Catherine “Cathy” Dee Carlson, 61, of Dodge Center, MN passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, July 30, 2020.
Cathy was born on January 23, 1959 in Rochester, MN to Roy and Elna (Schlief) Hanenberger. She attended Mayo High School and met the love of her life, Rick Carlson. They were married in 1978. She had her own cleaning business for the last 25 years.
Cathy enjoyed many things including camping, boating, planting flowers, garage sales, spoiling her grandchildren and occasional “cousins’ night out”.

She will be greatly missed by all.
