Catherine was born in Los Altos to Nancy and Jim Cole. She passed in home-hospice in Los Altos surrounded by her family after a 16-month battle with cancer.

Catherine graduated from St. Francis High School and UCSB and was currently enrolled in the University of Washington Masters Program.

She was employed most recently with Malibu Management. Catherine would not let work interfere with her favorite activities; being with family and friends, traveling, reading, surfing, running and skiing.

She is survived by her Mother and Father, Stepmother Kathryn Cole, Stepfather Ben Gundy, Brothers Tim and Matt, Stepsister and Stepbrother Tamara Ollivier and Matthew Ollivier, Aunt Carolyn Beery, Cousins Eileen O’Reilly and Elizabeth Cullen.

We will all miss Catherine’s wonderful smile and loving personality.
