Cathy A. Means, 67, completed her journey to the Lord on December 28, 2016, following a long illness. She died at Mont Marie Healthcare Center in Holyoke. Cathy had recently moved to Hubert Place in South Hadley, after residing on Gates Street in Holyoke for almost 40 years. Born on October 4, 1949, Cathy grew up in South Hadley, the daughter of Charles and Claire (Kelly) Bridges. She graduated from South Hadley High School and the Mansfield Academy of Beauty in Springfield. She worked as a hair stylist at several area salons, retiring recently after many years at D & D's Shear Happiness in East Springfield. She is survived by her brother, Charles Bridges, his wife Barbara, her two nieces Lorin Bridges and Kelly Bridges, Kelly's husband Joe Derrick and their son Griffin, all of Durham, NH. Cathy was predeceased by her parents, her beloved cats of 15 years Grace and Becky, and her siberian husky Shamus. A Memorial Mass celebrating Cathy's life will be scheduled for a later date. There will be no calling hours. The Barry J. Farrell Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.
