Cathy Thorson Obituary

Lifelong resident of Great Falls, Cathy Thorson passed away on Friday, March 15, 2024 with her loving family by her side.

Cathy was born in Great Falls, MT to Alfred Thorson and Helen Osterman on February 13, 1956. She was raised here alongside her sister, Connie. They both attended Great Falls Highschool in their teen years where Cathy graduated with the class of 1974. Upon her graduation, Cathy began her lifelong career in food service. She enjoyed connecting with her customers and gave each and every one of them a memorable dining experience.

Cathy had a bright green thumb when it came to her garden. She grew everything from different flowers to delicious vegetables. It truly was her safe space. Not only was her garden a spectacle, but Cathy also made it a point to keep her yard in pristine condition. She would often spend her weekends mowing and landscaping.

However, she wasn’t just talented in the garden. Cathy also cooked the best meals on this side of the river. She would leave the room drooling and wanting more after serving her favorite family dishes. If she wasn’t cooking, she was outside camping and fishing. She truly loved the bright Montana sky and the wilderness that surrounded her in those times.

Cathy was a lively person, always making her family and friends laugh. She loved her family with all of her being and made it a point to spend time with them whenever the opportunity arose. She attended their events, played their games, and watched their favorite movies among so many other things. Her children and grandchildren were the light of her life and will continue to share her legacy for generations to come.

Cathy is survived by her daughters, Marvalee Jayne Singleton of Great Falls, MT, and Katie (Casey) Morris of Bonney Lake, WA; her sister, Connie Thorson of Bellingham, WA; and her grandchildren, Cooper (8), Clayton (7), Casen (5), Camden (1), Jaylee (22), and Julie (29).

She is proceeded in death by her parents, Helen Osterman and Alfred Thorson.
