She was preceded in death by her parents; and her husband, Bernard Willegal. Catherine Margaret Warrack was born July 23, 1942, in Dalton, Wisconsin to James and Theresa (Marx) Warrack and was a 1960 graduate of Montello High School in Wisconsin. She was united in marriage to Bernard Willegal on October 13, 1973, in Montello, Wisconsin. This union blessed the couple with their son, Michael whom together they raised in rural Dalton, Wisconsin. Cathy worked alongside Bernard for many years on the farm helping where she could, and raising their family. Later in life, Cathy moved to Gibbon to be closer to her family where she worked at the Winthrop Post Office. To keep busy, Cathy enjoyed working with her hands sewing and quilting many cherished gifts for her family and friends. She also enjoyed spending her summers tending to her flowers and beautiful gardens. What she enjoyed most in life was spending time with her family, and especially loved getting to see her grandchildren grow. She was a member of St. Willibrord’s Catholic Church where she also volunteered with the CCW. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Blessed be her memory.
