Mary Catherine (Cathy Stacy) McClure, Hillsboro, was born December 19, 1949 to Max and Geneva (Stovall) Stacy. On December 31, 1970 she was blessed by not only becoming a wife to Jay McClure, but also by becoming a mother to Ricky Jay. In 1973, they completed their family when Karen Denise was born. Cathy worked at various places including S/V Tools in Newton, Barkman Honey and Hillsboro industries in Hillsboro. Cathy and Jay raised emus at their home in Aulne. 

In 1985 Cathy and Jay remolded and opened the Dari-Ette in Hillsboro. Then the Dari Place in Marion. Through those doors they touched the lives of many high school students getting their first jobs.

She really enjoyed the family chat set up on Messenger where everyone kept in touch almost daily.
