GARDEN CITY, Utah - Catherine Irene Lewis Pope, 57, returned to her Heavenly Father
on Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2010.
Cathy was born April 21, 1953, in Montpelier, Idaho, to Calvert and Agnes Lewis.
She grew up in the Bear Lake Valley and was the youngest of six children. At the age of
16 her mother passed away, leaving Cathy as the only child at home. She assumed
responsibility for the household and developed self-reliance and determination.
In 1971, Cathy married her eternal companion, Howard Max Pope and they were sealed in
the Logan, Utah Temple.
Cathy was mother to five children for whom she devoted her life. Her children learned
the importance of provident living through her example of finding a good bargain and
stretching a dollar. She was never idle and thoughtfully performed many acts of service
without thought of recognition.
By fostering an atmosphere of love, she created a home that nurtured deep family unity.
Using her home as her canvas, Cathy's unending creativity made her a true homemaker in
every sense of the word. She enjoyed working with her hands through gardening, carpentry,
cooking, sewing and quilting. This desire to develop and share of their talents is
instilled in her children.
Cathy served valiantly in many church callings throughout her life. Her deep personal
testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ resonated among all who knew her. She leaves
behind a rich legacy of faith and family to her children and grandchildren.
Cathy is survived by her husband, Howard, of Garden City, Utah; her children, Kerrie
Taylor (Toby) of Lehi, Utah, Courtney Guymon (Chris) of Smithfield, Utah, Candice Eborn
(Stephen) of Pueblo, Colorado, Cami McCabe (Patrick) of Queen Creek, Arizona, Nicholas
Pope of Provo, Utah; and 12 beautiful grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her
parents and one elder brother.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, October 9, 2010, at 11 a.m. at Garden City
Chapel, 65 South Bear Lake Blvd., with Bishop Howard M. Pope conducting. Friends may call
prior to the service from 9:30 to 10:50 a.m. A viewing will be held on Friday from 6 to 8
p.m. at Matthew's Mortuary, 702 Clay Street in Montpelier, Idaho. Interment will be in
the Garden City Cemetery.
