Birth: Jul. 5, 1917
Shelby County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Aug., 2003
Shelby County
Tennessee, USA

Founding member of Oakhaven Baptist Chruch.
Former president of the Oakhaven Elementary PTA.
Retired from Sears.

The first thing you noticed about Catherine was her beautiful red hair. She was a very attractive lady through out her long life.
She and Big Haywood spent many weekends at Sardis Lake where they had a summer home. While he fished, she preferred to spend her time sewing. She made at least half of the clothes she wore to work. She would often make a special outfit for holidays.
She worked full time while taking good care of her husband and 2 sons, Haywood Jr. & Ronnie. Somehow she always found time for special projects at church and was the President of the Oakhaven PTA when her 2 boys were in school. She was presented with a beautiful Coo-Coo Clock from the Black Forrest from the PTA when her service ended.
In addition to their 2 sons, she and Haywood also had 2 grand sons, 2 grand daughters and she lived to see at least of her 8 great grand children.

Remember all those Thanksgiving mornings I helped you put the finishing touches on dinner while we waited for Big Haywood & Ronnie to come in from hunting. They always arrived just in time for dinner.Love from your "favorite daughter in law" (1968 - 1983)
