Catherine Ann (Morris) Dorsett was born on June 26, 1937 in Odessa, Texas. She was the only daughter of Clyde and Gracie D. (McLain) Morris. When she was young, her family moved to Winnsboro where Catherine attended all grades graduating from Winnsboro High School as valedictorian. She attended East Texas State Teachers College for a semester. She married Donald J. Dorsett June 1, 1957 in Winnsboro. Catherine worked as a secretary in the Agriculture Economics Department while her husband finished his degree at Texas A&M. She then spent four years as an Air Force wife in Chandler, Minnesota and Rome, New York among many other places. After the Air Force her family lived in Cleburne for two years then moved to Richardson when her husband worked for the Texas Research Foundation. After 15 years, the family moved to Bryan where Don worked for the Texas Agriculture Extension Service and Catherine spent several years assisting with student registration at A&M. Catherine loved all children and worked in her church nurseries and was a member of Mended Hearts and George Tucker, Patriot Descendants Association. She was the surrogate mom to Matt's buddies in Company D-2 class of '92 and made each one feel like part of her family. From an Aggie family, she was a life-long passionate Aggie football fan and we know she had something to do with A&M's defeat of #1 Alabama. Gig 'Em!
