Cathy Lee Wilson, age 68, of Biloxi, passed away on Sunday, December 18, 2022, in her home while listening to her beloved birds chirping and surrounded by her loving family.
Cathy was born Cathy Lee Pates on October 6, 1954, in Biloxi, MS. She loved owls and fairies and was known to have a wonderful collection in her home. She was known for her love of her collection of owls and fairies. Cathy also had a special love for her finches and parakeets that kept her company with their delightful conversation. She enjoyed talking about her fruit trees and the beautiful flowers in her yard. She would often sit outside to relax and feel the plants on her fingertips. She also enjoyed listening to music and watching old movies. If you knew her well, you would have a chance to dance and sing with her.
Cathy lost her vision in her early 40’s but that didn’t stop her from cooking (with butter), cleaning, raising her children, babysitting her grandchildren, and gardening. She was loving, nurturing, and protective over her family. Cathy never gave up on those she loved.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Ernest Charles Pates and Alice Mae Pates; and daughter, Elizabeth Ashley Rosal.
Cathy is survived by her husband of 30 years, Cecil Rosal; her children, Carie Toche, Maggie Burress, Allison Wilson, Andrew Wilson, and Marcus Rosal; sister, Sandra Holland; niece, Taylor Pates; great-aunt, Ernestine Rusk; cousin, Cindy Flowers; 10 grandchildren; and two great nephews.
