Cathy Maude Larkins
Cathy Maude Larkins was born March 22, 1952 in Sphon Hospital, NAS Corpus Christi TX nearly 3 months premature with vision problems she endured her entire life, resulting in total blindness at the age of 61. The third daughter of Bowen and Lucille Larkins, she studied Art at Virginia Intermont College for Women graduating in 1974 with a BA in Graphics and worked in the printing industry for 35 years until forced to retire because of impending blindness. Maude, as she liked to be called, continued to do things she enjoyed throughout her life despite her poor vision, which included becoming a PADI dive master, traveling throughout Europe alone, climbing Ben Nevis, Grand Canyon, Appalahcian trail, painting and drawing and her favorite past time, distance runner. Undaunted by her disability, Maude had the attitidue that a person can overcome any obstacle if they want to do something bad enough and continued this philosophy for the rest of her life.
