Cathy Grace Webster, 65, of Memphis, passed away at 11:10 am on Saturday, March 11, 2023, at her home. 

She was born on October 11, 1957, in Edina, the daughter of the late Elbert William & Betty Lou (Davis) Herring. She was a 1975 graduate of Gorin High School. Cathy married Michael Carl Webster on April 8, 1977, in Gorin, and together they shared 43 years of marriage together until he passed away on July 13, 2020. 

Cathy and Mike farmed for 15 years until Mike’s health began to decline. She then worked at Scotland County Hospital for 10 years and also had a mobile pizza business in the area. The “Country Pizza Wagon” was a great business combining her ability for cooking and meeting new people while also keeping the family close. Both Chrissy & Jeremy along with Mike’s mother; Dorothy, worked to help Cathy and Mike make a success out of the business. She later enjoyed caring for residents at the Clark County Nursing home for 14 years. 

She gave her heart to the Lord in her teen years, but in 1992, rededicated herself to the Lord. She loved leading many girls to the Lord as the Girl’s Camp Director at Camp Leeper for several years. Cathy enjoyed fishing, camping, coaching girls softball, watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball, singing and playing guitar, writing poetry and coloring beautiful pictures. Her husband and children are what Cathy loved and treasured most. Her precious granddaughters were the light of her life.
