To all of Catherine's family,
I have known Catherine since I was a teenager many years ago. She was one of the sweetest, kindest, soft spoken woman I have ever met.
I regret I was not in Albia to attend her services but please accept my condolences.

I met Catherine when she visited jim at the Oakwood Nursing Home. My dad, Fred Jones, was Jim's roommate. Catherine was a lovely person who was devoted to Jim, her family and her church. She was a delightful lady. My Dad and I enjoyed visiting with her. We were glad that our paths crossed. I know that her family has many precious memories of her and will miss her very much.

Mom; your the best mother a person could ever ask for. So many great memories, maybe I was the most spoiled of our bunch,the youngest is suppose to be.You taught all your kids to be kind,and treat people how you want to be treated.Thats why you kept your family so close.You never had a bad thing to say about anyone thats just who you were. I just thank God I was able to be by your side these last weeks

I sure will miss my lunch hour visits with you! Aging with dignity was so hard for you this last year but you never ever complained! You were one tough cookie! And I think"Sweetness" is your middle name. My tears are happy because you are now at peace in Heaven! This is not the end cuz I know with hope we will see you again!
RIP Mom - Love ya,
