Cathy Jane Thomas


With hearts filled with sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved and beautiful Cathy Thomas, 59, on July 27, 2018, after a five-year battle with cancer. She fought with courage and grace, always staying positive and refusing to accept defeat.
Cathy's Rosary service 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 31. A memorial service is 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1. Both services are at Wiley's Funeral Home in Glen Rose, Texas.
Catherine Jane was born March 13, 1959, in San Diego, Calif., to Joe and Berdonna Gomez. She married her high school sweetheart, Toby Thomas, on December 30, 1978 in Mineral Wells, Texas. Shortly after marriage, Cathy and Toby moved to Idaho with the U.S. Navy. After years at Navy bases on the east coast, they returned to Texas in 1983 to raise their family in Glen Rose. Cathy enjoyed swimming, traveling and surrounding herself with children. Cathy had an immense love for dolphins and achieved a lifelong dream of swimming with dolphins in Hawaii on Christmas Day 2011. Later in life, Cathy enjoyed her years working as the Somervell County elections administrator. She spent her last years spoiling her grandson Troy and her great-niece Kinsleigh.
Cathy is survived by her husband of almost 40 years, Toby Thomas; parents, Joe and Berdonna Gomez; daughter, Jennifer Masby; son, Joseph Thomas and wife, Casey; beloved grandson, Troy Thomas; brother, David Gomez and wife, Tammy; brother-in-laws, Bill Thomas and wife Rhonda, Tracy Thomas and Dennis McCarthy; sister-in-law, Bunny Owens; dear friends, Nancy Bodoh and Jimmy Milton; numerous nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews; and countless friends.
She was preceded in death by her twin daughters, Cathryn Mygnonne and Dåna Marie; sister, Marie McCarthy; and brother, Michael Gomez.
Donations in Cathy's honor may be made to the Somervell County Cancer Support Group (P.O. Box 152, Glen Rose, TX 76043) or your local humane society.
