Catherine Marie Bokach (nee Moll) passed away at the age of 59 on June 10 at Kingman Regional Medical Center, after a nine-month battle with lung cancer.
She is survived by Mark, her husband of 40 years; her children, Matthew, Melanie (Scott), Mark (Jennifer); two grandchildren, Amelia and Andrew; two sisters, Judith and Susan; and three brothers, Paul, Philip, and David. Cathy and Mark moved to Kingman in 2012 after retiring in Michigan and spending two years traveling around the Western USA in an RV. They were long-time residents in Bay County, Michigan and spent their early years in Sanilac County, Michigan. Cathy had a passion for travel, particularly experiencing new landscapes and wildlife in Africa, Mexico, Costa Rica, California, Utah, and Alaska. She made a vivid impression on all the lives she touched and we are grateful for all the memories that friends and family have shared since her passing. She spent her life asking questions, and although we will miss her terribly, we take comfort from the hope that she's finally getting some answers.
In respect for Cathy's final wishes, no showing or memorial service will be held. Family and friends are encouraged to honor her memory through a donation to the American Lung Association at www.lung.org/donate.
