Catherine Juanita Dutschke Cowan, 87, of Owensboro, passed away Wednesday, January 11, 2023, at the Heartford House while under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky. She was born July 23, 1935, in Holt, Kentucky to Herman C. and Dorris Rush Dutschke. During her high school years at Breckenridge County High School, she was voted Class Clown by her senior class.

 

Catherine retired from E.M. Ford Insurance after working for more than 30 years in the insurance business. She was a member of First Presbyterian church where she sang in the choir. Catherine loved little children that brought her to teach kindergarten Sunday school class at Riverside Presbyterian and St. Andrew Presbyterian. She also taught Bible School every year. Catherine faithfully worked the church property committee for more than twenty years. She regularly attended Sunday School and took two of her great granddaughters with her. Catherine loved traveling and as a member of the PrimeTimers group she coordinated several trips for them. She loved traveling with her husband and one of their favorite places to visit was Branson, Missouri. Catherine loved knitting, crocheting, reading, and gardening. She was a people person and loved working at the Help Office and at the polls on election day so she could talk to everyone.

 

She was also preceded in death by her husband after 51 years of marriage; a brother, Walter J. Dutschke.

 

Catherine is survived by a loving family, Gary W. Cowan, Jeffery A. Cowan, Stephen M. Cowan, and Christopher S. Cowan; one sister, Margarea Austin of Mt. Vernon Indiana; and a brother, Herman E. Dutschke of Falls of Rough, KY; 6 grandchildren; and 18 great grandchildren.
