Catherine L. Mingus
It is with great sadness that
the family of Catherine Lee (Thorpe) Mingus announces her passing on Monday,
October 29, 2018, at the age of 73 years.
Catherine will be lovingly
remembered by her husband of 53 years, Stanley and her children: Lisa (Mike)
Schreiber, Susan (Tom) Parr, and Michael (Teresa); and by her eight
grandchildren, the loves of her life – Jacob, Benjamin, Samuel, Caden, Gavin,
Sebastian, Garrett and Abby and four great-grandchildren, Carsten, Miles,
Charlotte and Clayton. She will also be
fondly remembered by her sisters: Nancy (Hiram) Bond, Debra (Ted) Schmidt,
Penny (Bryan) Jorgenson, Carol Thorpe, and brothers, Steven Thorpe, and Kenneth
(Tammy) Thorpe, along with numerous cherished nieces and nephews. Catherine was predeceased by her parents
Kenneth and Joyce (Schwartz) Thorpe, sister and brother-in-law, Vicki and Ken
Sprotte, and granddaughter Emma Mingus.
Catherine spent her life
caring for the elderly working first as a CNA and then as LPN at various health
care facilities in the area. Helping
people out came natural to Catherine. It
was her reason for existing. Near the
end of her healthcare career she was the Administrator at Liberty House
Assisted Living Facility.
As per her wishes, there will
be no formal funeral. Instead, a family
gathering to remember and celebrate her life will be held at Catherine’s home
on November 11, 2018 at noon.
In lieu of flowers, donations
may be made to Hospice in her memory.
