Dear family of Mary Catherine, I am a cousin of your dads, so I have know Mary Catherine for a long time. I have lived in Spokane for these past 38 years and before that in CA & TX for seven years, but I visit Monroe County every few years. My son and I attended your mom and dads 50th anniversary party several years ago. Your mom and I were Facebook friends. I am so sorry to hear of her sudden passing. May God comfort you in your sorrow. Lovingly, Sharon (Nottmeier) Arnold
