Obituary of Cathy Lynn Stallings
Cathy Lynn Stallings, 56, of Cynthiana, KY passed away peacefully enveloped in the love of family and friends at St. Elizabeth Hospice, Edgewood, KY on Saturday, April 9, 2022. Born on April 15, 1965 in Covington, KY, she was a retired teaching assistant for Kenton County Public Schools. Cathy touched the hearts and minds of many students at many different schools within the county during her tenure. A woman of enduring faith, she was a longtime member of 7 Hills Church in Florence, KY. When she wasn’t working, she could be found tending to her flowers or scrapbooking. She was also a prolific photographer, with a camera always in hand to capture a precious moment. Cathy cherished time with her family and close friends and loved “her girls” Doxie and Bitty.
Those left to carry on Cathy’s love and light are her children Cherlyn Benningfield (Scott) and Gary Stallings, Jr. (Will); mother Judy (Baker) Harney; siblings Gary Lee Harney (Stacey), Angela (Harney) Roberts (Billy); grandchildren Gracie Benningfield and Cody Stallings as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends. Cathy was preceded in death by her grandparents Clyde and Thelma (Watson) Baker and grandmother Helen Collins as well as her beloved husband, Gary E. Stallings.
