Catherine M. Sapp

Catherine M. Sapp, 79, of Mechanicsville, MD passed away peacefully at St. Mary’s Nursing Center in Leonardtown, MD on Friday, November 13, 2020. Catherine was born on July 1, 1941 in Washington, DC to the late Robert Woodward Moore and Catherine (Hammer) Moore.

Catherine was a hard-working woman, who supported her family as an Administrative Assistant for Suburban Hospital in the Maintenance Engineering division. Never one to expect anything for free, she worked until her retirement in 2004.

A proud mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Catherine loved spending time with her family. She was a doting grandmother. She loved to play with the kids and give them advice from her own experiences. An avid gardener, she took great joy in growing flowers, a trait she passed on to her children. Catherine also loved animals. She was often found with a four-legged friend sitting on her lap or talking to her parrot Rico.

To know Catherine was to know a kind, and generous woman. She could love deeply, and she smiled brighter than the sun; especially when she was near her family. With a wonderful sense of humor and a quick wit, she was always the family jokester. She knew how to lift your spirits if you were feeling down whether it was a self-deprecating joke, a big warm hug, or a relaxing foot rub. She will be missed by many, but none as much as her family. When the spring flowers blossom and the sun warms the earth, know that Catherine is shining down upon the Earth with love and happiness.

Catherine is survived by her daughter, Catherine Askey (Bob) of Mechanicsville, MD, and son, Roy Robert Sapp of Philadelphia, PA; eight (8) grandchildren - Roy, Andy, Angela, Travis, Brian, Amy, Caitlyn, and Sam; and six (5) great-grandchildren - Savannah, Avery, Andrew, Lula, and Charlie. She is also survived by her siblings, Wayne Moore (Sandy) of Monrovia, MD, Virginia Wigle of Tennessee and Susan Floyd of Ohio; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter, Deborah Diane Sapp and brother, Robert “Bobby” Moore.

All services at this time will be held privately. 

In lieu of flowers the family would request donations be made in Catherine’s name to St. Mary’s Nursing Center Foundation, Post Office Box 605, Leonardtown, MD 20650.

Arrangements by the Brinsfield Funeral Home & Crematory, P.A., Charlotte Hall, MD.
