Catherine Lynne Sheffler

Catherine L. Sheffler (nee Pelesky), age 68, died April 2, 2022 after a short illness. Born in Cleveland, Ohio on November 14, 1953 to the late Sara and Joseph Pelesky. Survived by her beloved husband of 47 years Russell E. Sheffler. Mother of Amanda (Roger) Bundy and Sara (Kyle) Millet. Loving grandmother to Grace, Sara, and Amelia Bundy. Baby sister to Sara, George, Sadie and the late Alice and Joseph. Dearly loved by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

With her bright and vibrant personality, Cathy was a mother to more than Amanda and Sara; "adopting" and caring for many extended family members and people she met over the years, even strangers. She enjoyed family meals and gatherings, cozying up with a good book, chatting with family and friends on the phone, and browsing the aisles of her favorite stores, always returning with "prizes" and bakery. She loved to travel, especially to warm weather places close to the ocean and beach. Remembered for her strong will and unlimited kindness, she will be greatly missed by those who loved her.

Cremation has taken place as Cathy wished. A memorial gathering will be held on Wednesday, April 13 from 4-8 pm at Busch Funeral Home, 7501 Ridge Rd., Parma.

Family suggests memorial contributions to Hospice of the Western Reserve ( or Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (
