Cathy Sue French, 63 of Georgetown, passed from this life into the Eternal Heavens on Saturday, July 10, 2021 at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana. Visitation will be from 11-1pm on Friday, July 16, 2021 at Kruger Coan Pape Funeral Home, 10 E. Williams Street in Danville. Services will follow at 1pm with Terry Goodwin officiating with the burial at Sunset Memorial Park.
Cathy was born on January 3, 1958 to Warren Dean and Phyllis (Henry) Baker. She grew up in Danville before moving to Georgetown in 1996. In her free time you could often find Cathy spending time with her children (and later grandchildren and great-grandchildren), as well as dutifully attending church services, and watching her favorite television shows (The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie were a constant refrain).
Cathy married Russell I. French Sr. on June 29, 1985 in the little church at Kennekuk Park, and the two just shared their 36th wedding anniversary. She also leaves behind her three children: Donald (Stephanie Rayburn) Baker, Brandi (Iain) Parris, and Russell French Jr; six granddaughters and three great-grandchildren. Her two sisters Vicky (James) Patterson and Denise Baker will also miss her greatly. Cathy was preceded in death by her parents.
