After starting a family, Cathie attended MJC taking business courses. She worked for Stanislaus County as the evidence clerk of Superior Court from 1980 to 1991. In 1991, she returned to do what she truly loved, being a homemaker, mother and grandmother. Cathie’s home was always open to friends or family who needed help.
