Cathy was a resident of Springfield since 1987 and was a homemaker for her family. She then worked at Regency Care and Oak Terrace as their Social Service Activity Director. For the past 15 years, Cathy worked for Villa Health Care West as their Activity Director.

Cathy was of the Christian faith and was proud of that. Her family was most important to her and spent as much time with them as she could. She never left the house without looking her best and she always had a smile on her face. She loved to play BINGO and POGO at any time of the day, besides when at work of course.
