Catherine Mary LaBrecque passed away Sunday, Oct. 11, 2009, in Twin Falls, Idaho. Cathy was born in Keene, N.H., April 23, 1934. She and her husband, Dick LaBrecque, and their children moved to Alamogordo in 1964. They lived in Alamogordo from 1964 until 2006 when they moved to Twin Falls.
Cathy was a loving daughter, wife and mother. She loved to travel and spent most summers camping and fishing with her family. She and Dick lived in Germany from 1984-1988, during which time they traveled extensively throughout Europe and had the time of their lives.
Cathy was an active member of her church, St. Jude Mission, while in Alamogordo and enjoyed singing in the choir and being a member in the Altar Rosary Society. She enjoyed working as a substitute teacher for Alamogordo Public Schools for many years. But her primary job was that of being an outstanding mother and wife.
Cathy is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Dick LaBrecque, of Twin Falls; three sons, Richard LaBrecque, of Bonderant, Wyo., and his wife, Valerie, Douglas LaBrecque, of Sparks, Nev., and his wife, Marge, David LaBrecque, of Noblesville, Ind., and his wife, Jana; two daughters, Sharon Smith, of Jerome, Idaho, and her husband, Randy, and Linda Ross, of Alamogordo; nine grandchildren, Monica, Paul and Bradley Ross, Colin and Corey Smith, Emily and Dan LaBrecque, and Noni and Angel Romero; and her brother Paul Bardwell, of Las Cruces, and his wife, Yolanda.
Cathy was preceded in death by her father, Raymond Bardwell, and her mother, Mary Bardwell.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2009, at 1 p.m. at White Mortuary "Chapel by the Park." A memorial service will also be held at a later date in Alamogordo.
Memorial contributions may be made in Catherine's name to the National Alzhemier's Association.
