Catherine Heyl, age 89, of Oldsmar, FL, passed away on December 10th, 2022, to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at the
Orchid Cove in Oldsmar, FL, following a bout with pneumonia.

On June 21, 1933, she was born in St. Louis, Mo. to parents Ira and Helen McGartland. In April, 1963, she married Jack Heyl in Washington DC. Together, they shared 49 years of marriage.

Katy was a loving wife to Jack and a caring mother to her three children Sheri, Bryan, and Matt. She volunteered her time in the
political arena and had a passion for Health and Nutrition. She opened her own Health Food Store in Pensacola Florida. While in
Pensacola, she also became the Food Services Director at the school her children attended. After moving to Kansas City, MO Katy worked
with the Missouri Christian Coalition supporting conservative politics and politicians. All the while taking care of her kids at home and
being there for them every day when they returned home from school.

Katy was predeceased by her husband, Jack Heyl, and son Bryan Heyl. She is survived by her daughter, Sheri Heyl, and son Matt Heyl.

Her heart for family and friends and love for Jesus has always been a beacon of hope and humility. She was a shining example of the
Proverbs 31 woman, mother, caregiver, entrepreneur, and grandmother. Her joy, love, smile, and laughter will always be
remembered. Her memory will live on eternally in fondness & honor in our hearts as she is now home with her Jesus; husband, Jack (of
49 years); and son, Bryan.
