Catherine P Haney

April 7, 1952 — February 1, 2022

Catherine (Cathy) Perez Haney of Tula, OK passed away quietly with family by her side on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, at the age of 69.

Cathy was born on April 7, 1952, in New Orleans, LA to parents, Raymond M. Perez and R. LaVerne Perez. Cathy graduated from Andrew Jackson High School, Chalmette, LA in 1970.

After college Cathy and her husband left New Orleans and moved to Lafayette, LA. While in Lafayette, Cathy's son Joe and daughter Rebecca were born. Shortly after Rebecca's birth, Cathy's family moved overseas because of her husband's career in the oil and gas industry. They traveled to and lived in many countries around the world, including Scotland, Norway, and Trinidad. In fact, Cathy's third child, David, was born in Scotland.

Cathy and her family moved back to the United States and settled in Tulsa, OK in 1984 where her children attended Tulsa schools.

In Tulsa Cathy met her second husband, Jerome Vance Haney (JV). Cathy and JV were married in 1990 and celebrated their 31-year anniversary in 2021.

During her time in Tulsa, Cathy became certified as an Aerobics instructor and taught classes at St. Francis Hospital. Cathy entered the insurance industry in 1990, working for State Farm Insurance and AAA Insurance for a total of 26 years.

JV taught in the Tulsa public school system for over 30 years where he was also a successful basketball coach. He later became a TV and radio color-commentator for the University of Tulsa (TU) and Oral Roberts University (ORU) football and basketball programs.

Cathy was an avid sports fan. She attended many of her children's sports activities as well as JV's TU and ORU games. Cathy even watched this year's NFL football playoff while a patient at St. Francis Hospital. Cathy also loved watching movies, especially with her kids and family. Some of her favorite movies were classics like "Dr. Zhivago", "Brian's Song", and "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", and action movies like "Bullet", "The Fugitive" and "Die Hard". Cathy's favorite movie was "While You Were Sleeping.
Cathy loved DOGS. She always had at least one dog in the house, and sometimes she had two or three dogs at a time. During her life she owned a Cairn Terrier, a Westie, a Beagle, a Pit Bull, an English Bull Dog, a Labrador Retriever, a Pekingese, a Yorkie, a Sheltie, a Pug, a Shih Tzu, a Lhasa Apso, and a Schnauzer.

Cathy also loved taking photographs or having professional photos made of her children, grandchildren, and other family members. It was equally as important to her that she share the pictures with everyone in the family. What Cathy was best known for was never forgetting a birthday, anniversary, or holiday like Valentine's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas. In fact, while in St. Francis Hospital she was worried about getting her Valentine cards bought and addressed in time to be mailed out.
Cathy was a wonderful mother and grandmother. She loved her children and grandchildren more than anything. She was extremely proud of her children for the adults and parents they had become.

Cathy is survived by her husband, JV Haney of Tulsa, OK, son Joe Johnson and his wife Katie and their daughter Emma of DeRidder, LA, daughter Rebecca Fabich and her husband Brandon and their sons Aiden and Stefan of Belgrade, MT, and son David Johnson and his wife Michelle of Houston, TX, siblings Bonnie Mayo of Maryville, TN, Patrick Perez and wife Mary Ann of Covington, LA, Anita Levine and husband Jeff of Blountville, TN, and Maria Curry and husband Mike of Magnolia, TX, 15 nieces and nephews, and numerous other family members and friends.
