Catherine Mary (Morgan) Leithwood, was an incredible Daughter, Sister, Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. She gave birth to the 9 of us, and saw us through sicknesses, weddings and everything in between. She was the strongest woman I've ever known. She was the strength and the glue in our family. She lived a totally unselfish life . She was there totally for all of us.
"Mama you left an indelible mark on your family, you will be forever missed" Love you now, Love you always...God Bless and Thanks for being our Mother

Mom, you were the strongest woman I ever knew. You raised us all to be strong & independent & productive members of society. Your faith kept you grounded & focused & made you the woman & mother you were. You taught us to share & give to others , even though we didn’t have much - we had more than others. You taught us how to stretch a dollar. Love & laughter went hand in hand & will help us at this time. You are now at peace! We love you & will miss you!
