well Cathy, you are missed!

I am so sorry for the loss of Cathy. We worked together many years ago. I still have Christmas stockings her mom knitted for my whole family. I remember her love of music and her rosy cheeks.
Sincerely
