She was born on April 12, 1956 in Pontiac, Michigan, and received a B.S. in Microbiology from the University of Michigan.

Her students will remember her storytelling, quick laugh, and fun projects.
Never one to sit still, Cathy loved to travel, cheer on the Sharks, take art and cooking classes, and spend time with friends and family. She was a rule breaker, always with a twinkle in her eyes, and was quick to offer advice.
