Obituary for Cathrene "Cathy" Anne Behrens

Cathrene Anne “Cathy” Behrens of Wolverine Lake was born November 16, 1964 in Detroit, Michigan to Kenneth and Kay (nee: Young) Behrens. She passed away suddenly at home on February 14, 2021. She was 56.

Cathy served the public for more than 25 years in various positions in multiple cities in the area. She started out as a part time dispatcher in Wolverine Lake and moved onto Walled Lake to become a full time dispatcher, and then Assistant to the Chief. She then continued up the ladder to become the City Treasurer, moving her knowledge and expertise to the Village of Holly and then Grosse Pointe Woods. Cathy was excited to be finishing her career where it all began in the Village of Wolverine Lake as their newly appointed City Treasurer. Her start date was February 16, 2021.

Many people know Cathy from her family’s restaurant, Woody’s on the Trail. Cathy spent many years working there as the “Chief Cook and Bottle Washer”. Cathy’s shining personality left a mark on those she served throughout her life, whether it be at the restaurant or one of the cities where she worked.

Cathy leaves behind her loving parents, Kenneth & Kay Behrens, Walled Lake, her sister Caryn Robinson, Commerce Twp., her brother, Kenneth “Kenny” Behrens, Commerce Twp., and her fun loving niece, Hailey Behrens as well as many other loving family members and friends. She also leaves behind her beloved four legged friend, Willow, who still sits on the couch at Ken & Kay’s house waiting for her to come home.

Due to occupancy limitations in place due to the Covid-19 Virus, funeral services will be held in person for the immediate family only on Friday at 1 PM. The funeral service will be streamed live for those who wish to attend remotely. Interment will take place at Commerce Memorial Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can made in memory of Cathy to the Commerce Township Firefighter’s Association, 2401 Glengary Commerce Twp., MI 48382 in support of other fellow servants who always go above and beyond the call of duty.
