Catherine Lynne Tousley, age 66, of Elmira, Michigan, passed away at 12:05 am Sunday, April 11th, 2021.
Cathy was born on February 15, 1955, in Jackson, Tennessee to Gladys Lynn and David Brooks Simmons.
She has affectionately always been called “Kissy” by her grandchildren. Not one for tradition, she enjoyed this nickname in lieu of grandma.
She moved around a lot when she was younger. Her family landed in Michigan, where she stayed and made her life. She has been a waitress, housekeeper, factory worker, and later in life, she acquired her Bachelor’s degree in Office Administration. Her greatest joy came from being at home and taking care of her family. She flourished in her roles as wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Her greatest accomplishment is the legacy she leaves behind with her loved ones, instilling her selfless love, and her teachings.
Cathy was preceded in death by her mother, father, brothers David and Cortney, and sister Tamra. She is survived by her husband James Tousley; daughter Courtney (Bill) Greenlee, twin sons Clinton and Chad Tousley; her grandchildren Bryanah Lynne, Abbey Marie, twins Anna Lise and Ally Lynne, and Eban James.
Cathy’s wish was to be cremated. A potluck-style memorial will be held from 3:00-5:00 pm Sunday, April 25th, 2021 at the Boyne City Eagles Hall, 106 River St. Please call or text Courtney Greenlee at 616-634-1535. Or email at Mamatigress26@gmail.com.
