Although I did not know Catherine well, it saddens me to learn that she lived in Sacramento, in the same city that I have lived in since 1991.  My best thoughts for her family.

So sad to hear of Cathy passing.  I can still remember first meeting her in the student center when we were new freshmen.   We became friends, and I recall going to her parents house for a wonderful Italian dinner once, cooked by her mother.   Later we worked together in the department of learning resources, second floor of the library.  We wrote to each other after that first year, but soon lost contact.   I've thought of her at times over the years, but regrettably never made an effort to re-connect. I wish I had.  Rest in peace, Cathy.

Was glad to get the information about Catherine Inglima.  Apparently she was the younger Inglima sibling; we knew Christine and Mel.  We were familiar with Frank from the years we both spent as employees in Pasadena.  During that time I was giving many sermons/ettes in 11 Southland churches including Bakersfield where Dan and Chris Orban pastored.  We would drive over the Grapevine to that hot town, speak, then go home with Dan & Chris to hang out.  From the "survived by" list for Cathy, I see brother-in-law Dan but no mention of Christine.  Can someone inform me about her life status since we lost track of her and Dan over the years.  We were quite familiar with the Inglima clan and since Cathy was caretaking for mother Betty, I assume someone else in the family is looking after her.  Thanks for feedback.    JR

I guess it looks funny to say I was "glad to get the information about Catherine."  Obviously I did not mean glad to hear of her death, but glad the "obituary" was posted with info on her life and condition.  Semantics are always fascinating.    JR

I considered Catherine a dear friend and we kept in contact over the last 40 years since AC days.  I just learned today that her mother Betty passed in the same month of June 2017.  I knew that she had not been well and when I talked on the phone with Catherine a few weeks before her death, she told me that her mom seemed to be fading.  I did not realize that she would be gone so soon herself.  She said that she still hoped to take a planned trip to Ecuador the following month.  I told Cath to check for dates in June that I might come up to Sacramento for a visit. 

Cath was a wonderful human being, loyal and caring. She was the kind of person that would show up.  We shared many conversations over the years.  All I can say now is I KNOW SHE IS IN A WONDERFUL PLACE!  God bless you Catherine.  Thanks for sharing time with us on Earth.  You told me that you wanted to travel the world.  I suspect you will be traveling worlds!  You are loved.

So sorry to hear about Cathy. I tool an Italian class from her father a year or so after I graduated AC (being half-Sicilian, I thought I should learn a little). I also had a meal or two at the home of the Inglimas. The whole family was wonderful. Condolences to Mel and Frank.

In Memory Catherine A Inglima 1955-2017

Catherine got a big wet kiss..

Today we do greatly miss

Her laugh, her love, her concentration

Her joy of any celebration

Her helpful, focused loyalty

Her determined ways and integrity

Her love of adventure earned her this

Asian elephant hug and kiss

Jim Roberts, Christine died in 2013. See


Frank was my boss for 2.5 years when I worked at the Radio Studio. And Chris also worked there, as a receptionist/secretary, iirc.
