Catherine Thomas

Wadesboro - On Tuesday, January 11, 2022, Mrs. Catherine Rushing Thomas, 56, transitioned from this earthly life to join her parents and four uncles in Heaven.


Catherine Martrina Rushing Thomas was born in Wadesboro, NC on July 25, 1965 to the late Eva Horne Rushing and the late Robert “Bob” Rushing. Following high school graduation, she pursed her career in nursing where she obtained her degree to become a Certified Nursing Assistant.

She committed her life to Christ at an early age. She was devoted in church where she studied, researched and loved learning the knowledge of God. She became a member of Glorious Resurrection of Life in Lancaster, SC.

Catherine was truly a people person to the point that she never met a stranger. Everyone she held a conversation with always ended up talking about God and the many obstacles that he brought her through. She always shared a testimony for the Lord.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her husband, James Thomas; her aunt, Mary (Robert) Wall; her children, Christopher (Melissa) Rushing, Antonio (Cushena) Baker, Grgeory (Kathryn) Rushing, Matrina Rushing, Reggie (Candyce) Buchanon, Jr., Dontavius Thomas and Basil Thomas.

She also leaves her 11 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild, 6 sisters and 4 brothers and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.
