Cathy was born on December 27, 1953 in Monterey, CA to Vernon and Barbara (High) Pogue. She grew up in Phoenix. On April 12, 1974 she married Jack Godlove. In 1976 they moved to Indiana where Cathy ran a home daycare.

Cathy began teaching Sunday school when she was in high school.
Cathy loved spending time and playing games with family. Cathy was a friend to all, always smiling and positive, and her great love for kids and Christmas were obvious to all who knew her.
