Memories Timeline


  1. I remember my Great Aunt Cathy with a warm heart and a kind spirit. My love and prayers go out to her family.
    With Love
    Sheila M Gutrich (Kilby Moran family)

  2. Maggie, Kathy, Michael, Therese, all the offspring of Cathy and Harry, Bill and Joanne Moran. Condolences, thoughts and prayers (which may be of dubious value) to all you Morans. They are all gone now (what a legacy, including all of you and your kids) they left. What a wonderful couple Cathy and Harry were. What a great lady Cathy was. Godspeed Cathy, the world is less without you, Godspeed!

    I am so grateful to have had Cathy as my aunt. Our family has fond memories of time spent with Cathy and Harry. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
