Jennie Rachel Catron Laid To Rest

The mother of the late Pulaski County Sheriff Sam Catron was laid to rest Wednesday.

Jennie Rachel Catron died Sunday at the age of 91. Not only did she lose her son, Sam, 5 years ago, but her husband, Former Somerset Police Chief Harold Catron, died in the line of duty in 1964. Her surviving son says Mrs. Catron helped their family through losses, but helped her community in ways too numerous to mention.

"Like the rescue squad, she was in the Cub Scouts, Boy and Girl Scouts. I'm going to miss a bunch so I shouldn't have even started naming them," Lewis Catron said.

Jennie Catron is buried in the Somerset Cemetery next to not only her son and husband, but also a daughter who died of cancer just months after Sam Catron's death.
