On Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022, our ray of sunshine, Cathryn Ann Mallow stepped through heaven's gates at the age of 54. She was adopted by Fred and Carolyn Morse and loved dearly by them and her two brothers David and Jon Morse.
She was a mommy to her daughter Amber Averette who lives in California and her son Dillon James who passed away in 2000 and met her at the gates of heaven.
She married her beloved husband Michael V Mallow in 2001 in California and they lived a life full of immense love for each other.
They moved back to Colorado in 2007 and bought their first home together which they fixed up and added on to as their three granddaughters Autumn, Emily, and Ashley came to live with them.
They lived in their charming home until 2018 when they moved to the land they loved — Creede. There they built their gorgeous dream home on Hummingbird Lane.
Cathy loved nature and would get so excited to see the wildlife on her mountains, the sunsets over Bristol Head and the fish they caught in the lake. Her life was complete, and her dreams were filled.
Cathy brought so much love and joy to anyone and everyone that she met. She would walk into a room and that room would light up just from her presence. Her smile warmed those it was directed towards, and her hugs made you feel like you belonged and never wanted to leave.
Cathy loved with her whole self and if you were on the receiving end of that love, you would walk away feeling complete.
She had a way to always bring a smile to anyone’s face either by a joke, a simple giggle or just her radiant smile. Her laughter was so contagious that no matter how you were feeling you couldn’t help but laugh with her. To know Cathy was to know love and happiness.
Cathy is survived by her Husband Mike, Daughter Amber, Mother Carolyn, Brothers David and Jon and Grandchildren Autumn, Emily, Ashley, and Gavin. We will be holding a Celebration of Life for Cathy Mallow in Creede in the summer of 2023.
