    Dear family and friends of Cathy, I just learned of Cathy's passing and wish I would have had the chance to pay my respects in person! Cathy was my volunteer aid at Wesley School for several years and visited me when I moved into the Steeple Chase Community. She was such a great help to me at the school and she quickly became a cherished friend! I always admired her for her kindness, dedication and ability to accomplish so many tasks with efficiency! I regret that I did not see her in the past few years when I was busy taking care of my parents. I will always remember Cathy as an amazing woman and a dear friend! My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to all who loved her! Donna Devlin Barnett

    Cathy worked with our travel agency when we first signed on with the TWA/Worldspan system. She was such a sweet, kind and caring person. We always and looked forward to and enjoyed her visits for update training. Condolences to her family.
