We mourn the death of Catherine Haney. She was born Martha Catherine Robbins on August 28, 1917, and died on October 10, 2018, 101 years old. Born and raised in Brown County, Texas, she lived the life of a hardworking farm girl. In 1934, Catherine met and married John Haney, a marriage that lasted 67 years. In 1943, John and Catherine moved to Stratford, Texas where they would live the next 22 years. In 1965, they moved to Dalhart, Texas, a place they would call home until John’s death in 2001. Catherine would continue to live there until 2013, when she moved to Amarillo to be closer to her family.
Catherine loved many things: sewing, cooking, gardening, and keeping house. But most of all she loved her family. There was not a day in her life that she did not consider her family and its well-being and always worked toward that end. She loved both the communities she lived in, Stratford and Dalhart, and was active in the schools and later with Senior Citizens. Equally, Catherine loved the Lord and both Churches of Christ in Stratford and Dalhart. She committed her life to caring deeply for both of these, family and Church. She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
Survivors include two children, Joyce Dodson and husband Les (deceased), Danny Haney and wife Kathleen. Five grandchildren, Brenda Forehand, Dena Ammons and husband Drexel, Jonathan Haney, Marc Haney, and Christie Gray and husband John Gray. Three great-grandchildren, Johnny Forehand, Jud Seiwart, and Cora Brewer. Four great-great-grandchildren, Jordan, Lyric, and Kennedy Forehand, and Maybre Seiwart.
We request that memorials be sent to In Search of the Lord’s Way in Edmund, Oklahoma.
