Catherine loved and was deeply committed to our AWCA community.
She asked to be my sidekick — one of the two Amsterdam reps — because I think she thought, “If Lisa Janisch can coordinate events for the club, then so can I.” She was an asset in so many ways. She was a highly organized thinker, which I definitely benefited from having in, as I always teased her, my “secretary.” We laughed, argued, and then conquered. We truly were a great team.
I miss Catherine's presence in my life very much but feel honored to have walked many strides with my Amsterdam sister.
