Catherine McCallister left this earth Aug. 26, 2010. There was no other person with a brighter smile, a bigger zest for life, and a genuine gratitude for every cherished sunrise and sunset she soaked in. She possessed a childlike innocence, an extremely savvy business and real estate sense, but what she was most proud of was being a great mother and provider for not only her children and immediate family, but for any stray animal that had the good fortune of walking down her pathway. The physical beauty she possessed paled in comparison to the beauty in her heart. A natural beauty in every sense of the word, Catherine lived life to its fullest, a true "cowgirl," who did it HER way... there will never, ever be another one like her.
I love you Mom ... Catherine is survived by her three children, Thyme, Misha and Chase, her parents, Diane and Art, and her sister and brothers, Margie, Johnny and Carl.
