Cathy Sue Steen

August 6, 1958May 30, 2018

Cathy Sue Steen left this world to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

The last year of her life she was tormented with chronic pain syndrome and major depression. Cathy was blessed to have a beautiful life which included much love, joy and suffering. She always had a strong faith and hope in Christ as her Savior!

Cathy was a fine lady who loved her family, friends and piano students. She had the gift of hospitality and was always looking for ways to love and care for others. She will always be loved and greatly missed by her husband of 41 years, Carl David Steen; her children the late David Carl Steen, John Henry Steen (Bonnie), Sarah Jayne Kane (Justin); six grandchildren Mack, Jack, Jane, Eve, Summer and Karly; her parents Hank and Mary Lou Bos; her sisters Barb Havenga, Janet Wood and their families, and many other family members and friends.

May she rest in peace. We love you, Cathy Sue! See you on the other side.

There will be a memorial service at the Faith Reformed Church, 1139 E Front St, Traverse City on Saturday June 2, 2018 at 11 am with visitation one hour prior. A private burial will be held at a later date.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Covell Funeral Home Traverse City.

My heart is broken. The Steen Family is second to my own and Cathy’s faith has been a rock throughout the storms of life. She loved her family fiercely and dearly and I am happy to share the love, trust and faith together in our Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST! See you on the other side, Cathy! You will be severely missed.
