Cathy was born November 9, 1976, to Paul and Eileen Hoffman (Drexler), in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota. She graduated from St Mary’s in Sleepy Eye MN in 1995 where she went on to attend Ridgeview Community College in Wilmer MN. After moving to Minneapolis, Cathy met and married Charles Noble Wright on October 28th, 2006. They settled in South Minneapolis where they were eager to start a family of their own. Cathy’s devoted and caring nature made motherhood come naturally. She and Charlie were blessed with three beautiful children, Nolan, Ellia and Paisley Wright. Cathy worked for Children’s Hospitals of Minnesota as a Care Coordinator for the last 18 years. She enjoyed her job and loved her co-workers very much.

Cathy had a passion for people and a real zest for life. She was always up for a new adventure. Whether it be a road trip to a nearby water park/hotel with a crew of kids in tow, to parasailing in Mexico, going to Disney World with her family, white water rafting and concerts in Colorado with Charlie and best friends, or just enjoying summer days back at the lake with her family. Cathy truly enjoyed life and the company she kept. Her kind soul, quick wit and laughter permeated her surroundings wherever she landed. Her strength was admirable. Cathy will be missed dearly by all that knew her, but her memory will most certainly live on.

Cathy is survived by her Husband Charles, her son Nolan (15) and daughters Ellia (13) and Paisley (10) Wright of South Minneapolis. Her parents Paul and Eileen Hoffman of Sleepy Eye, MN.
