Catherine “Cathi” Ann Brinton Fairbourn, beloved Mother, precious sister, fun-filled Aunt, and faithful friend, passed away on August 4, 2022, after a long illness at the age of 50. Cathi was born to Ted and Dolores Brinton on October 8, 1971, in Salt Lake City, UT. She graduated from Valley High School in Sandy, UT, in 1990, and later received her degree in Business Management at Salt Lake Community College.
Cathi enjoyed working with people and worked in a variety of office positions. Cathi loved Halloween, bowling, painting, crafts of all kinds and hanging out with family and friends. Cathi was a diehard Ozzy Osbourne fan and owned every song he ever recorded. You could see a smile light her face every time she heard one of his songs. Above anything else being a mother to Cameron, Kendra, Caden, and Kael was her greatest joy in life.
