    Catherine was born July 3, 1979, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to K.

    She is survived by her parents of Nampa: two brothers, Christopher and Cortney Peterson, both at home; her maternal grandparents, Jim and Irene Crummett, of McCall; her paternal grandparents, Keith and Harriet Peterson, of Nampa; a maternal great-grandmother, Frances Mayes, of Salt Lake City; several aunts and uncles, and numerous cousins.
    A maternal great-grandfather, Art E. Mayes, preceded her in death.
    The family will meet friends from 7 to 8:30 tonight at Flahiff Funeral Chapel of Nampa and from 9 a.m. until time of services Tuesday at the Nampa Sixth Ward Chapel.
