Cathryn Soppe


Cathryn Ann Soppe, 66, of Anamosa, joined her husband, Thomas Soppe, on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018.
Cathy was a devout Christian with many years of service in the church. She had a great joy over many years leading and participating in Bible study groups, including ministering to ladies at the Linn County Jail. Always giving more than was asked, her generous soul will carry on with the people she touched.
Cathy wanted to thank Dr. Jason Booth and his staff, the Ghosh Center and their staff, and the Dennis and Donna Oldorf Hospice House and their staff for all their support. In addition, her family and friends are particularly appreciative of the many wonderful neighbors and friends she had to assist with any need she had.
Among other family, Cathy is survived by her daughters, Carrie Soppe (Josh Northcutt), Sara Jayne (Rod Baldwin) and Jenni Jayne; as well as her beloved dog, Dion.
In keeping with her wishes, there will be no services.
Donations may be sent to whatever you have a passion for.
God loves and forgives all and this soul will be honored and protected in each of our memories.
