Cathy L. Piasecki

As told by Sarah Piasecki, Cathy’s daughter


There isn’t enough time or space to be able to properly tell you about my mom. She was the light, the love, the laughter of our world and always brought the party with her. She was the most loving, caring, funniest human I’ve ever met. She was “Whose Line is it Anyway” meets MacGyver. She loved many things. She loved to sing, spend time with family and friends, word games; but most importantly, she loved to laugh.


Although this amazing women, in my eyes was taken away too soon, even in death she still was putting others first. Our family honors her by trying to live life the way she would have lived it. We keep the laughter going.

Donation has made the worst thing imaginable more bearable. Donation has made my mom’s life mean something even after death.
