Our thoughts go out to the Grant and Jones families. It is sad to lose Catherine. She meant a lot to many of us. We are thankful we had so much time to spend together over the years. Some favorite times as a child were spending time in Pendleton visiting Cliff and Catherine, them visiting us in Boise, and of course a wonderful Canadian vacation I (Susie) was able to take with Cliff, Catherine and Steve in the trailer as a teenager. She will be greatly missed.

Just found out that Catherine has left us. I'll always remember her friendship and sense of humor; her tremendous energy and positive spirit.

Will always appreciate her support of me through an emotional passage.

Thank you Catherine,
your cousin once removed, Carolyn
