Catherine of Camelot has gone home to assist God in organizing and executing His affairs in heaven. She’ll undoubtedly play a big role as she’s been preparing for this new assignment for almost 75 years by serving and bringing joy to others.

Cath, Catherine, Cathy, Aunt Cathy, “The Camel Lady,” — by whatever name she was known, it was all about love. Everyone was family, so a very extensive extended family mourns her loss but rejoices in her new adventure. She has more to give and a whole new venue in which to “practice random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.”

Born Aug. 25, 1939, in Taft, Calif., to Gordon Nash Arlett and Marion Moore Arlett, Catherine grew up with two sisters and a brother in Taft, Auburn and Roseville. She graduated from Roseville High School with the class of 1957 and Sacramento State in 1961. She retired after 40 years working in various departments for the State of California. Her vast circle of love includes dear friends she made growing up in Roseville and working for the State of California, fellow breast cancer survivors in the Hooters support group, her Relay for Life co-workers, and her second families in Southern California and Tanglewood Drive.

Catherine was a giver — of her means, of her time, of herself. Many shared the bounty of her trips to Costco and the peach farm. Youth were tutored, families were fed, gifts went to the troops overseas and IT support was open 24/7. She supported many charities and was chairman of the 2013 Placerville ACS Relay for Life. She loved her animal companions, large and small. In later years her menagerie was reduced to three camels and Annie-the-dog. She left too soon; her greatest wish was to live one day longer than her last camel.

Catherine is survived by her brother, Don Arlett (Pam); sisters, Diane Boisa (Jerry) and Janis Vogel; a multitude of nieces and nephews (including grand and great-nieces and -nephews); and extended family too numerous to mention.

No formal services will be held but a celebration of life will take place on Saturday, Sept. 14, at Camelot from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life or a favorite charity.
