Cathy married the love of her life, John Conklin, on December 24, 1959. Cathy loved to open her family to others in times of need. There were always extra chairs around the table at the holidays to share with those that didn’t have a place to spend the holidays. In their earlier years, Cathy and John would host children from the Defiance Children’s Home for the summer. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and especially the grandchildren.
