Heather and Christy, Ann, and all the Meadows family,
We have so many wonderful memories of your special Mother and sister. She was a beautiful soul, and we were proud to call her friend. As a teenager, while spending a weekend with my pal Ann, I'll never forget when Cathy walked into her home with George in tow...he had more hair than Ann and me together! Good times. Our deepest sympathy,
Nancy (Matney) and Darrell Johnson

Cathy was the sweetest person, so congenial and likable. I got acquainted with her at our family reunions. I was so shocked to hear of her passing. She will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Lloyd her family.

Cathy was a kind, caring and lovely lady! As her customer at the Tazewell Post Office, I will miss her. She treated everyone the same. Cathy went beyond what was required to help everyone, with a SMILE! She loved to tell me stories about her girls and grandchildren. She was so kind to me when my husband passed away. I will never forget it.

Our Tazewell Main Street will never be the same without her. I will pray for you. How very blessed you were to call her Mother.
