A Trip Down Memory Lane

Arlene Lower



When other residents talk about trips and family, Andy always talks about CATA Company. As well as being her family, they worked and shared their lives together and took picnics together. Her wish was to see her friends from CATA company again. On June 28th, 2013, her dream came true!




For 25 years, Andy worked for CATA Bus Terminal. When the company started it was a very small terminal. Andy took all the calls, including 911 calls, as well as all the dispatch orders for the drivers. Andy retired from her job at CATA Company in 2000. Three of the people that we met were in college when Andy worked there. She trained them and now they are the executive bosses and office coordinators.Many of the men that came out to give big hugs remember her as a stern, but fun boss. She was thrilled that so many came to see her and gave her hugs and kisses. They still have Andy’s picture up when from when she played Mrs. Santa at Christmas.
