Catherine ‘Cathy’ McGill Pearson

(Continued)

NORMAN —

She enjoyed reminiscing about special times with her grandparents, a simple story of summers in Michigan, the gang of friends on McCall Drive and meeting Chris on the doorstep after an extended time away.

Of the many things Cathy meant to others, she will be most remembered for her deep loyalty and unwavering commitment to her family and friends. Her sharp wit, being the “cool chic that rocked the flannel shirt” of the group, and infectious laughter will be just a few of the moments that have now evolved into memories of our time with her.

We will treasure the time we spent with Cathy cheering on the Sooners, the Broncos and the Colorado Avalanche.

Cathy will be greatly missed, but will live on through the kindness and compassion she gave others and in our hearts.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Kermit and Nadine McGill; her maternal grandparents, George and Zibby McDermott; and one uncle, Jack McGill.

Survivors include her husband, Chris Pearson of Billings, Mont.; her parents, Mike and Elizabeth McGill of Richardson, Texas; one sister, Anne Hutchison and her husband Marion of Norman; nephews Matthew Hutchison and Tyler Belloni; niece, Grace Belloni; goddaughters Charlie, Mackenzie and Gabrielle Abbey; and her “four-legged woman’s best friend” Lucy.

Donations may be made in memory of Cathy Pearson to the Yellowstone Wildlife Sanctuary at beartoothnaturecenter.org/Site/Welcome.html.

Arrangements for Cathy and her family were placed in the care of the Vice family at the Havenbrook Funeral Home in Norman.
