On June 1, 1979, Gerry and Catherine moved to Odessa, Texas. She worked as an insurance agent for Reliable Life Insurance from October 5, 1987 until her retirement August 1, 2004.

Catherine grew up knowing the importance of passions.  She was passionate about many things.  One of her biggest passions was family and friends.  She always had the room in her heart to love all.  She believed that no one should be alone especially at holidays.  When the holidays rolled around the family usually grew as friends were welcomed to celebrate.  Some of her other passions included going to the casinos, going cruising and just traveling in general.  She was always ready to go on an adventure yet waited until the last minute to pack.  Catherine had many hidden talents.  One of her talents was that she was an exceptional artist.  She loved to get lost in the process of creating new pieces with any chance she got.

Catherine is preceded in death by her parents, David and Delores Dixon; brother, Wendell Dixon; daughter, Shonna Davis; granddaughter, Shara Pierson and grandson Raymond Norris.

Catherine is survived by husband Gerry King of Brownwood, Texas, son Randy (Sonja) Pierson of Denison, Texas. Daughter Tammy (Jerry) Crain of San Antonio, Texas. Son Scott (Cissy) Pierson of Odessa, Texas. Son Brent (Carol) of Bangs, Texas. Sisters Joyce (Ted) Boyd of Lubbock, Texas and Loretta Carlegis of Bedford, Texas.
