Catherine Ann Farrell
Sunday morning, my wife, Catherine Ann Farrell, peacefully went home to heaven. I'm at peace, knowing she is with our Lord for eternity with family and friends who share in our faith in God's love for us in Jesus Christ.

Cathy was born on March 12, 1951, in Topeka, KS. The youngest of four siblings, her sister, Soni, and two brothers, Phil and Bob. She was the lovely daughter of Philip Gordon Wizer, Sr. and Margaret Helen (Madden) Wizer. Along with many other of her family members, Cathy and I enjoyably shared many happy and fun times with this incredibly close-knit brood. Thirty years of marriage was fast approaching this January, and the years surely gave us many enduring memories of wonderfully spent occasions with family and friends.

Cathy retired with disability from Southwestern Bell in Kansas City around 1978. We met and married at Living Word, a non-denominational church with Pastor Austin Barton. Despite living with MS and its debilitating effects, I believe Cathy lived a long life because of faith- filled words of God-love, God-life, and God-hope continually spoken over her. Cathy lived happily and comfortably at home while receiving loving care by Emmy Pierce because of our extraordinary friendship with her and her husband, Wayne Pierce. Quality caregivers with beautiful hearts like Teresa Amaya and many others have also blessed us over the years. God is good!

Cathy's body, like my dad's body, is dedicated to "Research for Life" and will be cremated and returned after some time. Hopefully, the study of her body tissues will result in cures for debilitating diseases like Multiple Sclerosis (MS.)

I thoroughly appreciate the steady flow of comfort and love shown to us by family and friends. I've shed many tears of loss and happiness, remembering her past, but also tears of JOY, knowing her present. I especially rejoice that Cathy is now experiencing the fullness of life in God's finished work of glory because of our resurrected Savior! Love and peace to all of you, Tim

Cathy's spirit for life, and all the lovely people that passed through her and Tim's life, created a loving earth family that helped to keep her going well past the stage that many other's succumbed to the devastating effects of MS. She was greatly loved and will be missed here on earth by all that knew her and Tim.
