Catherine Ann Lovejoy "Kay"
The Guest Book is expired.
Born to C. William and Alice Lovejoy on April 22, 1949. She grew up and attended school in Milford, Michigan. She worked as a Legal Secretary for over 40 years at both Foster, Swift, Collins & Smith, PC and the Michigan Farm Bureau. She received her Professional Legal Secretary certification and was awarded the Michigan Legal Professional of the Year award. Catherine retired on May 31, 2014. She was an exceptional assistant and made lifelong friends. Ten years ago, she met and married her best friend and the love of her life, Randy Piebenga. Together they travelled and enjoyed life. They were members of River Terrace Church and she truly enjoyed watching her loving husband sing choral music. Catherine was a breast cancer survivor and an extraordinarily, classy lady until the very end.
She leaves behind her devoted husband, Randall Piebenga; loving daughter, Jennifer Lovejoy; stepsons, Mark and Scott Piebenga, Mother, Alice Lovejoy; brother and sister-in-law, Dave and Rita Lovejoy; sister and brother-in-law, Anita & Donald Hedeen; brothers and sisters-in-law, Dan and Yvonne Piebenga, Kevin and Tracy Piebenga, and Kathy Ingle; nieces and nephews and numerous loyal friends. She went home to our heavenly father on August 26 where we are confident that she was greeted by her father (Bill) and they will be singing the Victors together at the University of Michigan's opening game with the best view from above.
A celebration of her life will be held at 3:00 P.M. Wednesday, September 3, at River Terrace Church, 1509 River Terrace Dr., East Lansing, MI. In lieu of flowers, for those who wish, donations can be made to the
or Eaton Community Palliative Care in memory of Catherine. Friends may wish to visit the guest book at www.tiffanyfuneralhome.com. Arrangements by Tiffany Funeral Home.
