1915 - 2012 Obituary Condolences

Catherine passed away on May 9, 2012, in Paradise, CA. Catherine Ellen Bryson was born on Nov. 28, 1915 in Comanche, Texas, the daughter of Samuel P. McCrary and Alice (Rogers) McCrary.

On October 1, 1934, Catherine married Hix Bryson and they settled in Comanche, Texas. She was a devoted homemaker for 73 years.

Catherine was a member of the Butte County Cowbelles and received the Butte County Cowbelle of the Year award in 1979. She was also a member of the Wyandotte Community Club for many years.

Catherine took an active role in the ranch activities with Hix and their children. She maintained a home at both of their ranches in Quincy and Oroville. She could always be counted on to provide a great home cooked meal for the cattle hands and therefore was affectionately nicknamed, "Chuck Wagon".

Catherine is survived by her four children, Gerald (Marti) Bryson of Oroville, Linda Mason of Oroville, Betty Deakins of Lincoln, and Bob (Kim) Bryson of Oroville; nine grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Hix Bryson; grandson, Jeremy Bryson; and great-grandson, Ryan Georgis.

Services will be held at Foothill Church of Christ, 2295 Foothill Blvd. in Oroville, at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, May 18, 2012. Burial will be at Wyandotte Cemetery and a reception will follow at Wyandotte Grange, 4910 Foothill Blvd. in Oroville.
