Cathy Lowe
Cathy Lowe, 69, Rochester, died Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017, at Hickory Creek, Rochester.

Cathy was born on Dec. 16, 1947, to Robert "Bob-Spud" Tharp and Deloris "Dee-Mammaw" Tharp. A lifetime resident of Fulton County, she was a true cowgirl in her day and a proud farmer's daughter. Cathy was passionate about the family's livestock business and horses, and she loved rodeos. Also known as "Mammaw Cat," Cathy dearly loved her family, enjoyed taking pictures, and did not want to miss a precious moment of life or a colt being started in the barnyard.

Cathy is survived by a daughter, Dani Lowe; a son, Buddy (Angie) Lowe; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

A celebration of Cat's life will be 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, at the Fulton County Fairgrounds Community Building. The celebration will be followed by food and fellowship with friends.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Fulton County 4-H Fair Association for fairground and rodeo projects at P.O. Box 856, Rochester, IN 46975, or to the funeral home to assist with expenses.
