Cathy's Funeral Service will be viewable below starting at 1:45 PM:
You are the very essence of A Servant of Jesus! Deep in the ministry in which you were called and raised.
Born in Detroit, Michigan to Harold and Aleene (Williams) Baugh, you were raised in a great southern family along with your sister Deborah (Nelson) De La Vergne, and brothers Gary (Sandy Ritson) Baugh, Bill Baugh and Don (Shannon Leake) Baugh.
Everyone knows your pride and joy are your nieces and nephews: Leah (Dustin) (De La Vergne) Rumsey, Joy (De La Vergne) McEachern, Crystal Baugh, JoAnna Baugh, Megan Baugh, Ian Baugh and Andrew Franks. Sharing that love and pride to the next generation of great nieces and nephews Micah Rumsey, Abigail Rumsey and Sadie McEachern.
Growing up in The Salvation Army, you lived in multiple places with the most influential years in Jacksonville, IL. Spending many summers at Camp Mihasaka in Bourbon, Mo. Attending as a camper and then later joined the staff. After graduating from high school, you attended Olivet Nazarene University and then The Salvation Army College for Officers Training. Each of these places making a lasting impact on you and where lifelong friendships were made.
In your ministry as an officer were appointed to several corps. Dodge City, Topeka, and Pittsburgh, KS, Peru, IN, Virginia, MN and Lansing Windsor, MI. While in Lansing, the Lord lead you another direction but while you did serve in the insurance field a short time, He brought you back to The Salvation Army. For the next 15 years, you have served as the Business Administrator at The Salvation Army Minneapolis Central. While an employee, you dived deeply back into the ministry. Helping give guidance to those who came seasonally for training, as well as those who were newly commissioned as Salvation Army Officers. While at the same time, serving as an irreplaceable “right hand woman” to many Commanding Officers. The last being Captain Blake Fewell who also blessed you in many ways.
You have been unfailing as a Servant. Always stepping in when there was a need and adding special blessings on your own. Never to be forgotten by those whom you have touched. From the kids in the after-school program where you helped with homework and scheduled an occasional “Cooking with Cathy” sessions. To the elderly woman who you would pick up from her home, taking her shopping and then back home. To the most important of responsibilities, sharing Gods love and Word with so many! Leaving a legacy to all!
On April 13, 2022 at 11:50 AM, God called you home and said, “Well done” and you were able to be reunite with daddy in heaven. On April 19, 2022 we will celebrate this great life of yours with family and friends at the Boulger Funeral Home in Fargo, ND with the visitation at 1:00 PM and celebration of life at 2:00 PM. Although during this time we will miss you greatly, we will celebrate the positive impact you have had on our life and your homecoming in heaven.
To some you are family, to all you are a friend! Thank you for being a friend. Traveled down a road and back again. Your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidant. And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew. Well, you would see the biggest gift would be from me, and the card attached would say…. Thank you for being a friend. Thank you for being a friend (thank you very much)!
Forever in our heart,
Those who love you.
