Cathleen (Cathy) Wainwright

Henderson, Nevada – Age 59, retired Senior City Marshal, passed away April 29, 2019. Cathy was born in Brooklyn, NY on December 21, 1959 to Rose and John Francis Wainwright.

Cathy spent her life serving others – she dedicated 25 years working with the city of Henderson both as a Court and Senior City Marshal, and 8 years in the NYPD. She touched many lives both personally and professionally. She had a way of making everyone she met feel like the most important person on Earth. Cathy’s mantra of “peace and love” was always present through her warm, genuine way. Cathy was there for anyone, anytime to be able to give words of wisdom and encouragement and was a huge animal lover. Cathy could light up the darkest room with her bright smile and contagious laugh. Cathy devoted the last 13 years of her life to her beloved wife whom she loved completely and whole-heartedly. Cathy’s beautiful and peaceful spirit will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate enough to cross paths with her.

Cathy is survived by her loving wife Denise Monroe; loving mother Rose; brothers John (Denise) Wainwright, Michael (Deborah) Wainwright; sister Gail (Michael) O’Brien; and her sister-in-law Cynthia; step-children Christopher (Sheena) Spinella, Anthony (Danielle) Spinella; Brittany (Peter) Tubbs, and Rachele Crittenden; 8 grandchildren; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and of course her beloved dog Frankie.
Cathy was preceded in death by her father John Francis; her brother Joseph; and her beloved pets Markie, Oso, Charlie and Bodie.

Memorial Service will be held to honor Cathy on Monday, May 6, 2019 at 11am at the Center for Spiritual Living Greater Las Vegas located at 1420 E. Harmon Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89119. A gathering of friends will follow at Sunset Park (Bristlecone picnic area) 2601 East Sunset Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89120.

There will be a service in New Jersey at a later date for Cathy.

    To the family and loved ones of Cathleen Wainwright, who we know will be dearly missed. Almighty God promised at Revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. And death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. So, you can take great comfort from drawing close to God in prayer. He will help sustain and support all of you to endure during these difficult times. My deepest condolences.

    I am full of mixed emotions. You told me in 2008 that you were disappointed about my choices. That was the very last time we spoke. Before that you were my main support system in changing my life around for good. Court ordered yes but you put your heart into your work and for that I am eternally grateful! The words you spoke were honest and always ended on a positive note. I was in need of encouragement and went to the court when they told me you retired years ago then they said you had passed away.
    I guess God had better plans for you. . . Thank you for everything. My heartfelt sympathy to your loved ones who I know are missing you now.

    I am many years late and I had tried to reach you previously but never heard a response. I wanted to thank you with all of my heart for being such a positive catalyst in my life. I really loved to visit you and we had such a beautiful synchronicity regarding Abraham Hicks.

    I cried after finding out you have transitioned in the next adventure of your souls journey. I was going to send you a photo of a post it note you wrote me “Remember to listen to you’re inner voice!” It have traveled the world with this tiny post- it framed. This is how much you have influenced my life is a beautiful way. Thank you for your service and your work in this lifetime. Your soul is truly one-of-kind.

    You are missed!

    – Yvonne
