  3. I was so sorry to read of Cathy’s death. My name is Jeanne Weber-Dotson and “Kay” as we called her worked for my Grandpa at DeFoes Pontiac/GMC Auto dealership in Dickinson ND. I idolized her as a child and was always at her side at the garage. She was my confirmation sponsor when I was in the 8th grade at St. Patricks Catholic Church in Dickinson. I married and never knew she lived in the same city as I do. I am so sorry I missed the opportunity to visit with her and her family. I will always remember her fondly. She was a very special person to me. My best to her family.
