Cathy Lynn Latner-Owens, 66 of Breckenridge, Texas, passed away June 3, 2023, with her best friend and partner at her side. Graveside services will be held at 10 a.m., Thursday, June 8, 2023, at the Breckenridge Cemetery with JB Sparks officiating.

Cathy was born to parents Jessie and Winnie Latner on May 7, 1957, at Fort Bragg in Mendocino, California. She spent her early years at Fort Bragg, then as a young adult she met and married her first husband, William Haney, there on the base. Most of their married life was spent in various places while he served in the Army. They were blessed with two children, William “Bill “Haney II and Sarah Wohlwend.

After the loss of her first husband, William, Cathy waited a long time before she married again. At the local VFW hall on a busy Friday night during a shuffleboard game, Cathy was introduced to John Owens by her match-making friends. After a trip to the casinos that same week where she is the only one that won anything, Cathy decided she wanted to get to know John more and they began dating. After their marriage in May 2001, they spent twenty-two wonderful years together.

Cathy worked many years for the Stephens Memorial Hospital, started out as a nurse’s aide and then became a Dietician until her retirement. She had many hobbies and interests, but a few of them were collecting creamsicles, frogs or anything else she might come across at a garage sale. Outside the garage sales, you might catch her shopping for a treasure at a Goodwill store. Cathy loved her four-legged family members, both cats and dogs. Even though she raised her dogs to sale, she wasn’t very good at letting any of them go. Cathy loved all of them!

Cathy was preceded in death by her parents; father of her children; brother, Roger Lee Haney; and a son, William Lee Haney II. She is survived by her husband, John Owens; daughter, Sarah Wohlwend and husband Adam of Tyler, Texas; and a brother, Roy Dean Latner of Breckenridge; along with all of her loved fur babies.

Memorials can be made to either the Stephens County Humane Society or the local Meals on Wheels and may be left at the Melton Kitchens Funeral Home office. Condolences can be made at
