Psalm 30:5 "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning"

Catherine Watts Coleman or “Katy” was born in Statesville, North Carolina to Noah Watts Sr. and Mabel Byers Watts on September 5, 1923. She graduated from Morningside High School in Statesville, and then relocated to Brooklyn, New York with her parents and two siblings, Noah Jr. or “Jimmy” and Eleanor or “Doby”, her older sister whom she loved dearly. While living in Brooklyn, Catherine enrolled and graduated from the Central School for Practical Nursing which was her dream come true. During her nursing career, she was blessed to work for Harlem Eye and Ear Hospital, Lutheran Hospital and ultimately retiring from Sheepshead Bay Nursing Home.
She married the late Bryant Coleman Jr. in 1950. They were then blessed with two wonderful sons, Wayne and Lance. They were further blessed with six beautiful grandchildren – Zuri, Maurice, Larissa, Lauren, Lance Jr. and Latrice. Later granddaughter Lauren would marry and Catherine would witness a grandson-in-law, Sheldon Johnson, added to the family followed by great grandson Sheldon Jr.
Catherine grew up in a spiritual caring home and she always put God first. Throughout her life, she remained a tithing member of her childhood church, known as The Commandment Keepers Church of the Living God Bibleway Church Headquarters in Statesville, North Carolina. She was also a faithful attendee of both The Nazarene Temple and Faith Holy Churches in Brooklyn, NY. Catherine remained diligent with her scripture and her daily meditations were the 23rd, 121st Psalm and the 14th Chapter of
St. John.
Catherine Coleman will surely be missed by her sons, daughters-in-laws, Jane and Lorraine, grandchildren, great grandchild, nephews, nieces, especially her niece Mary and Norvill “NAS” Smith who were always available to give Aunt Katy their love and support. She will also be missed by other family members, her church family, neighbors, close friends, caregivers Ahwa and Victoria, those who worked alongside her, those who she nurtured and cared for, along with those she simply smiled at with kindness and joy reminding them “don’t worry, be happy” because she truly believed that no matter what, if we just had a little bit of faith, God would take care of the rest.

Aint It Good To Be Faithful
I reckon that it’s good, so good to be faithful.
It’s plain comfortin’ to know that you got you this one
who doesn’t mind at all, not the least little bit,
of catching you when you fall, or steadyin’ you when you stumble
Or remindin’ us always that we aint nothin’ but human
so we’d best to be humble.
And then, then when them times come down oh so hard
And them days come to call that sho’ ‘nough get too tough
I still got me somebody
Who loves me – yes, loves me
No matter what! …
