Catherine Ada Ridgell, 74, of Ridge, MD passed away peacefully on December 5, 2014 after a short battle with cancer. Born May 1, 1940, in Great Mills, MD, she was the daughter of the late Leo Cullison and Madeline Ridgell Cullison. She attended school at St. Michael's School in Ridge, Maryland.

Catherine enjoyed creating seasonal crafts for her family and for her daughters to sell at local craft fairs. During the cold winter months, she was often found sitting at the table with a jigsaw puzzle and enjoyed the challenge of finding that "tricky" piece. Her favorite time of the year was Christmas and she looked forward to her Christmas Movies on Hallmark, UP and Lifetime Television.

Her greatest joy was the time she spent with her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed their company and pitching in to help whether it be working in the butcher shop grinding meat and making sausage, picking crabs and making crab cakes, cooking family meals during the holidays, or just sitting at the kitchen table and talking.

Catherine was predeceased by her husband, Carl, granddaughter Paula Ridgell, and sister Helen Cullison Angle.
