Cathy had a joyous spirit and an infectious smile. All who came into her presence experienced her gentle kindness and laughter.
Cathy enjoyed a loving marriage of more than 26 years with her husband, William Arthur “Bill” Stevens, whom she married on Oct. 25, 1996. She enjoyed caring for their little piece of heaven here on earth. Cathy and Bill loved to travel to places like the Caribbean and Maine. They also enjoyed kayaking and fishing on the South Fork of the
Shenandoah River that flows across the back of their property. She loved seafood, especially lobster.
