Catherine DeMarsh-Hellwig, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away peacefully in her sleep on the morning of September 3rd, 2017, at age 47. She was loved and will be missed by all who knew her. As a member of her bible study group, she participated in many activities including weekly bible study and yearly bible camp trips. Her love of math will live on in the many students she tutored over the years. Her sense of adventure created many memories her friends and family will cherish forever. She never met a stranger; only family she hadn’t gotten to know yet. Everyone was friend or family to her and she made everyone feel as such. She had a huge heart with room for everyone. Each relationship she held was different and special to her heart. Her friend group was filled with “misfits” who all fit in with her and had one thing in common, a special place in her heart.
She is survived by her husband, Mick; daughters, Amanda and Ashley; son, Jacob; and three grandchildren: Kinsley, Jasper, and Spencer; her brother, James and a large group of family and friends. Her family will be holding a memorial service October 7th, 2017 at 12 Noon at New Life Gahanna with a small, intimate gathering afterward to share memories and connect with those she loved. (Light refreshments will be provided.) In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Catherine’s name to a veteran’s organization of your choice.
