In Memorium: Cathy Morrison
Cathy Morrison was a genuine, loving, devoted woman that touched every facility, student and visitor that she came in contact with at MSU.
Cathy Morrison was a genuine, loving, devoted woman that touched every facility, student and visitor that she came in contact with at MSU. Always thinking of others before herself, Cathy was both blessed by and a blessing to those she knew and loved. Cathy spent 27 years at Michigan State University and took great pride in her job and loved everyone she worked with. Cathy especially enjoyed the time she was able to spend with the students, extending them her help and kindness along the way. Cathy had such a giving heart and purposely looked for ways to give to others.
Cathy dearly loved her family, friends and her career at MSU. Her years of dedication and work afforded her both a happy place in life, and a family that loved her dearly. Cathy will be greatly missed by the University and all whom she touched in her time with us in the CM program.
Douglas Cron, retired CM faculty member, said, “Cathy Morrison was someone the entire faculty and staff could always count on to do what it took to get the job done no matter how long it would take, typically being under tight time frames she did not create. Never any complaints. Even on her vacation days we would often see Cathy in the office making sure everything was being done just because she really cared. The students turned to Cathy like their Mother away from home. She would always do her best to help them no matter what situation they were facing. Then there was Cathy’s tremendous cooking talent. Always birthday cakes for faculty and staff, holiday treats that would make your mouth water always wanting more and all home cooked. What a wonderful person and terrible loss for all of us.“
