Erin Morgan Catterton, affectionately known as "Pete", 22, beautiful daughter, sister, aunt, granddaughter, cousin and friend passed away July 29, 2015, with her family and friends by her side at the Mandrin Chesapeake Hospice House in Harwood, MD. Erin was a child brain cancer survivor at the age of four and was taken too soon by uterine cancer. Erin's happiest moments were spent every day by her mother and father's sides enjoying anything from small shopping trips to vacations in Nashville and Savannah. She adored quality time with her siblings, her family, her dogs, her friends, and brightened the lives of all who knew her. She loved Hello Kitty, horses, tinkerbell, to wear pink, paint, draw, watch Price is Right & QVC, listen to country music, take her chances on scratch-offs, play bingo for hours, share her amazing giggle with others and walk 3.1 miles annually at the Race for Hope raising funds for Brain Cancer in Washington, D.C. She was a dog walker to Bandit and Rosie who will miss her treats. Erin continues to be a constant inspiration and strong survivor presence to those who have suffered from or supported those with cancer. Erin is preceded in death by grandfather, Bill Catterton "Pop", of Harwood, MD and her faithful dogs Snow White and Lewis. Erin is survived by her parents Scott and Debbie Catterton; her brother Scotty Catterton, Jr.; her sister Elizabeth Gilliam and brother-in-law Michael Giliiam; her grandmothers Betty Catterton and Connie Halkovich; her grandfather Charles Richards; her niece Baileigh Catterton; her nephews Rex Fullerton and Ryan Gilliam and her dog Tinkerbell. A visitation will be held on Sunday from 2-4 & 7-9pm at the Hardesty Funeral Home, P.A., 905 Galesville Rd. in Galesville, MD. A mass will be held on Monday at 11:30am at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church 101 Owensville West River, MD. Interment to follow in the Church Cemetery. Donations may be sent to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-Atlantic in her memory.
