Catherine Spease, 90, went to be with the Lord on March 16, 2014. She is now at peace and is with her husband Arthur, with whom she had been married for 59 years. I hope it is a sweet reunion. Catherine is survived by her two children, son Terry and Daughter Cheryl, wife of David Wloczewski, and two grandchildren David and Michael, all of Sinking Spring. She is also survived by her loving dog Nikita, who stayed faithful to her to the bitter end. Catherine had a great sense of humor and enjoyed life very much. She loved cooking, gardening, and going out to lunch with the ladies. She was a member of St. John’s (Hain’s) United Church of Christ in Wernersville, where she was very active for many years. Catherine graduated from Sinking Spring School and McCann’s School of Business. She worked for several years prior to getting married for Textile Machine Works as an executive assistant. After getting married she, like many woman of that era, became a stay at home mom. She took this role on with great gusto. She prepared “Thanksgiving-worthy meals” every night of the week. She joined the PTA, Mother’s Club, and became a Boy Scout Den Mother and a Girl Scout Troop Leader. She was the best! Always there to sooth a sorrow, bandage a cut, or mend a broken heart. She will be missed terribly. ‘The comforter becomes the comforted’ We went there knowing there wasn’t much time. I wanted to comfort her and tell her it was okay to go, that I’d miss her, but I’d be okay. I told her she’d have golden wings in heaven. I laid my head upon her chest and cried, telling her everything would be okay, that she could go be with dad, and all our other relatives. With wonder, I felt this quietness take over the room. The paralyzed right hand had lifted and caressed my face twice. Though medically impossible I for sure without a doubt, felt the presence of God as that caress comforted my weary soul. A moment between mother and daughter so awesome it will never be forgotten. All of our family in the room felt the presence of something so much bigger than we could understand. Thank you so much for such an unexpected blessing. Good-bye Mom, thanks for all the terrific love and memories! Until we meet again.
