Cathy Omori was born on December 22, 1948 in the small town of New Haven, Kentucky, as the second daughter among six brothers and three sisters of father Joseph Williamson and mother Nancy Williamson.

Cathy grew up healthy, but at age 11, she was diagnosed with cerebral meningitis, and doctors said her chance of survival was 50/50. She prayed to God desperately and overcame the crisis.

While growing up, she experienced the chaotic world of the ’60s. She was witnessed to in Louisville, Kentucky and joined the church. Soon after, she moved to New York, and while she was delivering the News World newspaper, she was assigned to the IOWC, and went to Japan and Korea.

Cathy had an unforgettable experience with True Mother at the Yoido Rally. When everyone was sitting down to listen to True Father’s speech, Cathy was fortunately nearby True Mother. Then Mrs. Choi told her to sit behind True Mother. She felt a little shy to sit behind True Mother, but somehow touched True Mother’s back softly, and True Mother turned her head around and gave Cathy a broad smile. We all have some kind of special encounter with True Parents, and this was a bond for Cathy with True Mother.

After the IOWC mission, she worked at the Good Health Natural Food Store on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. as part of the Il Hwa Company.

She was Blessed in marriage with Takeo Omori from Japan on January 12, 1987 in Korea. After coming back to the USA, she joined her husband in Florida and worked at a church-owned Japanese restaurant with her husband. Then she moved to Atlanta, Georgia, then went back to Louisville, Kentucky, which is her hometown. She worked at a supermarket for a while and retired. About two years later, she developed dementia then moved to a full care facility. Takeo spent every day at her side to provide comfort. Her physical strength gradually declined. At last, she passed away on February 20, 2019, at 8:40 AM; she did not have any pain and was peaceful. Cathy had a very meek and pure character all through her life.

    I had worked with Cathy in the Laundry Department. I remember her developing a baging system for our brothers and sisters. It was very safisticated.
    She was always sweet and kind to me and others I remembered her.

    Our hearts are sad to hear her departure, we wish we could have visited her while she was alive. My wife Susan and I used to work with her in New York, my wife said Cathy was her room mate at IOWC, was one of her best friends. We really miss her cheerful smile and steady heart to love God and True Parents

    I just learned about Cathy passing. As if Cathy is trying to reach me, I am thinking off Cathy so strong. Well!! Cathy I guess you join Karin by now. She went ahead of you on November 8. You are a wonderful person Cathy. Remember!? You promise to give me a child if I could not make one myself. I remember those time on house staff we gave our best shot in every thing we do. Thank you for your love and friendship. You have to promise to prepare a place for me in spirit world. I love you Cathy.
