Cathy had an infectious smile and laugh. She was a beautiful soul inside and out, always putting others before herself. I can recall many times she would just drop by my room to see how I was doing. She will be greatly missed at Starke Elementary by everyone! My prayers are with the family during this difficult time. ❤️

Cathy was one of my closest friends at SES. She worked with many of my students last year, and always went above and beyond to give me the support I needed. She was always there to give me love and encouragement during the times when I needed it the most. She helped calm my nerves and was a shoulder to cry on whenever things didn't go right. She texted me every day to check on me during the pandemic and overall, she was like an older sister to me. I will always remember her for her kindness and gentleness.

Cathy Loring was a beautiful women inside and out. She could read my face across the campus, Sometimes we would just laugh and other times she would come come give me one of her hugs that were not just any hug they happen to be the best in the world! Just a few weeks ago Cathy stopped me in the lunch room and asked if I could please sing happy birthday to do Dom during lunch today, so I stayed and waited on Lashonda and 5th grade to not only sing him Happy Birthday but to take a video and pull him up in front and when I left the lunch room I went straight to Cathy's room to show her and she absolutely loved it! Her face glowed with happiness and she just had to put it under the doc cam to share with her class. I could go on and on with all the found memories I have with Cathy, She will be missed..Till we meet again XOXO

Cathy was so kind and thoughtful from the moment I met her. I have a video of her riding on the four-wheeler with my daughter. When this video comes up in my Facebook memories I just giggle a lot. She would come out to visit my daughter from time to time. One night her beautiful family joined us for a movie night underneath the stars. She made me proud for her to trust me holding her babygirl while she slept cozy in a warm blanket as I watched the movie outdoors. We Love Cathy so much and her beautiful family and she will be truly missed by our family.

Cathy was a very sweet and thoughtful person. During the pandemic she checked on me often. She treated my kids like her own every time she saw them. When she found out I was helping out at the Summer Reading Camp she would check in to make sure everything was going okay. The last thing she gave me was some colorful organizers for my classroom because she knew who much I love I bright colors. Her spirit was just as bright and will be dearly missed.❤️

Mrs. Loring was so welcoming when I transitioned back to elementary after being at secondary level for years. She always had a smile on her face. Special Education was her true calling. She put so much thought and effort into her lesson plans and was an absolute Angel at Starke Elementary. Mrs. Loring was so encouraging throughout the whole school closure pandemic time. She was a true team planner and offered to help in any way possible. She even bought me my first Erin Condren planner during this time because she knew how much I loved organization. She will be greatly missed.

Cathy was one of the first people to embrace me at my first teaching job. I wouldn’t have survived that year without her, and the rest of the second grade team. She was the kindest, and most caring person. Somehow she always knew when something was wrong, and I felt safe to confide in her. While she gave a whole new meaning to the term Chatty Cathy, it was exactly what I needed to come out of my shell and gain confidence. Prayers and love to the Loring family, ABC and D. In loving memory.
