Cathy Diane Tyson, 59, of Amarillo, TX passed away on June 15, 2021.

Memorial services will be at 1:00 P.M., Saturday, July 31, 2021, at St. Stephen United Methodist Church, with Travis Bennett officiating.

Cathy was born in Borger, TX on February 28, 1962, to Linda and Gene Tyson.

Cathy was the second daughter to the couple after Connie Tyson was born in 1960. Mark Tyson was the first son born in 1968 and then Michael Tyson was born in 1970. Cathy shared the love of the outdoors with her father, Gene, and enjoyed camping and dirt bike riding for most of her younger years. Although the family did not get to travel and camp as much in the later years, Cathy still enjoyed camping and especially getting together with family, both immediate and extended. She loved to cook, and she watched the cooking channels every day, sometimes experimenting with the dishes presented on the shows to a yummy effect! She was also an avid reader, and it was not uncommon for her to stay up all night to finish a great book she just could not put it down. She enjoyed competition shows like the Voice and would never miss an episode. She loved her grandson, Owen, and talked about him often. She will be missed by anyone and everyone who came in contact with her.

She was preceded in death by her father, Gene Tyson; and her mother, Linda Tyson.

Survivors include her daughter, Amanda Brookhart and husband Brook, of Hereford, TX; brothers, Mark Tyson, of Amarillo, TX, and Michael Tyson, of Amarillo, TX; sister, Connie Kerbel and fiancé Robert Solis, of Amarillo, TX; and one grandchild, Owen Brookhart.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made to Saint Stephen Adult Ministry.
