Cathy had a strong faith in the Trinity, and it showed in her words and actions. Always quick with a smile and an encouraging word, Cathy never missed an opportunity to lift up others and point out the positive. She was very kind-hearted and had a gentle spirit. She was a prolific card sender, sending the right card for every occasion. In her spare time she loved to travel, stay at her beach house, go camping, and support all of her family’s numerous activities.
Survivors include sister, Kiki Gregos of Portland; children, Jon (Debbie), Mike (Stacey), Todd (Monica) and Cathie; grandchildren: Natalie, Olivia, Zach, Sophie, Jacob, Jesse, Josh, Luke, Rachael and Django.
