Cathy was a neighbor and Classmate of mine from Elementary to High School graduation. She was always a steadfast and genuine person. Moreover. Cathy demonstrated high scholastic aptitude (throughout the school years), along with great leadership ability, as she was instrumental in organizing a Cultural Committee for us as minority students at Northern High School. Cathy was a wonderful Classmate whose memory I'll always treasure.

Even though I only knew Ms. Cathy a very short period of time, it touched my heart dearly when she passed. She always greeted me with a smile. She will be missed by the staff and residents of Carver Living Center where she worked for many years. Condolences to the family.
