Catherine, affectionately known as “Lucy” to her beloved husband and “Cathy” to her friends, was born on August 3, 1959 to Theodore and Rita Henry. She grew up in the Kansas City area where she attended Grandview High School. Soon after graduation, she began her long career as an account manager at Jerry’s Sport Shop until she retired after 38 years.
Cathy enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandkids. She loved traveling with her husband; a favorite trip was to the New England area. She also loved dogs, cooking, sewing, and was an avid supporter of the Fraternal Order of Police. Cathy and Terry spent many years at the lake; she loved the water, whether it was boating, fishing, skiing, or teaching her kids how to swim.
Cathy will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by her husband of 38 years, Terry; parents, Ted and Rita Henry; her children and their spouses: Leslie Breer (Toby), Monica Sweat (Randy), and Chris Barnes (Christian); grandchildren: Harper, Brady, Madison, Layla, Matthew, Jacob, and Charlotte; and her siblings: Kevin Henry, Sandy Gowen, and Mike Henry and their families.
