She was a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and served as the bereavement counselor for Kindred Hospice. Cathy was a gifted, wise counselor who helped many people over years of service to this community.

Cathy’s faith in God gave her strength throughout her life but especially in her last year. Her sense of humor was a gift that brought a smile to many.
