Cathy Ann (Brace) Wade, 52

Cathy A. Wade, 52, passed away on Friday, April 2, 2010, at the Indian River Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center in Granville following a short illness.

Cathy was born on April 22, 1957, in Granville, the daughter of Clarence L. (Pete) Brace and Marian (Schmidt) Brace.

Cathy was employed as a cook at the Hen House Restaurant, and was a member of the Wells (Vt.) Methodist Church. Cathy enjoyed growing flowers and vegetables; it was a joy to her to can the bounties of her garden, along with baking and cooking. Her creative side was expressed in stained glass projects. But the best times were those spent with family, and she loved spending time at their camp, “Self-made Camp Run Amuck.” Pure pleasure was floating down the creek there with her companion, Bruce.

Cathy was predeceased by her father, Clarence Brace, on Jan. 10, 2010.

Survivors are her mother, Marian; daughters Gretchen Stranahan and her husband, John, of Queensbury  and their children John, Katie, Jordan, Amber and Abbie, and Alicia Davis and her husband, Todd, of Fort Ann and their children Zach and Jared; and her son, David Rathbun and his wife, Liz, and their children Jadah, Piper and Keira, all of Whitehall. She is also survived by her brother, Mark Brace, and his wife, Patricia, of Wells, Vt.; and her nephew, Brian Brace, his wife, Shannon, and their son Braeden of Naples, Fla. She also leaves behind her companion, Bruce Wilson, and her trusted friend of nearly 20 years, her dog Rusty.

Calling hours will be held on Wednesday, April 7, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville. On Thursday, April 8, at 4 p.m., there will be a gathering to celebrate and remember Cathy’s life at the Country Meadows Golf Course Clubhouse in Fort Ann.

Special thanks are extended to Fort Ann Rescue Squad, Indian River Nursing Home and the C.R. Wood Cancer Center for their kindness and care to Cathy.
