Catherine Lynn Marsh, Katie to family and Cathy to others, passed from this life to her next.   She did not go alone, a host of family and friends are carried with her in spirit.   She was born February 11, 1960 to Lewis and Charlene Haas.   On September 16, 1989 she married John R. Marsh who survives.   Katie fought as hard as she could, but her cancer was rare, incurable and aggressive.   Her struggle lasted less than three weeks.   Her final days were in peace with family and friends by her side.   She was preceded in death by her mother, Charlene Haas and her brother, Marty Haas.   She is survived by her father, Lewis Gene Haas and her sister, Jane Ann Hymes.  Sons, Parker (daughter-in-law, Mildred) Marsh and Jube Marsh, grandsons Jacob and Jarrod survive along with several nieces and nephews.   Katie worked a total of 42 years for Sidney Kroger.   Most of those years were spent as the Floral Manager.   She was also known as an award winning gourd artist, “Daisy” the Clown, animal lover and a gardener extraordinaire.   She cherished camping and fishing with her husband and family.   Her winning smile, laughter and love of people will be missed by all who knew her and remembered by all.   Salm-McGill and Tangeman Funeral Home is handling the funeral arrangements and a memorial visitation will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 2-4 PM at Salm-McGill and Tangeman Funeral Home.  A memorial service will be held at 4:00 PM at the funeral home.  Condolences may be expressed to the Marsh family on Salm-McGill and Tangeman Funeral Home’s web site at:

We will miss seeing Cathy's sweet face every time we are in Krogers. She was always so cheerful and helpful to us in selecting or making just the right floral arrangement for our many occasions. What a great lady. Her kindness and compassion will not be forgotten...she really was a special part of our lives over these past 35 years. We feel lucky to have known her.
With love and prayers,
Steve & Susan Blatchly
(faithful Krogers customers)

Another Kroger customer, usually seeing Cathy 2-3 times per week. Always greeted with a warm smile and uplifting spirit. Oh how she enjoyed her life and so looked forward to retiring in a couple years. Always would be so excited about getting ready to go on another fishing trip with her husband and would always share her story upon returning. I was fortunate to have known Cathy over the last year and one-half. I will miss seeing her at Kroger and I am sure she will be greatly missed by all of her fellow workers. Rest in peace Cathy. My sincere thoughts go out to her husband and all her family whom she dearly loved. Sincerely, Flo Zimmerman
