    I was very fortunate to have known and worked with Cathy during her time on the UCONN Foundation Board and Investment Committee. She had a wonderful spirit. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I am so sorry to hear of Cathy’s passing. Her leadership of the Westwood Educational Foundation greatly inspired me and I will carry a piece of her strength and spirit all the rest of my days as she helped me get in to grad school with an amazing letter of recommendation she wrote for me. I so regret I did not get to say goodbye to her. She will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and friends, especially her children, as they mourn her loss too soon.

    God didn’t give us many like Cathy. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family. She was so very special and left us with many beautiful memories.

    It was a shock to hear of Cathy’s diagnosis and passing – she was SO full of life, intelligence and confidence, but I had lost track of her a couple of years after the Wells Fargo merger. What a huge loss, both to her family and society, as she should have had so many more years to be both loving and productive. While I not met any of her family, they have been in my thoughts and I pray they are sustained by many wonderful memories of her.
