I’m saddened by the passing of Ms McCartney
I had the pleasure of having her as my medical terminology class instructor at Henry Ford Community College
I respected her and looked up to her
She made the class fun
I invited her to my graduation party from nursing school
I graduated from HFCC nursing in 1992 and she attended.
My deepest sympathy to her family

It is with a saddened heart that the members of the Providence Hospital School of Nursing graduates of the Class of 1959 extend our sympathy to Cathy's relatives and friends. She received her RN degree with our class by completing the three year diploma nursing program at the Providence Hospital on West Grand Boulevard in Detroit and then passed the State of Michigan Board of Nursing exams. Cathy was a valued member of our class who exhibited a great love of nursing during our times as students.

Rest in peace, Cathy. You will be missed by all of us.
