Cathy had a strong love for music, dancing and having a good time with family and friends. She was a favorite aunt and a fun, loving and protective sister. She had a natural talent for hair braiding and put smiles on all the faces her hands were blessed to touch. For many of the family, their first babysitter and trusted shoulder to lean on. Cathy was a loner because she was a deep thinker & dreamer but could also be the Life of The Party. Plain & simply put Cathy was a lover of people but the Loves of Her Life, hands down, were her two sons who she was fiercely protective of and gave everything she had to give.
She was a member of Refuge Tabernacle Church of God in Christ in Syracuse, NY.
