CATHRYN CAROL (EIX) BASORE
On Monday, January 6, 2014, after a very long struggle with cancer, our beloved mother, daughter and sister succumbed peacefully at home. Cathy was born July 23, 1956 in Covina, CA and passed away at the age of 57 at home in Upland, CA. She was the daughter of Osmer W. Eix (deceased) and Nancy Reitzler. Upland was her home for most of her life.
Cathy graduated from Upland High School, Chaffey College and attended Cal State San Bernardino. She was employed, for many years, by Hart Brothers Electric, Chino, CA in the capacity of Controller. Cathy loved traveling, camping, her pets, spinning, weaving, felting and machine embroidery among many other crafts.
She is survived by her son, Alan Basore of Upland; mother, Nancy Reitzler (Maynard) of Yucaipa; sisters Cynthia White (Robert) of Windsor, Colorado; and Sherry Wootton (Malcolm) of Ashburton, New Zealand; nieces Kristen and Jennifer White; nephews Matthew and Roby White all of Colorado; nieces Katherine, Sarah and Alexandra Wootton of New Zealand; stepsister, Judy Reitzler of Texas; stepbrothers, Larry Reitzler (Diane) of Texas; Michael Reitzler (Pamela) of Mission Viejo; step nieces and nephews in Texas, California and Louisiana and many relatives, friends and neighbors.
