Catherine Stephens, May 11, 1951, to September 4, 2021, of Ellabell, Georgia. Born in Memphis, Tennessee, raised in Winfield, Missouri.
When Cathy walked into the room you knew she was there. She was funny, sometimes sassy, but always full of love. She was an amazing wife, mother and grandmother. She cherished every moment spent with her family. She worked at Fort Howard for over 12 years. She enjoyed camping, gardening, food preservation, she loved having craft night with the girls. She started a school page in her hometown to reconnect with her classmates and old friends. She will be missed by so many.
She has been married to Joseph “Danny” Stephens for 25 years.
