Catherine Bacon, 53, most recently of Philadelphia, PA, peacefully passed away surrounded by her loving family on Monday, October 9, 2017.

Cathy was a graduate of Corpus Christi Grade School, St. Mark’s High School, and the University of Delaware, where she earned Bachelor’s Degrees in both Biology and Psychology.  She was employed as a data entry supervisor with Iron Mountain, Inc. from 1996 to 2009.

While living in the state of Oregon, Cathy became a dedicated member of Battle Ground Community Baptist Church (Battle Ground, WA), headed up prayer teams and was active in many church sponsored community outreach programs.  She enjoyed bible study, Christian music and worshiping with her church family.  Cathy also enjoyed gardening and was known to indulge in her fair share of chocolate. 

In 2009, Cathy ‘s life was forever changed after suffering two strokes.  Since that time, she experienced many health issues requiring multiple surgeries, hospital stays and complications along the way. Throughout these struggles, Cathy never lost her joy for living.  She was an inspiration to many with her contagious smile and spirit of positivity and strength.
