Krauss, Catherine A.'s Guestbook

I remember Cathe always having a smile on her face. She was kind and caring. We grew up in the Rochester 2nd ward and had many activities together- Girls Camp, Temple trips, sports games, and then also had some correspondence at BYU when she babysat my, then, only child. I remember she was so kind and caring to him as well. One big thing I remember about Cathe is her smile. At least once she shared some difficulties she was going through, yet she still kept her smile, despite the difficulties she was having. I believe her smile showed her trust and faith in Jesus Christ.

Dear Karl, Max and I are saddened by the loss of your sweet wife. You are so very dear to us. Max watched you grow up and has fond memories of you across the years. You are such a precious man and deeply loved. May Heaven pour out blessings of comfort upon you and your family. Love, Uncle Max and Aunt Dixie

Cathe & I were closest as teenagers in the Rochester 2nd ward. I think it's fair to say that Cathe & I, like so many teens in the Rochester area back in the 80s, loved dancing at Super Saturdays, and that we each loved finding each other. To Karl & all of Cathe's family, I humbly offer my deepest condolences. I join my voice with your chorus here, remembering her with love and deep affection. I'm in shock that she's gone. May Cathe's family & friends find warmth and comfort in the love and memories they shared & created with her.
