Catherine D. (Booth) Carter passed away peacefully in her sleep with her family at her side on May 16, 2020 from a rare dementia called Lewy Body Dementia (LBD).
Cappi was born in Pontiac, MI and lived in Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham, MI. She earned a Bachelor’s of Arts from Alma College and a Master of Library Science and Reading from Toledo University. A longtime educator, Cappi’s career included schools in Michigan and California. She retired from East Kentwood High School in Grand Rapids, Michigan where she taught English, Spanish, and French. She married William Carter in November, 1964 in Long Beach, CA.
Without a doubt, Cappi’s two daughters and six grandchildren received her strong arms of love. When the grandkids came along, what to be called resulted in an interesting decision. Her husband’s name became Will and she responded: “Well, what does that make me? Wife of Will? Wow!” The name Wow stuck and is used to this day.
A love for flowers spurred Cappi to become a master gardener. Cappi volunteered her time with the MSU Extension in the office and out in the field, particularly at the Clare rest stop. Cappi also loved cats and most animals, maybe not little snakes.
Music played an important role in Cappi’s life. She played the piano and sang in women’s choirs in college and in the community. In California, she played the piano for children’s choirs at Walnut Creek Presbyterian Church, and the Orinda Women’s Chorale concerts were a wonderful celebration.
Cappi was always ready to explore. Going to Shakespeare plays at Stratford on Avon or Niagara on the Lake in Canada with her sister and friends were top items on Cap’s list. Whether flying to remote places in Mexico, traveling in Europe with her mother, sister, and niece, taking motorcycle trips, or living on a boat on the west coast of Florida, Cappi had a spirit of adventure.
Cappi loved to read and to learn. She had a strong faith that she fostered through her involvement with Bible Study Fellowship. She often said, “It never ceases to amaze me how much I don’t know, so I better get busy.”
Celebration of Life will be at the Clare Cherry Grove Cemetery for the immediate family. For those who would like to provide an honorarium in lieu of flowers, please consider the Alzheimer’s association, Brown Corners Church, or a charity of your choice.
