Catherine Ann Crist

1956 ~ 2007



Our beloved Cathy went to be with Jesus, on the night of May 22. She went to heaven peacefully in her sleep.



Cathy was born in Patuxent River, Maryland on Nov. 9, 1956. At the age of eight her family moved to the Rogue Valley where she attended Rogue River Elementary and Rogue River High School.



Cathy had an adventurous spirit and at the age of 18 moved to southern California. She lived there for 20 years and made many close friends. Cathy joined AMTRAK as a waitress and was with them for 15 years, traveling all across the U. S. Traveling was her passion.



Cathy settled down and bought a house in Klamath Falls in 1997. She loved her home and fixing up her yard, and she loved exploring all the beautiful country of Oregon with her dear friend Leo Baker and her friends from their singles group. She had worked at Mike and Cathy's restaurant for over a year and had recently started working at Pappy Ganders restaurant in Merrill.



Cathy had a heart for birds and animals. She had three adopted dogs that she adored like kids.



She leaves behind her parents, David and Dorothy Crist; sisters and brother-in-law, Stephanie and Leon Aspen and April Crist; brothers and sisters-in-law, Ray and Kristina Crist and Rex and Mary Crist. Also numerous nieces and nephews.



A celebration of Cathy's life will be held at Calvary Chapel, 1201 So. Alameda in Klamath Falls on Sunday, June 10th at 2:00 p.m. with Pastor Bob Langfield officiating. Disposition was by Pyramid Cremations.



Dearest Cathy, your family and friends will miss you so much! We know you're with Jesus on the greatest adventure we can only imagine!
