Cathy was a parishioner of The Church of The Beloved Disciple. She was active in the Grove City community as a member of the board of directors of the Grove City Chamber of Commerce, the Grove City Historical Society and the Children's Aid Society of Mercer County.   

Cathy was a loving mother and grandmother. She was grateful for her family and strong friendships. Her family wishes to extend their thanks to those who have helped and supported her throughout her journey.

Survivors include, three sons, Leonard J. "Len" Youngo and his wife Beth, Grove City;  Joseph E. "Joe" Youngo and his wife Lauren, Cumming, Ga.; and Christopher P.
