She devoted her life to community service, serving as med captain for both Lisle Med Team and the Whitney Point Fire Department Med Team. Cathy was always there for the community, taking part in many fundraisers and benefits throughout the years. She strongly believed in community service, and we are blessed that she passed that passion on to us. She fought very bravely with Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis. In the face of such a difficult path, she always had a smile and never gave up. She showed us how to face challenges with grace and dignity and truly was #CathyStrong.
We would like to thank her medical team, Lourdes Hospital, UHS Wilson Hospital, Strong Memorial Hospital (especially the SICU 8-3600 team) as well as all the friends and family who helped her to get to appointments, keep her company during her stays in the hospital, and all of the love and prayers that kept her spirits high.
We will be honoring Cathy on Tuesday, November 30th at 11:30 at the Lisle Fire Company, 9090 Main Street, Lisle, NY 13797. Calling hours from 11:30 to 2:30, with Memorial Service to follow and luncheon at the Fire Hall. The family is also providing a blank picture board for anyone who would wish to bring a photo memory of Cathy to share.
In lieu of flowers it was Mom’s wish to use her last act to once again give to others in the form of donations to either the Lisle Fire Company or St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
