Cathy loved the Brewers, Jerry Springer, Kenny Rogers and Tweety. She enjoyed puzzles, and Cathy was most proud of the fact that she shared her birthday with Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Cathy was preceded in death by her parents, John and Irene Grota; father-in-law, Kermit Hood.


There will be a memorial service for Cathy at 11 a.m. on June 19 at Draeger-Langendorf Funeral Home. Visitation will be in the funeral home from 10 a.m. until the time of service. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to Racine Case Girls Basketball Program.
