On Tuesday, April 13th 2021, Catherine Kate Cunningham, loving mother of five passed away at age 59.
Catherine was on born on August 31st, 1961 in Cleveland, Ohio to Carl Woodson Jr. and Maggie Conner. She attended Collinwood High School and started her family at a tender age of 15. After high school she became a dental assistant and worked in that industry for many years. In the 1990’s, she took a different career path and began work in manufacturing. After 16 years, she retired from Metal Seal Precision as an operator.
Catherine loved and known to her family as “Peanut” was tiny but mighty. She never minced her words and had a special way of letting you know exactly what was on her mind. Cathy was always “ready” and on her game. She deeply loved and fought hard for family and friends. She was the “family and neighborhood mom”. Her door was always open to help raise and care for family and anyone who needed help. She adored and spoiled her grandkids. They looked forward to her infamous trips to the store and QT for “goodies”. She was adamant each one of her babies always had their favorite treat.
After retiring you could always find her playing “Candy Crush” with her Mavericks and two favorite beverages coffee by morning and “Bud Ice” by evening. If you stopped by on Sunday, you were in for a treat especially her peach cobbler. She will always be remembered for her huge personality, being an amazing cook, strong sister, and for the impact and love she bestowed on so many.
