Howe, Catherine Ann



The Lord received into His glory one of his most precious daughters when Catherine Ann Howe, (Cathy) passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 surrounded by her loved ones. She was born August 24, 1951 in Alb, NM.

She is survived by her two loving sons, Brian and Jeff Howe, a special daughter-in-law, Robyn Howe, and the two brightest lights of her life, her grandchildren, Malia and Aidan Howe, and a bonus grandchild, Joseph Pearce. She is also survived by her youngest brother, Jimmy Apodaca, many sisters and brothers-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews, dearest friend, Trish Hadden, who was like a sister to her, and numerous friends who all loved her dearly.

She is preceded in death by her husband Gary, who was the love of her life, her parents Tony and Adelia Apodaca, and brothers Bob and Tommy Apodaca.

Cathy was raised in Albuquerque, graduated from Highland High School and worked at State Farm Insurance for Bob Edwards until her retirement. She volunteered for numerous agencies, including the Barrett House, The Assistance League, and had plans to be a cuddler at Lovelace Hospital. She loved more than anything attending her grandchildren's sporting events and spending time with her family. Cathy was a superb cook who had a passion for hosting and entertaining which many of us were blessed to be a part of. She loved attending the Barn Again Lutheran Church in Cedar Crest, NM, many plays, antiquing, going to craft shows, the ocean, traveling, and playing Bunco with her friends. Cathy truly lived and enjoyed life until the very end and we will all miss her dearly.

A service of Life and Celebration will be held on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at Grace Lutheran Church, 7550 Eubank Blvd. NE Albuquerque, NM 87122 at 1pm. Private burial will follow.
