Catherine Anne Mullikin 

Catherine  is the daughter of Cindy and Phil.  Cathy was a child of laughter and light.  Cathy was in college to become a teacher when as a passenger in a car on the Friday after Thanksgiving in 1998 she was killed by a drunk driver. 


Our daughter was born on 1/20/78 in the middle of a snowstorm. 
Her grandfather called her Cathy Anne and so we do too!

 "Cathy never knew a stranger"

She attended Manchester Elementary School, NC Middle and High Schools,Carroll Community College and Frostburg State University.  Her goal was to be an Elementary school teacher.  She was a volunteer teacher’s aide at MES. She was exceptionally good with young people, although she was very close to a woman 50 years her senior.  The woman still suffers from losing Cathy.


 She liked sports, played the violin and as a youngster she loved to fish.


She joined a Sea Scout group at age 14.  She liked all the water related activities and the camaraderie of the co-ed group.  As a Scout Cathy Ann volunteered at fundraisers and tutored other scouts in/about Scouting.  She helped to clean up after the Lions Crab Feast, parked cars at MVFD Carnival and volunteered at Winter Special Olympics.  She served as a Sea Scout Bosun, wrote a newsletter and received the Sea Scout of the Year Award.


She was killed 11/28/98 at the age of 20. 


We are all diminished by the loss of one
