Catherine Robinson Caldwell departed this life February 8, 2021 at her home with her husband George by her side.

She professed faith in Jesus Christ at an early age at Burdick AME Church in Campbellsville. She graduated as class Salutatorian from Durham High School. After her marriage to George February 15, 1949, she united with Pleasant Hill Baptist Church and served 71 years as Minister of Music, pianist, Deacon's Wife, missionary, Sunday School teacher, Vacation Bible School teacher, and helped in food service as needed.



Catherine worked alongside her husband and together they raised 12 children on their grade A dairy farm. Their hard work and determination to succeed earned them several awards and the Governors recognition for their innovative farm practices with the help of the agents at the Farmers Home Administration. When they retired from farming in 1999, she was often found checking on the day-to-day operations of the farm. They often talked of how things had changed since they started farming in 1949. They were the dynamic duo. She loved unconditionally as a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. She never met a stranger and had a genuine love for children of all ages. Her laughter, kindness, and love will be missed by all of us.

Catherine was born December 29, 1929 to Lafe and Cecil Bridgewater Robinson in Campbellsville who preceded her in death; She is also preceded in death by two brothers, Paul and James Allen Robinson; one son, George Caldwell, Jr.; and one grandson Marcus Caldwell.
