I knew Catherine from grade school at St. Michael and High School at Ladywood in Livonia. I talked with her at the 25 year reunion. Her classmates at Ladywood are sad that she is gone. Our prayers are with her family.

The Ladywood High School Class of 1965 had its 50th reunion this past weekend of Sept 26 & 27, 2015. Most of us had not seen Cathy in 25 years and she was dearly missed and fondly remembered. My prayers, and I know they are joined with those of other alumnae, are with her and our seven other deceased classmates.

Mikey,JZ and Kate's family. The Morrison family extends our sympathies and love to you and the family. Your Mom (and Father)played a major role in many of our lives throughout their lives; we have lost good friends. We have many remembrances of your Mother and Gary was most happy to have the opportunity to visited with your Mom just a few days before her passing.

God be with you all. She and your Father are missed by our family but blessed to have known them.

Gary, Terry and the kids

Kate was a wonderful woman and she will be greatly missed. I'm sorry I wasn't able to attend in person.

I always loved talking and hanging out with Kate anytime I got to be in her presence through her friends. I always learned something from her. I'll never forget the last conversation we had. She was a joy to know. I loved Kate the great! She was an absolute one of a kind gal! Her family and friends are in my prayers.
