d. November 3, 2021

Catherine Hewel Christensen of The Hermitage Assisted Living Memory Care in Sylva, NC, left the cruel grip of Alzheimer's Dementia, for wholeness with Jesus our Savior on November 3, 2021. Cathy moved to Sylva in December 2016, from Jacksonville Florida where she had lived for over 40 years. She loved to read and talk about her Bible and her Christian Faith. She had a beautiful singing voice and loved to sing hymns about Jesus; and she loved little kids and cats. Surviving are her son, David C. Hewel of Atlanta; a granddaughter, Caitlin Hewel Feeney (Thomas), a great granddaughter Sarah Elizabeth; sisters; Wilma Hewel Assetta (Gaetano) of Burlington, MA., Nancy Lorimer Hewel (S-I-L) of Woodbury, NJ, and Gloria Hewel Stockton (Herald) of Sylva, NC. Cathy was born in Mineola, New York on August 7, 1946. She was the daughter of Blanche LaTourette Hewel (d. 4/20/2007) and John William Hewel (d. 1/8/2003); her brother John William Hewel Jr. (d. 5/1/2015) and sister Barbara Ann Hewel (d.10/20/2019); and husband Glen Alan Christensen (d.10/11/2011) No Services are planned
