Cathy Lynn (Hill) Wade
Cathy Lynn (Hill) Wade, age 60 of Mindoro, WI passed away on February 10th following a short hospital stay at Mayo Clinic – Fransciscan Medical Center in LaCrosse, WI. She was born on June 6th 1959 to loving parents Les and Sue Hill.
Cathy was a strong and independent person and was one of the first women to graduate from the School of Engineering at UW-Madison to become a successful software engineer.
Cathy loved antiquing and enjoyed attending auctions all over the Coulee Region to look for unique finds. She especially enjoyed finding old antique lamps that she would rewire and restore as well as looking for old valuable books. She really enjoyed the process of searching and finding distinctive collectables. She loved living in the country and walking in the morning with her dogs. Her other great loves were her grandkids, gardening, walking outside barefoot, reading and traveling.
She is survived by her children, Corinne (Tristan) McKittrick and Drew (Jenn) Wade, her parents Les and Sue Hill and her siblings, Beth (Dave) Krolak, Laura (Mike) Oanes, Karen (Jeff) Siewert, Jim (Louise Camillleri) Hill, Jen Sorenson and their families.
In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to your local animal shelter or local Humane Society as Cathy loved her dogs, and all of the many pets she had over the years were adopted.
A visitation will be held from 5pm-7pm on Friday February 14th at Zion Lutheran Church in Galesville, WI.
