Cathy M. A'Hearn

July 31st, 2018

Cathy Marie A'Hearn, nee Schneider, age 61, passed away into the hands of God in the early hours of July 31, 2018, after suffering through an eight-month battle with Triple Hit Lymphoma.

Cathy was born on April 2, 1957, to Donald and Rosemarie Schneider in Evergreen Park, Illinois. She grew up in Westchester, Illinois, third of six children, and attended Divine Providence Catholic grade school, Proviso West High School, Triton Community College, and Northern Illinois University, where she graduated with a Masters Degree in Speech Pathology. Cathy worked in the public school system for fifteen years before finding her true vocational calling teaching early childhood at White Pines/Everest Academy Catholic School in Lemont, where she worked until recently retiring.

Loving wife of Packey A'Hearn for 31 years. Proud mother of Joseph, Brian, and Kelly. Cathy was an inspiration to countless students over her 30+ years of teaching as she absolutely loved children especially those overlooked or unpopular.
