Cathy was Christian, having been raised in the Lutheran faith. She was a very talented singer and as a young woman had toured and made two records. For several years she worked at the Kiel Auditorium as a backup singer. In later years, she began her employment with Von Weise Gear Company in St. Clair, MO, retiring after twenty-five years of service to the company. Cathy was a fun loving, kind individual with a keen sense of humor that will be missed by her family and friends. She was always there to support her children, and later her grandchildren, as they participated in sports and school events. She was an avid Cardinals Baseball fan and rarely missed watching their games. Playing bingo and listening to country western music were other favorite pastimes. Each of her children and grandchildren held a special place in her heart, just as she did in their hearts.
A devoted and loving mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great and great-great-aunt, cousin and friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
Private services and committal will take place at a later date. Memorials may be made to the St. Clair Baseball Association. The family entrusted the care of their loved one to Russell Colonial Funeral Home, St. Clair, MO.
