LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Catherine A. Gomez was born June 27, 1948, in San Jose, California.

She was a very strong, loving and caring person, full of joy and always fun to be around. She would tell you like it is no matter what.

She fought very strongly during her 74 years of life and never gave up! She always had faith and did everything with a good heart. She always opened her doors to the family and helped if she could.

Catherine enjoyed family time, loved her puzzles, telling stories, House TV shows, comedy movies and shopping.
