Catherine Boland Tice, 56, of Moneta passed away December 31, 2018. She is preceded in death by her father, Francis Boland, husband, Jeffrey Lewis Tice and brother, Thomas Boland.
Surviving her are her two sons, Jeffrey and Christopher Tice; mother, May Boland; brothers, Francis Boland (Loren), Johnny Boland (Re) and Patrick Boland (Gladys); and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Catherine “Cassie”, was a life loving individual who was loved by everyone that knew her. She was always upbeat and positive and wanted to see others smile. Cassie loved her two sons with everything in her heart and raised them on her own for over 18 years after the passing of her husband, Jeffrey L. Tice. She devoted her life to the children of the community as well, whether it be in boy scouts, volunteering at schools, or driving her school bus for over 19 years. Ms. Cassie loved her “bus babies” as if they were her own. She held a special spot in her heart for her animals, Goober(dog), Bob-e, and TT(cats). Those who knew Cassie will never forget her smile or her laugh. They were so big and contagious, people couldn’t help but smile and laugh along when she did. She had the biggest heart and was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring, compassionate, strong willed, funny, charismatic, and loving women you could ever meet. She will be missed always and loved forever.
