I am sorry to hear of Cathy's passing. My heartfelt condolences to you, John, and your family. I can still remember very well the shivaree that was held by some of your neighbors (including myself) shortly after you two were married. What a ruckus we all made!

I have many good memories helping John and Cathy chop silage. Cathy helped feed us WELL. She was always friendly and such a hard worker. Warren Angus

CandleCathy was my aunt and will be missed immensely. One of my fondest memories is of de-tasseling corn in the hot July sun, but laughing the whole time at all the jokes she made to keep our spirits high. God bless.

One of the greatest people i have ever had the pleasure of knowing. My thoughts are with the family.

CandleOh, the memories I have of working with you at Braddyville and the card parties when we had so much fun. Girls, I so enjoyed having both of you in my classes. You are special in my thoughts. My prayers are with you. The holidays are tough with the loss of a loved one. Peace be with you and may the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand. Sue Henn Schaub
