The righteous life of Cathy Stokes
Neat story of a woman seems to live the word through her actions and is not
afraid to speak up when things need improvement. Thank you Ms. Stokes for a
lifetime of service to Gods's children (us). Best of everything to you.
Great story about a great person.Keep up the good work Sister
Cathy "adopted" me in 1999 while I was a lonely student in Chicago. She
didn't have to take and interest in me...I was just an 18 month interloper
in her ward while I worked on my graduate degree. Yet, she recognized my need,
sought me out...fed me and gave me advice when I needed it the most. Her direct manner and keen sense of humor combine to make her one of the most
quotable people I've ever known. When I informed her that I had a new
girlfriend (now my wife) she gave me a colorful lecture on remaining chaste.
Funny stuff...but totally from her heart. A few years ago we
received a postcard of the Sydney Opera House. On the back it said "If you
haven't done this....DO IT! Love, Cathy." I love Cathy.

Great article on a great person. As a former member of the Hyde Park
Branch/Ward, I can confirm what a great person Cathy is and how well loved she
Such a good story about a wonderful woman. I can just imagine how great it
would be to be around her.
God bless you Sister Stokes!
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful story. Sister Stokes, may you be an
instrument in God's hands always! You inspire me to try a little harder to
be a little better.
Just one more family whose life was blessed by wonderful Sister Stokes.Thanks, Cathy!
I met Sis Stokes a few years ago in Boston, after using her testimony video a
lot on my mission, I almost felt I already knew her. What a great lady, and it
was honor to shake her hand and call her sister.
Cathy Stokes, adopted me 16, years ago. I was 22 had just "inherited" 7
kids and Keith and I found out we were expecting... My parents had both suffered
from debilitating illnesses and I felt alone. Mama Cathy, was my angel, and has
been an angel to my children. If not for the Love of GRANDMA Cathy, my kids
would not know a grandmother. We love Cathy Stokes!
