Cathy was such a special person. I loved listening to the stories she used to tell me about all her shenanigans. While we sat out in the yard having a beer. The times she would go on adventures with my grandson. Then there was the time we had to drive to the other side of town so she could see the sidewalks. She loved her family and talked and bragged on them often. She was a great friend who would do anything for someone she called her friend. I love and miss you Cathy Allen. Hope God knows how lucky he is!

My condolences to the family on the passing of Cathy♥.
To me Cathy was such a special lady. When I lived in Ceres I'd run in to her from time to time, and even though it was years since I'd been around the family she always greeted me with a long hug and such warmth. Kindness and love just emanated from her. I will always appreciate and never forget the open door that Cathy and Dan provided me to their home when I was younger. Much love, Rachel.
