Obituary

Catherine (Cathy) Payton Purdy passed away at her home on November 9, 2022.  Cathy was born September 19, 1952, and was a lifelong resident of Cambridge, Ohio.  She was a daughter to the late Marilyn Payton Harris and George R. Payton. In addition to her parents, Cathy is preceded in death by her husband Fred Purdy and her youngest brother, Ronnie “Moe” Payton and her beloved Chihuahua, “Buddy”.

Cathy graduated from Cambridge High School in 1970 and worked 30+ years until she retired from the Ametek March Electric Company. She was a Christian by faith and member of the St. Paul CME Church in Cambridge.

Cathy’s interests included bingo (studying numbers), listening to soulful old school music, and visiting with family who all lived out of town.  She was an awesome league bowling champion in the 80’s. Cathy’s siblings recall her having a memory like an elephant and she loved to reminisce with family and friends. While she was confined to home due to illness, she maintained close contact with all her family and close friends and abreast of current local and world events.  Most of all Cathy loved her three grandchildren, Jordan Tedrick, Cambridge, OH: and her twin grandchildren, Isabella (Izzy) Grace Tabor and Parker Jaden Tabor, Clayton, NC.

Cathy is survived by daughter Jada A. Tabor (Dwan) of Clayton, NC and her son, James R. Payton of Cambridge, OH.  In addition to her children and grandchildren, also left to cherish her memory are her siblings G. Michael Payton (Joyce) of Gahanna, OH; Rebecca Brooks (Maxley) of Columbus, OH; Liz Lucas (Phillip) of Columbus, OH; and Bonita Harris of York, PA.  A host of nieces, nephews and cousins are sharing the grief of her passing.

A memorial and celebration of life event will be held to honor Cathy in the Spring.
