1974 Cathy Robbins Dibene
1956 - 2016
Cathy Diane Dibene, 59, left her earthly body on July 17, 2016.
She married her high school sweetheart in 1976 and began building her family. In 1989, with three young children, she was diagnosed with brain cancer and given a guarded prognosis for survival. Over the last 27 years, throughout her initial fight, complications from treatment, remission and her recent relapse, she remained a positive and faithful follower of the Lord and the Roman Catholic Church in her journey. She lived each day to the fullest, enjoying her love of music, reading, crafting and laughter.
Cathy modeled strength, determination, courage and faith for all who crossed her path.
Cathy was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. She is survived by her husband of 40 years, Robert Martinez Dibene, Jr. of Colorado Springs, Colorado; her parents, Jack and Lorene Robbins of Winnetka, California; her sister, Vicki (Jerry) Fenske of Sonoma County, California; her three children, Brian, 38, (Helen), Christine, 33, (Kim), and Natalie, 31, (Sean); and nine grandchildren.
