Cathy was born on January 10, 1950 in Warren to Charles William and Betty (nee Hallock) Goodson. She worked for many years as a nanny and touched the lives of countless children throughout her years of working. Cathy also cared for many of the kids in the neighborhood throughout the years and was known as a "Mother to Everyone". She also bowled on a league at Fraser Lanes for many years, and enjoyed fishing, movies, music, and crosswords. Cathy was always a fun loving person, and could be found dancing and singing along to most any type of music; she was always wonderful to be around. Above everything else, Cathy valued her time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren. She was a loyal and caring individual who put other's needs before her own. Cathy was a truly courageous woman who would let nothing stop her, even into the final days of her life. Her smile and kindness will truly be missed by all who knew her, but memories of her will continue on in all who loved her.
Cathy is survived by her loving children Alan (Crystal) Alexander, Randy (Danielle) Alexander, and Paula Alexander; cherished grandchildren Kayla, Zane, Owen, Mara, Reese, Isabella, Charley, and Lyla; dear siblings Donna (the Late Joe) Frontiera and Charles Goodson. She is also survived by any nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Cathy was preceded in death by her parents and brother Randy Goodson.
