My sincere sympathy goes out to Charles and the Quinton and Pope families as they deal with their loss and grief. May the Lord lift them up and hold them close. I will remember Cathy as a fun-loving and smiling neighbor and friend from Mile Hill in years past when we were both growing up.

Cathy was a "silent servant" at St. Peter's. Always working in the background doing ministry and acts of service, never seeking recognition...her desire was always to glorify God. She will be missed by many. My husband, Jeff, and I enjoyed knowing Cathy over the years we attended St. Peter's, and now as I have returned to work at St. Peter's. May God provide comfort and healing to your family as only He can.
