Copied from the obituary for Cathy Christoff Egerton at Henneke Funeral Home in Columbus, TX:

Cathy Christoph Egerton

Cathy went home, to be with the Lord on Saturday, August, 21, 2021. Cathy was just 66 years old. She was a joyful spirit, and an invigorating persona to be around, or even speak with on the phone. We all mourn her loss, at the same time we take solace in the fact she was a Jesus Christ saved person and is now in Heaven, with our Lord.

Preceding her in death were: her Mother, Dorothy Christoph, her Father Wilber Christoph and our daughter Andrea Davenport. We rest with peace in the knowledge Cathy is now reunited with these beloved family members, in Jesus’ ever presence.

Cathy left behind numerous close, much-loved relatives; Ray Egerton, husband, Rhonda Egerton, step-daughter, Mark Egerton, step-son. Brothers and sister-in–laws; Danny Christoph and wife Judy, Ronnie Christoph and wife Janna. Grandchildren; Amanda Smith, Jacob Egerton, Natalie Dvorak, Cora Dvorak, Skyler Davenport, Seth Davenport, Scout Davenport and son-in-law Mark Davenport, great-grandson Damien Smith. Cathy has numerous nieces, nephews, their spouses and children, all of whom Cathy was quite close to, loved dearly and was will to help at any time. Many spoke with her regularly. All were loved admirably by Cathy and she was loved by them in return.
