Aunt Catherine was special to each of her siblings, nieces and nephews as well as all of their families. Christ received a special angel when Aunt Catherine arrived. She enjoyed attending all of our events when possible as well as planning numerous family holiday get-togethers. Catherine has joined Uncle Earl and other family members in heaven who preceded her in death and is watching over all of us still on earth until the day we rejoin her in heaven. She will be greatly missed by all. We love you and will greatly miss you! Glenda and Terry Austin

Aunt Catherine was always the first to support everyone in the family and participate in any activities with her nieces, nephews, and their families. She was always ready for a road trip or a game of cards or dominoes. Catherine will be greatly missed by all of us.

Aunt Catherine loved all of her nieces and nephews as though they were her own children. I am blessed to have felt that. She was kind and loving and I will miss her. I know she is rejoicing in being back with Uncle Earl and other loved ones in Heaven.

My list of memories of Aunt Catherine is long! She was a rock for the family! She is safe now in the arms of Jesus and many, many loved ones who have gone ahead. And I'll bet Toy is right there also! Love you and will miss you so much, Aunt Catherine.
