Catherine Sherertz Joppich passed from this world on Monday December 21st, 2020. Caty was the daughter of Carl Sherertz and Barbara Sherertz. She graduated from Mary Washington College.

Surviving are her husband, William Joppich, her daughter, Anna and son David; her brother Jay Sherertz and sister Mary Claiborne Frye. She had many other friends and family in her life and everyone who knew her knows she was one of the most kind, strong, creative and honest person that they were lucky to have known. Her loving spirit will be with all forever.

Many of my memories are how much I enjoyed our years of Book and Bible study. Caty was such a loved member of our group. But my favorite times were our discussions while sitting on their porch with her Mom. We had such meaningful and often funny conversations. Frankly, I don't think I can think of a more kind-hearted person than Caty. The world is a bit diminished without her personal presence but as with most bright spirits her light will shine forever. I am better for having known her. My heart and prayers are with her family...... Love, Jamie Waldrop

I am so sorry for the loss of sweet Caty. Anna and David, I loved your Mom so much. She was a special person. She was a dear friend to my friend Wanda Gail and painted a beautiful cow on her kitchen floor!!! I will never forget it! Anna and David you will remember me as Mrs. Thomas, the aide at Crystal Spring Elem. when you went there. Bill, I am not sure if we ever met but, I am so sorry for your loss. Jay and Mary Claiborne you two will be in my prayers as the rest of the family. God Bless all of you. Thank the Lord for memories. Debra McKee Thomas
