Mike, Joanne and family, we will dearly miss our sister in-law. Cathy was one of the strongest souls I have ever met. Her fight and determination to battle any health obstacle that got in her way was second to none. Our deepest condolences to you during these difficult times. It’s especially hard right now when we want to be together to console each other and remember the joyful times we spent with Cathy, but can’t due to the current situation. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers and our memories of Cathy will never die.

Mike, Joanne and family: Our deepest condolences to you all during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Cathy was a gentle and kind person and certainly one of the most courageous we have ever met. Throughout her life, she had many struggles but this did not stop her from being optimistic and loving life one day at a time. Every telephone conversation we had, she would tell us “not to worry about her and each time she would be most happy to receive family updates.

We believe that Cathy was blessed to have Mike by her side each and every day. His true love and dedication for her is what we believe enabled her to have such a great outlook on life.

Cathy is resting in peace now with all her loving, departed family. We love you Cathy and you will forever be in our hearts❤️

Cousin John and Joyce Delost and families 🙏🏻

Our deepest sympathy to you Joanne, Mike and your family in the loss of Cathy. I loved and admired her dearly. Few people could have been as positive as she was throughout her life despite her health issues. Her vibrant personality, optimistic outlook and beautiful smile are memories we will have of her always. We will cherish our wonderful visits and family memories made together. She was an inspiration to all of us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
With love, from your cousin, Gloria and Jack and family.

Dear Mike, Joanne, and family,
I am deeply saddened by Cathy's passing. Cathy was very special to me, a hero in many ways. She taught us by example how to face health issues with dignity and courage. Even during her most difficult times, she was friendly, thoughtful and caring of others, always asking how other family members are doing. Memories of visits, times together, and most recently telephone calls will forever be cherished. My prayers are with Cathy and her beloved family. Stay strong.
Love and sympathy to all.
Cousins Shirley and Ralph Deleurant and family
