She is also survived by her grandchildren Ryan and and Troy and great-grandchildren Ben, Jack, Olivia, and Emma DeWees. She loved, and was loved by all.
She was a long-time member of Warwick Memorial United Methodist Church to which she gave many hours of faithful service as a choir member and Sunday School Superintendent. She also worked at Fort Monroe, Fort Eustis, Warwick High School, and the College of William and Mary.
Catherine is remembered by her children as a loving mother who gave all she could to improve their lives in so many ways. She is loved by them and will be missed! We were blessed!

A Special Person, Lady, Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother; Lord Jesus, please, please take good care of her, Amen.
