Catherine Louise Gelhaus, 58, of New Weston, Ohio, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 14, 2021, at her home.

She was born on Feb. 13, 1963, in Union City, Indiana, to Virginia Caupp of Union City, Ohio, and the late Charlie Caupp.

In addition to her mother, Cathy is survived by her husband of 37 years, Dan Gelhaus, whom she married on Oct. 21, 1983; her children, Whitney (Adam) Wolters of San Diego, California, Wes (Kelsey) Gelhaus of Rossburg, Ohio, and Wade Gelhaus of Mililani, Hawaii; her grandchildren, Logan Wolters, and Nora, Tate and Isla Gelhaus; her brothers, Brad Caupp and Gordon Caupp, both of Union City, Ohio; her mother-in-law, Luedna Gelhaus; her in-laws, Dale (Trish) Gelhaus of Union City, Indiana, Peggy (Dave) Becker of Dayton, Ohio, and Mike Gelhaus of Woodstock, Connecticut.

In addition to her father Charles, Cathy was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Eugene Gelhaus; and her brother-in-law, Anthony Gelhaus.

Cathy can best be remembered for her resilient personality and outlook on life. No matter the challenge, Cathy accepted and tackled with everything she had. Together with Dan, she raised three strong children and dedicated her life to helping others. She was an avid sports fan who loved a good competition and spent thousands of hours in the gym watching her kids compete. Countless hours were spent daily with her husband on the farm where she was never afraid to get her hands dirty. Above all, Cathy loved her grandchildren and fought every day to be with them. She was loved dearly and will be incredibly missed by all.
