Catherine Logan-Carrillo



Catherine Logan-Carrillo, age 72, an unparalleled leader who advocated for all human kind, making the world a better place, impacting all she came in contact with, died Monday, February 19, 2018. The world is emptier without her. Anywhere she saw injustice, she sought to right it. When she saw someone in need, she was there for them. In 1964 Catherine worked in the Civil Rights Movement where she put the freedom of others above her own personal freedom. After graduating from the University of Illinois she joined the Peace Corps. Catherine was a founder of Living Though Cancer (LTC), which took on a national presence and was featured in chapters of several books. She wrote and edited the "Living Through Cancer Journal." Catherine's passions as a cellist and gardener were featured in "US News and World Report". She owned and edited the "Horseman's Voice" and was instrumental in starting "Cancer Support Now." She is missed by her sister, Janice Matsuo; brother, Tom Logan; brother, John Logan; sister, Yoshiko Azuma; brother, Eladio Quinones; aunt, Lynn Purdue; Gene Matsuo; Jocelyn Logan; nieces, Julia Schroeder and Jocelyn Marie Logan; nephews, Chris Matsuo, Emil Azuma and Stewart Azuma. She is missed by many. Catherine was preceded in death by her husband, Tino Carrillo, the love of her life.
