Cathy was one of the strongest people i ever knew. She fought so hard to get through the tough times to be with her family. She loved everyone and was such a good "young" grandma to McKayla, Cainen and Brewer. She was an excellent stepmother and friend to Dan's two children Erika and Stephanie. We ALL loved her!

Where to begin.? Cathy changed my world in many ways, since meeting her 32 years ago. She cooked many amazing meals, did handy work around my home, would be my ears when I wanted to talk day or night. She without a hesitation, offered to watch both of my children as babies so they wouldn’t have to go to daycare. She was a proud and sometimes private person. She didn’t like a lot of photos taken of her, but always had a camera out during family events. Cathy introduced me to one of my favorite spots-Lake Lotawana. Her family has owned a home there for many, many years, and she would invite my family to come enjoy the lake with her. I have a lot of fond memories of her at the grill, driving the boats, or taking my little kiddos on the jet skis.
Cathy will be dearly missed by everyone. Her smile was beautiful. I have to stop myself at times because I can’t just text her and get advice or words of encouragement. My kids will forever remember Cathy and the bonds they had for each other. Christmas Eve will never be the same without her.
Rest In Peace and be pain free. We Love you so much!

There's so much to say about Cathy. We were instant friends when I met her 40 some years ago, with her childhood friend, Brenda (Wise) Janes. With other close friends, we tried to keep up with Cathy playing softball, but we couldn't come close to her talent. She just wanted us to get out of the way and she would handle it. And she did, and I was fine with it.  We laughed so hard about our dates, our secrets, our adventures, our clothes, Cathy's twin (Brenda), Paula's Nike's and her Gloria V. jeans, Dana's dainty running style and the gigantic cows.
It was always an adventure and I cannot wait for someday to tell Cathy's grand kids stories about some of the fun and adventures we shared to always keep Cathy's memory alive. 
Cathy was never afraid of hard work or helping people. My Dad even wanted her for a daughter, since she could run circles around anyone when it came to building or fixing something or her general knowledge of cars. She was the best friend for listening and always talked about her family and what the kids were up to.
I've missed her and will continue to. Cathy's memory will live on. We'll all make sure of it. She was one of a kind and she made the most of her life, though taken too soon. I would say "rest easy my good friend," but I'm guessing she's in Heaven laughing and help keeping things in order already. I am lucky to have been her friend.

Cathy was like a second mom to me growing up. Both her and Dan gave Drew and I so many awesome experiences growing up..from going to NASCAR races, to the lake, or having a “bake off” for who could make the best dessert between my mom and her. A great story was a day on Lake Lottawana when I was in high school. She wanted to take the jet ski out and take a rip around the lake. She told me to hop on the back and did her best to throw me off. She succeeded by stuffing the jet ski into a big wave which sent all 6 foot and 240 pounds of me over the top of her head and into the lake. She thought that was pretty hilarious haha.

I’m going to miss her dearly, but all of the great times I had with her and the Crockett family will live on in my memory. Sending love to all of you guys.
