Catherine is predeceased by her parents Richard and Patricia (Murray) Hendrickson, her beloved brother Richard J. Hendrickson, Jr. and her nephew Waylon Biernacki. She recently retired after many years as a Tax Collector and was looking forward to enjoying each day as it came. Her love and devotion for her dog Chip was everything.
