Cathy Alice Castle, 64, passed away peacefully Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, at her home after a short illness. Cathy was born in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, to Jay and Lucy Castle.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory her sister, Sandra Stalls (Dillon), and her daughters, Janet Williams (Tip) and Deborah Gross, and their children; cousins, David Castle (Anna), Karen Stackpole (John), and their children, Jeff Stackpole (Deborah) and Tracy Capewell (Mike), and their children, who affectionately called her Aunt C.C. Cathy was preceded in death by her brother, Stephen, who is survived by his children, Matthew (Becca), Shannon, and their children. She will be terribly missed by her loving companion, Keith Ballance. She also leaves behind many cherished and devoted friends.
Cathy was a successful businesswoman whose career as a CPA began with Brock & Beasley P.C. and spanned more than 40 years. A large part of Cathy’s life was spent helping her clients. Many were also her close friends. She spent the last 10 years at Jacobson Brotman PC. Her big personality and strong work ethic belied her small stature.
Cathy’s love of nature included hiking in the national parks of the United States and the mountains of North Carolina. She enjoyed daily walks along the shore of the Chesapeake Bay searching for sea glass and other treasures. Cathy also loved fishing and sailing the warm waters of the Caribbean. Her travels took her all over the world.
A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 11, at Spring Branch Community Church, Great Neck Road, Virginia Beach, with reception to follow. She will be returned to her birthplace for a private family service.
The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a charity of your choice.
