There will be no Memorial Service per Cathy's wishes.
Cathy made a positive impact on all she met whether two or four legged. She was a loving daughter, the best big sister, loyal friend and animal lover. Cathy was also an avid sports enthusiast, possessing a life long love of Wisconsin Badger athletics and attending many Badger games with her dad. Each new sports season will bring a void for those family and friends who shared Cathy's passion for Badger sports.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Wisconsin Athletics c/o The University Foundation, 1848 University Ave., Madison, WI 53726, or an animal rescue of your choice.
