Catherine grew up living in lots of places, including Texas, Ohio, Oceana, Florida, and West Virginia which she called home. Catherine was a graduate of Oceana High School before moving to Ohio where she connected with missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was baptized. Catherine remained a faithful member of the church throughout her life and loved The Gospel.

Catherine was an avid reader and loved a good mystery. She also loved doing crafts, playing games, and laughing-- with epic pranks and cheesy jokes being her specialties. Catherine loved serving others and she held many callings serving her local church congregations. She was a proud graduate of Davis Technical College's Medical Office Administration program and loved continuing to work for the college after graduation.
