Cathy Linda Rossetto, 49, passed away peacefully on September 15, 2016 at her home in Anthem, AZ. She put up an extraordinarily brave fight against breast cancer for the past few years. She was surrounded by loving family and friends. Cathy was born on July 13, 1967. She was the daughter of Marcel and Rejeanne Bizier. She was the middle child. Cathy was born at Torrington hospital in Torrington, CT. She grew up in Enfield , CT where she attended Hazardville Memorial Elementary School, JFK Junior High and Fermi High School. She always had a thirst for knowledge and desire to enrich her life, which led her to take ballet and modeling lessons in her youth, study stenography and cosmetology after high school and most recently become a Certified Raw Foods Chef and Holistic Health Coach. She moved to Arizona in 1999 where she spent most of her adult life. She felt a very strong connection to the area. She worked in the medical field in Arizona until she could no longer work due to her illness. She was also extremely gifted in interior design and took great pride in decorating and was very creative. She loved to be outdoors in nature and went hiking on local trails very often.
However, her greatest personal accomplishments and satisfaction came from her children and grandchildren whom she adored. She is survived by her father, Marcel Bizier of Marco Island, FL and her mother Rejeanne Bizier of Enfield, CT; her soul mate and the love of her life Tony Rossetto; her sons Chuck Rathbun, Jr. and Anthony Rossetto, Jr.; grandsons Brayden, Austin and Liam Rathbun; siblings Sylvie Hall and Steve Bizier; nephews, Christian and Zachary Hall, as well as stepmother Barbara Bizier, stepsister Angel Fillmore and daughter-in-law Michelle Rathbun. She also left many other loving family and friends whose lives she touched every day.
