Condolence & Memory Journal

I was sorry to belatedly learn of Cathy's passing this week. Her family home and my parent's farm were near each other when we were both attending Thomson elementary school in the 1960's. I have fond memories of the annual picnics her parents would host at their rural home for Clinton Laundry employees and friends. The spring on their property kept the bottles of pop cold on warm summer days. Cathy was very organized and detail-minded even in elementary school, and had a caring and warm personality. I am sure she will be missed by all those who knew her.

I am so sorry to hear of Cathy's death. I worked with her as a realtor at the Isenhart Realty Office in Mount Carroll in the mid 1990's. I was always amazed at her wide range of interests and her attention to detail. Deepest sympathies to Steve and her family.

My heart breaks. Cathy was a good teacher that always tried to help, always encouraged, tried to keep things interesting, and always was there for extra help. So talented. She will be missed by so many people.

To the family of my sweet friend Cathy,

You all have been in my prayers through this journey and will continue to be on this new path. While i only knew Cathy a few short years, it was clear to me she left a lasting impression everywhere she went. She and I had many a giggle and good conversation while she visited the floor with students.

Thank you for sharing her with the world. We are better because of her.
