Leigh D.D.S. for the last 15 years.

Cathy radiated genuine inner and outer beauty, and will be remembered for her gorgeous smile, kind heart and her passionate spirit and faith. Her desire to grow and share her love of Jesus allowed her to make profound connections with so many people and created lifelong bonds that transformed friends into family.

Cathy will be forever cherished by her devoted husband and soul mate of 27 years Steve W. Ivey and precious children, C.J. Pickin and Zachery Ivey; sister, Debi Burcham and her husband, Bart; brother, John F. Burns, Jr.; and she will be remembered by her dear nephews, nieces, extended family and friends who were blessed to know her. You have been a devoted wife, mother, sister and friend - we will miss you dearly. You have brought love and grace to your family and friends that will fill our hearts each day we think of you.

Cathy graced our presence for a short time and I will never forget her radiant beauty inside and out. She shared her heart and faith in everything she did. She gave me strength in understanding and compassion following the loss of my husband a few years ago. I am so sorry to hear that her battle was lost. You can carry on her spirit with hope that her love of life has been passed to you in every step you take forward. Life was taken too soon but she really was an Angel during her time with us all. Gods Peace and ❤️ 😇 Lisa

The LORD is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18. Prayers for you Steve and Zach and family. Prayer for Peace, Strength and Comfort. You are truly LOVED.
This is how I will remember how Cathy lived her life: " The best use of life is LOVE. The best expression of LOVE is time. The best time to LOVE is now". She will never be forgotten. Thank you Steve for letting her share a part of her life with me.
