I Love my sister very much. She always made a point to come and visit with my children. Burger King was a must for all of us when she would visit. I know this meant a lot to them and to me. Later on we would go bargain hunting for cloths at my favorite used clothing store and she would find what she always wanted. She called me her good luck charm. I will miss her very much. I'm glad you are now with our parents. Please pray for us and thank you for all that you have done.

Dear Family of Cathy, I worked for all those years with Cathy at AMSU. I have always been impressed by her deep faith and the reassuring peace she brought to many situations. At Andrus, when we met, she was always aware of those around her and, again, share a positive remark or comment meant to help them know that she was attentive to them. I am grateful for her friendship. Sr. Alice Marie Giordano

Cathy and I met at Mercy and got to know each other probably because we sat alphabetically! She was a Math Major and did a fine job (I however dropped out!) When Cathy visit us in So Cal we went to all the attractions. At one Cathy bought a print of The Road to Emmaus. I always think of her when we hear that Gospel. Cathy always remember our five birthdays with a card or a call. She introduced me to everyone (residents and staff) at Andrus, because she knew everyone there. I enjoyed her company when I brought her a (real) piece of pizza and I will miss our visits. Rest in Peace, Cathy!
