After traveling from Hot Springs to Colorado and then on to California, Cathy met the love of her life Fritz Cole. The couple were married in Palos Verdes, California on April 28, 1989. In their time together, they enjoyed many adventures together including expanding G.F. Cole Corporation where Cathy became the Vice President.
As the years went on, Cathy and Fritz wanted to be closer to Cathy's parents, so they purchased "Rinky Dink Ranch" in Custer, South Dakota in 2013. Moving back, gave Cathy the opportunity to use the Vaquero horsemanship starting with the hackamore. She wanted to use this method, so that her relationship between her and her horses became a partnership. Her horses, Rosie and Trixie, were truly her passion.
Cathy made so many friends by helping on surrounding ranches moving cattle and just riding the hills. She loved every aspect of western life. Cathy was a cowgirl at heart.
Cathy is survived by her husband of 34 years, Fritz Eric Cole, parents Lloyd and Kay Flock of Hot Springs, South Dakota, biological mother, JoAnn Reedy of Florida, sister Dawn (Jeff) Jones of Otis, Colorado, niece Kylie Jones, and nephews Kaleb and Kristopher Jones.
