Cathy Gayle Timberlake went to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 2, 2015.  A memorial service celebrating her life was held today, Saturday, May 9, 2015, at 1 pm at San Mateo Presbyterian Church with a fellowship luncheon provided afterward.  Family and friends filled our sanctuary and sang beautiful songs led by our own talented musician and singer, Andrea Wells.  Cathy’s husband, Lynwood Timberlake (an Elder of our church), shared some fond memories of Cathy and some adventures they shared together in their 36 years together (34 of those as husband and wife).  Pastor Larry Hadrava shared some scriptures with us and some of Cathy’s favorite things.  Cathy was well liked and loved.  We will miss her dearly.
