A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at the Parkview Baptist Church with Pastor Paul Thomas, officiating.

There will be no visitation, as the family is honoring Cathy's wish for cremation. Burial will be at Fort McPherson National Cemetery at a later date.

Cathy was born May 29, 1948 at Kearney, Nebraska, to William and Jane (Neal) Poyner. She grew up in Odessa and received her education from Elm Creek Public Schools and graduated from Elm Creek High School with the class of 1966.

On August 26, 1967, she was united in marriage to James "Jim" Stone in Kearney, Nebraska. Three daughters were blessed to this union, Lori, Penny, and Stacey. The family made their home in Lexington, where she devoted her time caring for her family and homemaking. Once her girls were out of school, Cathy and Jim purchased the site and built Stoney's Gas Station. Cathy managed the store until they sold the gas station in 1997.

In 2010, Cathy and Jim purchased a cabin on the Calamus Reservoir. They enjoyed spending the summer at the lake with family and friends. Holidays were also very important to Cathy, she looked forward to decorating for each holiday, making her famous chocolate chip cookies and spending time with her family. Cathy loved to travel with Jim throughout the United States and traveling with her daughters to the casinos and playing the slot machines. In her younger years, she bowled with her friends in a league, which became lifelong friends that turned into a card group that met every week for years. These girls would take a trip every year and dress up with a different theme. Cathy loved these trips and they were some of her fondest memories.

Cathy attended Parkview Baptist Church in Lexington.

Jim and family, we are so sorry to hear of Cathy’s passing. We have such fond memories of our time when Steve’s TV was across the street from J&S Oil and our bowling teams competed in the ladies league. We knew it would be a fun morning when we were on the lanes together. We send our heartfelt sympathies. Steve and Jan Johnson

So so many wonderful memories of Cathy and I raising our kids together. When Caleb was little and I couldn’t find him all I had to do was call Cathy and she would say he was napping on her sofa. Muffin (our dog) would even hand out for the day with Cathy and expect to be fed. The many many 4th of July gatherings on Grafton drive. The family trip we took to Chadron and the laughs we had about “Kresha the experienced horseman”. The time I was trying to buy a Barbie house in Gr. Island for one of your girls and I got so excited I left all of my packages under the phone booth. Remember taking the girls to that old cemetery, you and Jim hiding so we could scare the girls and a sheriff stopped us and ruined the whole plan but we still had some great laughs. I could go on and on. You and your family meant the world to me and mine. The memories we shared are priceless and will never be forgotten. PS I still can’t make sugar cookies as good as yours!!! Love you Cathy!
