In Memoriam 

Cathy Lipsky, founding member of Southern California Catholic Home Educators entered into her eternal rest just before 5 pm on Sunday, January 15, 2017, shortly after receiving her last rites. She was 54 years old.  Cathy served on the corporate board as the original secretary for SCCHE, and was a SCCHE conference committee member for 16 years serving in various capacities. She was an original board member of the Dumb Ox Club Homeschooling co-op in Chino Hills and volunteered her expertise to the newly formed Orange county co-op for a year teaching speech.  Her love for her family and her “adopted” children in the homeschooling community were trademarks of the broad smile she had for everyone who came within her circle of hospitality and generosity.  Her smile welcomed visitors to the information table at the SCCHEE conference for many years.  We have lost a great friend while heaven has gained a soul who exemplified Jesus command, “to love one another as I have loved you.” (John 15:12) We extend our heartfelt prayers and sympathy to her husband, Tim; her six children: Carissa, Jenée, Erik, Mary, Joseph, Anthony and her two grandchildren.  

The Vigil, viewing and rosary, will be held at 7 pm on Monday, 1/23. The Funeral Mass will be held at 10 am on Tuesday, 1/24. Burial and reception to follow. Vigil and Funeral will be held at St. Norbert's Catholic Church, 300 E. Taft Ave., Orange, CA.  Donations to cover funeral and medical expenses are gratefully accepted.  Donations for the family can be made directly by clicking the button.
