Admin. note: The Social Security Death Index gives her day of death as April 14, 2002. Information from her oldest grandson, David P. Campbell, states that she died on April 17th, two days after her 92nd birthday. He also states the reason the second obituary was published more than a year later was because two of her grandsons were expectant fathers at the time she passed away, and the family elected to wait until the following spring to hold services for her. In addition, the full name of Catherine's brother is William Cody SMITH.
Thank you, David, for your information and insight!
