Catherine A. “Cass” Boring, 72, of Gettysburg, passed away after a courageous 13-year battle with cancer on Friday, April 23, 2021, at her home. She was the loving wife of George W. Boring; they were together for 55 years and would have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in September.

Born Thursday, Jan. 27, 1949, in Gettysburg, she was a daughter of the late John E. and Mary A. (Klunk) Schrade.

Cass attended and graduated from St. Joseph Academy in McSherrystown. In her younger years she modeled in fashion shows for various local stores.

Cass worked for the State Treasury in Harrisburg for 32 years and enjoyed going to the beach with her husband and also going to the casino.

The family would like to send a heart felt thank you to the WellSpan Adams Cancer Center nurses and doctors for compassionate care over the past 13 years. Throughout her struggle, Cass never lost her faith, smile or sense of humor; always remaining upbeat and positive.
