Mary Catherine was my classmate at Texas High. Among other classes, we had journalism together. I remember her quiet humor, her kindness, and her intelligence. I’m so sorry for the family’s loss.

I am missing my friend of many years. Such an extremely intelligent, talented, and funny person. I am so glad that we had the opportunity to work closely together for many years. The world is now a less-gifted place. Joyce Rutter
