Catherine was born on May 20, 1942 in Bishop, CA, a daughter of Lawrence & Dorthea (Harris) Stone. She grew up on Yankee Hill, where she attended and graduated from Oroville High School, and recently returned from her 50th class reunion. She cherished her time with friends, whether it was playing bingo, gardening or just hanging out. She also enjoyed crocheting and knitting, and always gave her projects to friends or family when they were completed. She treasured the time spent with her children, and was never afraid of a challenge of hard work, a trait she passed them.
