Judy was an extraordinarily warm and generous person and radiated kindness and love. She was our family’s core and caretaker. Judy was also an amazing cook and baker specializing in comfort food and holiday goodies. She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, reading, spending time with her tiny dogs, walking at Berg Park, and spoiling nieces, nephews, and grandkids.
She is survived by her husband of nearly 50 years, George E. Cathey, and her two sons Greg Cathey and George F. Cathey. Judy leaves behind 5 grandsons, Wacey, Judd, Glenn, Zeke, & Tucker Cathey.
