Catherine Lynn Hoyt, a loving, hard headed, tell-it-like-it-is wife, mother and friend, passed away Dec. 27th at Gulfport Memorial after a lengthy fight with kidney disease. She was born April 27th, 1983 in Tucson, AZ, the third of seven children to David Leon and Susan (Yarborough) Winkles. Though she has lived in several places while her father served in the USAF, momma grew up in Bay St. Louis for the most part. Momma spent her years being a hard headed, stubborn, goofy, amazing, mother and best friend. She spent her last days fussing, as most mommas do. Momma is lovingly remembered as an unfiltered, big hearted,9 lives Cadillac cat. She always told you how she felt and there was no changing her mind once it was made up. Living life with momma there was never a dull moment. Momma had a heart of gold that she wore on her sleeve. To know her was to love her. She was my best friend. She definitely departs this life too soon, but no doubt fondly remembered and sadly missed by all whose life she touched. She was preceded by her paternal grandmother, Betty Furr, her maternal grandfather, Robert Yarborough, her sister Jessica Necaise, and her brother-in-law, Jordan Michael. Left to cherish her memories are: her best friend and ex-husband Brandon; Daughter: Sabrina Hoyt, her parents, David and Susan Winkles of Bay St. Louis; Five siblings: Danny and Christopher Winkles, all of Bay St. Louis, Summer(Nathan) Wills of Gulfport, Brittany(Wade) Ashby of Kiln and David (Ashley) Winkles, Jr. of Pass Christian; her paternal grandfather, Danny Winkles, of Port St. Lucia, FL and maternal grandmother Susan Conner of Bay St. Louis. Mother and father in-law, Sandra and Teddy Hoyt of Independence, La. Brother in-law, Christopher Hoyt of Independence, La. Momma leaves behind a legacy of future grandchildren and great-grands and numerous extended family, friends, neighbors and God only knows how many people she spoke to. I Love you forever my angel.
