Catherine Mae Bolls North was born on December 9, 1935 and passed away peacefully on October 11, 2020. She had endured a long battle with Alzheimer’s.

Her parents were Florence and Clyde Bolls of Corpus Christi and she had 2 older twin sisters, Dorothy and Ruth, and a little brother, Jimmy. She was married to Douglas Frank North for over 60 years until his passing in 2017.

Cathy played the French horn in high school and loved to sing. So much so, that she voluntarily wrangled up a children’s choir at Faith United Methodist Church. She loved singing hymns, even earlier this year during her Sunday church visits to Christ UMC in Sugar Land with her son David. She also loved painting and sewing.

She belonged to a porcelain arts club, enjoyed traveling to the annual convention, and had her own kiln to fire her work. She was a talented seamstress and worked for many years with a friend in her drapery business. She was an avid gardener and had the prettiest array of amaryllis bulbs and pink roses that would bloom every spring in the yard.

She had 4 children: Doug Jr, Patricia, David, and Stacy, and 4 grandchildren: Sydney, Olivia, Owen, and Audrey. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy! She loved their visits and traveling to visit them on many occasions. She and her husband were residents of Oak Ridge North for over 40 years and had many friends in the neighborhood. She loved people, all people, never met a stranger, and was always willing to lend a hand to someone in need. She was so deeply loved, and we treasured our time with her.

Catherine’s memorial service will be available via Facebook Live on Thursday, October 15 at 3PM.

I have many fond memories of your Mother. She was a very sweet,
loving and kind person. We now live in the Austin area but were
neighbors in the eighties. I have a vanity tray with small pastel colors that is signed by your Mom dated 1983. It is still a piece that
is used and much loved. She was a very talented lady. A couple of other memories are of a neighborhood supper club we were involved in with your parents and the Halloween parties on the Byrds vacant lot. That was such an enjoyable time.
We are so sorry for your loss and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Howard and Janet Widmer

Aunt Catherine was the kindest, sweetest, and the most gentle person I knew. Her and Doug were a true love story. And now they are in each others arms again. In 2007 my wife & I were able to stay with them for a few days and see all their pictures and talk about the memories of when they were young. She loved her sisters (the twins as she would say) and would visit in Corpus when she could. We just enjoyed the time we had with them. We have the Hope of Glory in that we will see them again in Heaven one day. My heart is heavy on this day for all of the family. Thank you Aunt Catherine for all of the good that you brought to this world. Love you always!
