Obituary for Catherine "Kathy" P. Satterfield

Catherine “Kathy” P. Satterfield, 93, of Elmwood passed away at 4:26 p.m. on Saturday, January 23, 2021 in her daughter’s home, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on December 2, 1927, in Altus, AR to Carl and Elizabeth (Wiederkehr) Metz. She married Wallace Satterfield on July 24, 1948 in Peoria, IL. He preceded her in death on June 12, 2012.
She was a loving mother to her four surviving children, Larry (Sue) Satterfield of Brimfield, Betty (Doug) Dean of East Peoria, Tom (Nancy) Satterfield of Brimfield, and Jim (Lori) Satterfield of Laura and a wonderful grandmother to her ten grandchildren, Thomas (Lyzz) Satterfield, Laura Satterfield (Andy Mathes), Marsha (Rosalie) Satterfield-Howell, Sean (Michelle) Dean, Heather (Jason) Lied, Brian (Danielle) Dean, Mindy Satterfield, David Satterfield, Josh Lopeman, and Zach Robertson. She loved and greatly enjoyed her eleven great grandchildren, Vivian, Loulabelle, Logan, Ben, Chris, Jack, Henry, Violet, Oliver, Serenity, and Noah. She is survived by her sister, Betty Menold. She was preceded in death by her parents and eight siblings.
She worked at Palace Cafeteria and Illinois Bell Telephone. She also worked with her husband, Wally, on their Brimfield farm for over forty years. She was a long-time member of the Brimfield American Legion and an active member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church for over 40 years.
She loved the outdoors and spent many happy days gardening and camping with her family. She enjoyed canning, and the family looked forward every year to her delicious jams and applesauce made with apples picked from trees in her yard. She relished being a wife and mother, and it brought her great joy raising her children and watching them create families of their own. She was extremely proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and loved being involved in their lives. She could be counted on to be at car shows, auto races, concerts, recitals, sporting events, birthday parties, family get-togethers, or any other excuse to support her family or spend time with them. She never missed an opportunity to send a hand-written card for any occasion to both friends and her ever-growing family.
Many friends and neighbors have fond memories of her being there to help them in their time of need, doing anything from baby-sitting to giving people rides to giving away her canned goods. No request was too small and no one was ever turned away.
In her later years, Kathy was lovingly cared for by her four children. In her last 14 months, she lived with and was cared for by her daughter Betty and her son-in-law Doug, a challenging responsibility appreciated by everyone.
We would like to thank Spoon River Home Health Services, OSF Hospice, Rev. John Verrier, and our many friends for their help and support.
A private mass and memorial service will be held. Burial will be in Brimfield Township Cemetery. A celebration of life will be organized at a later date.
