Cathy loved growing up in Cedar City. She enjoyed adventures with many friends and family members, often fishing, camping, and hunting for arrowheads in the surrounding countryside. Cathy was very social. She quickly made friends wherever she went, and she was always known for her love of animals. In her early career she loved being a waitress, where she had the opportunity to lift her guests’ spirits with her playful personality. Cathy had a giving nature, and those around her were constantly receiving gifts from her—particularly the crocheted items that she loved to make.
Thanksgiving Day in heaven must have been a celebration full of warm embraces as Cathy joined those who preceded her in death: her father, brothers Alfred and Robert, her close sister Karen, nephews Scott and Kelly, and many other loved ones. She is survived by her mother, sister Dorothy, daughter Krisdee (Derek), son Justin, grandchildren Hayden, Braxton, Karlee, and Mariah, and many other family members and friends. She will also be missed by her two dogs, Bubba and Pugsy
Cathy’s family would like to express gratitude to Dr. Nupur Aggarwal, Valley View Medical Center, IHC Hospice, Kolob Regional Care Center, and all those who kindly cared for Cathy during the time of her physical challenges.
Funeral services will be held Tuesday, December 3, at 11:00 in the Rock Church at 79 East Center Street in Cedar City. Friends and family may call Monday, December 2, from 6:00 to 7:30, and again one hour prior to services on Tuesday. Interment will follow in the Cedar City Cemetery.
