John, Vicki, Wendy -- My sincere condolences for the loss of Cathy. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Cathy was always very kind when she called into the office when I worked with John and I always appreciated it. She also very graciously opened her home to my daughter when she buddied up with Wendy during her Padua years. I am praying for your family.

We, in the Elk River Yacht Club, will deeply miss our good friend Cathy, on our weekly Friday Night Raft Outs, on the Bohemia River. Cathy was a good friend, a wonderful person to talk with, and had a wonderful family. We shared many common experiences and we will miss her and think of her often this summer.

So sad to hear about Cathy's passing. She was very close to my sisters during their years at Eddystone High School, and I remember her as a friendly, outgoing and happy person. Here is her obit and some photos from her junior year, scanned from the 1964 yearbook. I am posting this on my FB page and the Eddystone High page.
