Catherine Claire Waldrep Warren, one month from 92, passed away peacefully on October 7th, 2020 and has gone home to her Lord and Savior.
She is preceded in death by her husband Frank Caldwell Warren and youngest son Lance Marion (Susan) Warren, sister
Elizabeth J. Waldrep Mach, and Brother Thomas Marion Waldrep Jr, mother Laura Elizabeth Zenker Waldrep and father Thomas Marion Waldrep Sr.
She is survived by her sons Joaquin Denniston (Diane) and Frank Waldrep Warren, her 9 loving grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.
Catherine loved the Lord and was an active member of Wesley Fellowship United Methodist Church, where she participated in a weekly Bible study with her friends. Helping others was important to her, and she volunteered for years as a counselor for both Camp Pioneer and Camp Boggycreek, sharing her laughter and good cheer with the campers.
She also helped cultivate an excitement and love for books and reading in the children of her community as a member of the Northside Storytellers League. A lover of the outdoors and nature, Catherine also found joy in gardening, and even won ribbons for the beautiful flowers she nurtured as a member and officer of the Oakwood Garden Club.
Catherine loved her family, near and far, and treasured and saved every photo, letter, and card she ever received. She especially enjoyed family gatherings, celebrating the births of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and making trips to visit loved ones when she was able.
She was a loving mother and adoring grandmother, cherished by all who knew and loved her. She will be missed dearly by those she’s left behind, but her family and friends find comfort in the fact that we’ll get to see her again one day.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation, her Church or organizations she volunteered with as listed above.
A Graveside service will be held on October 17, 2020 at 10:00 A.M. in Evergreen Cemetery.
