Born in Yancey County, N.C., she was the daughter of the late Frank and Effie Hylemon Randolph. In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her son, William “Will” Cathey.

A retired teacher of children with special needs, she was a graduate of Ball Creek High School, before graduating from Gardner-Webb Junior College. She completed her undergraduate studies at East Tennessee State University, and received her Master’s Degree from Western Carolina University.

Her loving survivors include her husband, William Johnson Cathey Jr .; their children, Samuel Bryan Cathey (Mary Kay), Sara Cathey and Cindy Edith McCall (Michael); grandchildren, Andrew Cathey, Arthur Lee Cathey, Jesse McCall, Blythe McCall, Nathan McCall, Mary Juanelle Cathey, Anastasia Cathey and William Gregory Cathey; and nine great-grandchildren.
