Born in Binghamton on November 15, 1938, she was the daughter of William and Rosemary Cleary Bennett. Cathy spent the last 27 years of her over 50 year career as a hair stylist in a labor of love at the Marlene Weber Day Spa in Poughkeepsie.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Anita Svoboda; and her brother, Michael Bennett. She was a parishioner of St. Denis Church in Hopewell Junction.

The family would like to sincerely thank the many caregivers, nurses, and support groups of A&T Healthcare, St. Francis Home Care and Hospice for their wonderful service and care.
