Cathy Mains Pickett, 63, went home to be with her Lord and Savior June 1, 2021.

A resident of the Boulder Gardens Community of Foscoe North Carolina Cathy was part owner and operator of the Greater Foscoe Mining Company. She also owned her own cleaning business. An avid gardener she was an extremely hard worker with an incredible attention to detail. Two of her favorite pastimes were spending time in her flowers and listening to the Rolling Stones. A woman of faith she never allowed her declining health to affect her love for people by doing all that she could whether you were a friend or stranger. She was born August 23, 1957, in Watauga County to the late Arlie and Rosa Mains.

In addition to her father and mother she was preceded in death by her brother, Spencer Ray Mains.

Those left to cherish her memories are husband, Kenneth Pickett; daughter, Bianca and Josh Davis; son, Matthew and Jennifer Lambert; granddaughters, Isabella Greene and Olive Davis; sisters, Ellen and Eddie Roark, Pam and Greg Issacs, Sharon and Chad Corum, Karen, and Randy McClure; along with numerous nephews, nieces, and special friend, Barbara Oliver.
