Cathy was born on September 10, 1945 in Albert Lea, Minnesota and is the sixth of eight siblings. She spent her childhood years growing up in Redlands, California and moved to Riverside, California to raise her son (Douglas Dolan) and be close to her sisters, Nora and Darlene.

Diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, she fought the fight like no other champion. During this time Cathy moved to Reno in 2007 to be with her two brothers, son and grandchildren. The last six years she has enjoyed being a grandmother and woman of God.
She leaves behind her son Douglas Dolan, daughter-in-law Shanelle Dolan, grandchildren, Levi Ortega, Hailey Dolan, & Lalaina Dolan, great granddaughter Aleah Ortega. Her sister, Darlene Loomis, brothers, Mgsr. Neal Dolan, Michael Dolan, and Thomas Dolan.
