Condolence & Memory Journal

I'm so sorry for the loss of such a great woman. I was in NJ for the funeral of one of my relatives, or I would have been there with mom, Barb Corns. So many fond memories growing up around the corner from one of my dear friends, Patty. She would make pa-sghetti to get me to come over for dinner. Her caramels were so yummy, that I remember her every time I make them. Such a great lady, deepest sympathy to Patty and the family.

One of my favorite people growing up! She always welcomed me into her home like I was one of her own! Slumber parties, long days in the tree house, the attic up the secret stair case was my favorite! Patty, I have my best memories of time spent with you and Sandy. May Cathy rest in peace with all those who preceded her, in the arms of our Lord. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of sorrow. I will be there in spirit!

Growing up across the street from Cathy and Paul, Cathy was like a second Mom to the Steinkamp girls. Always a loving smile and a hug, and she was very special to our Mother, Anita. Now she is with those that went to heaven before her, rejoicing that she is at peace. Our condolences to the family, she was a very special lady. Nancy and Denny Perzo-Bloomington, Il.
