Catherine W. Richardson Obituary
Catherine W. Richardson

Newark - Catherine W. Richardson, age 69, of Newark, DE, stepped into the presence of her heavenly Father on Wednesday, September 5, 2018, after a valiant battle with lung disease. Cathy traveled the world with her husband, Dick, but her greatest joy was simply spending time with her family. She was a supportive sister, devoted wife, loving mother, and generous grandmother. Cathy put others' needs ahead of her own and always sought to find the best in people. She was kind and generous with everyone she met and was known for her hospitality, subtle wit, and feisty sense of humor which she exhibited right to the end of her life. Cathy's generosity and good nature was inspired by her faith in Jesus Christ. In addition to her servant's heart, she loved taking pictures of and showing off her family, joining family and friends over food and fellowship, and spending time in her garden. Besides her battle with lung disease, she proved her strength through raising three difficult boys, praying her husband into heaven, and fighting by his side during his own battle with illness. They dance together again in the glorious presence of their Lord and Savior.

Cathy is survived by her three sons: Paul (Jen), Peter (Anna), and Tom (Cecilia); brothers, Charles (Mary), and Jim (Peg); sister, Karen (Lee); her wonderful grandchildren: Gabe, Zed, Abby, Simon, Alex, Isabella, River, and Harbour; and a host of nieces, nephews, and special friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Dick; and her parents, William and Harriet Walz. They will always remain in our hearts.

A visitation will be held Wednesday, September 19, 2018, from 6-6:45 PM at Life Community Church, 750 Otts Chapel Rd., Newark, DE 19713, followed by a service in celebration of Cathy's life at 6:45 PM. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Life Community Church or New Life Alliance Church, 653 E. Chestnut Hill Road, Newark, DE 19713.
