Mom's ambition was to be a camp director. Here she is in Vermont at age 17.

Catherine Anne Cox Veatch
Mom, Mary, Suzie Grice, Andrea, Laura, Tom. 1970?
Liz, a friend of Cathy
Cathy lived with me and Tom (splitting her time with Andrea) for a little over a year before she went into assisted living. This was a common scene at our kitchen table during that time. Tom was so happy to have this time with his mom!! As was Andrea. And it was an invaluable experience for me to get to know her. Cathy never once complained in all the time I knew her. She faced her aging gracefully and with dignity. She was a force, without really having this desire. She was also very curious and interested in what comes next, after passing.
Cathy Veatch is my mother.
