Cathy Schwend-Weimer

Catherine Michele Schwend-Weimer was born on March 20, 1975 and grew into a woman who touched many lives.  Cathy left this world on February 17, 2016 to be greeted in Heaven by her grandparents; Elmer & Betty Bent and Bill & Mary Schwend, father-in-law Charlie Weimer, Uncle Dean Bent, Cousin Jodi Tuell and many friends.

Cathy’s life was a life filled with many treasured moments, with those who she loved most. She loved her family immensely and was happiest when surrounded by “her people”. Cathy was a gifted & brilliant woman who triumphed through many of life’s twists and turns. From early on in life, she was well known for her athletic abilities, which led her through a successful high school and college track & field career. Cathy married the love of her life, Kevin Weimer, in 1997, and so began a joyful and absolutely beautiful family: Kevin, Cath, Savvy, and Saige shared many adventures, never complete without horses, cows, and the occasional Weiner dog(s).

Cathy loved the Lord Jesus, and did her utmost to cling to Him through every trial. She would most want us to remember her as the loving, strong, and devoted woman she was: a faithful wife to her husband, Kevin, and a treasured mother to her daughters, Savvana (17) and Saige (13). She was a daughter to Lonnie (Elaine) and Darlene Schwend, and daughter-in-law to Gladys Weimer. She was a sister to Wes (Tara) Schwend and Stephanie (Hank) Scarber and sister-in-law to Randy (Stasi) Weimer. Cathy was a devoted aunt to Stetson, Shaniah, and Seannah Schwend as well as Jessica (Haaken) and Cliff Scarber and Jace Weimer. Cathy was a cherished friend to many people, friends, co-workers, and patients. There are many extended family members who are too numerous to list, but who held a very special place in Cathy’s heart.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33.

Funeral services will be 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 23, at Faith Chapel, please use the north entrance. A memorial fund has been set up at the Yellowstone Bank for Cathy’s daughters, Savvana and Saige Weimer. Donations can be made at any branch of the Yellowstone Bank.

    Wes and Tara, Darlene, and all of your family – I remember Cathy always being there to watch her big brother compete. As she got older I followed her athletic career in the newspaper.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I am so saddened to hear of the passing of one amazing, kind, loving, brilliant, talented beautiful, beautiful, beautiful on the inside and out women. She was a stand out among so many in every way I can think of. Of all, I looked up to her most. I still do. 🙂 With all of her incredible physical achievements, her greatest talents of all were her depth of compassion, honesty in all things, humbleness, thoughtful, loving and kind acts to all those around her, her faith in God and commitment to help others. She was certainly one that glowed from the inside out. 🙂 She knew how to make anyone feel welcome and genuinely loved and cared for.

    Her friendship was like a warm blanket we all miss.

    My greatest condolences to her sweet family, dear children and friends. All of you are in our prayers to have peace and comfort during this challenging time. I can only imagine the feeling of immense loss. She is with our Father in Heaven now. Embraced with such warm, peaceful, immense love. A love beyond what many can even begin to imagine. Her time here was so precious to so many. Her time in the hereafter will be even greater. She will continue to do wonderful things. Her love has no boundaries. Nor does ours for her. I am so grateful there is an opportunity to be with her again in the hereafter. If there is any peace, it can be in this during this challenging time .

    I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to have gotten to know her. My heart is full. Cathy will be dearly missed, but never forgotten. Until we meet again sweet Cathy. 🙂

    With love,

    Wendy (Hancock) Liechty

    I had the unique opportunity to compete with Cathy in high school track and field and although we took different paths after that I have thought of her many times, remembering her fondly. She was a special person that always stood out in my mind. I admired her strong heart, as she always gave her ALL in every race we ever ran. She has a strong spirit. She was also always so gracious and kind, a true example of humility in action. I did not know at the time what made her so different and special, but now reading of her love for the Lord, I understand. It was his spirit shining through her radiantly. I pray Blessings and comfort for her family. And may her spirit live on through you and the many others she touched….. In Jesus name. Amen.

  27. Jason, Wanda, Lindsay, Courtney, Ashley and Jeffrey Richardson

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. She is now with God and he will take care of his child

  28. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find strength in the love and support of family and friends. And may you find comfort in God’s promise to soon undo ‘all tears, mourning, pain and even death’ (Rev. 21:4) Please be assured that my thoughts and prayers are with you in sympathy.

  29. I just learned of Cathy’s passing. I realize you Keven, Wes,Tara and Darlene are hurting now. I want you all to know that I love and adore your wife and mother. To me she is a friend,coach and a wonderful understanding woman. She encouraged me to stop smoking. When I did she always ask “How many days Terri”. I quit with her referral to St Vincent’s quit smoking class. For 90 days she asked the same question. On the 91st day I started again and I was so ashamed of telling her the truth. You know she didn’t say anything but get up one more time than you fall. My shame went by the wayside. That’s how encourageing she was to me. I along with you folks and everyone else will miss her alot. If I can be of service let me know and I will do my best. You all take care of yourself . And Kevin even though I give you a rough time I love you and the children. Love and prayers Terri Hill
