Catherine Elizabeth McMahan, 95, of East Ridge, went home to be with her Lord on June 11, 2017.

She worked in food services at East Ridge Junior High School for many years, serving food and smiles to many young people. For much of her life, as her health would allow, she was an active member of East Ridge Baptist Church, bringing her warm and welcoming spirit every Sunday.

She loved and served her Lord faithfully and lived comforted by his work in John 3:16. In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by her husband Roscoe T. McMahan.
