Abstract: I worked with Cathy for 28 years. She was my mentor of doctoral studies and my colleague at the University of Maryland–College Park and University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). I can attest that all of her students share the same sentiment: Cathy has changed our lives for the good. As one of our students said, “I would not be where I am today without Dr. Ennis.” Cathy was, and continues to be, the greatest inspiration for us. We remember her as a demanding professor, but also as a sister and a “mother figure” who cared for her “children” all the time, even during the last week of her life.
