In Memoriam

Cathrin Nevin

February 7, 1978 - August 6, 2017

It is with tremendous sadness we must report that the SCA has lost one of our dearest and most valued members. Cathrin Nevin (39), a beautiful spirit that brought life to every room into which she stepped, was killed suddenly early Sunday morning, August 6, 2017 in a tragic motorcycle accident. As passenger on the bike with her friend, Bobby Potts, both perished at the scene shortly after 2:00 a.m.

A Property Claims Adjuster for VeriClaim, Inc., Cathrin considered herself a career claims person, expressing recently her dream/goal of one day becoming a General Large Loss Adjuster. She saw her job as a means to help others in need, and sought to better the world around her at every turn.

She gave of herself selflessly, including years of extended service on the Sacramento Claims Association Board of Directors, three of which she served as Secretary. She dedicated a good deal of energy in an ongoing role as the "Giving Committee" Chair, bringing worthy charitable organizations to the attention of the SCA, and overseeing those relationships.

First and foremost, Cathrin was the loving mother of two daughters. She is survived by Cara (22) and Haylee (17). Funeral arrangements are in the works. A GoFundMe drive, set up by Jeff Cassetta, friend and husband of Cat's BFF, Danell Cassetta, on behalf of her daughters, reached it's target almost immediately. Her girls are, no doubt, in need of emotional support at this time, as well. We will update on the status of any additional financial support, especially for funeral expenses, that might be needed.

Cathrin recently opened a new and exciting chapter in her life. Newly single after the end of a long-term relationship, she was clearly finding herself in a whole new way. Excited about her new home in Olivehurst, and all her endeavors, she had recently discovered her artistic talent as a painter. The outpouring of the initial shock at the tragic news, and heartfelt love for this beloved woman has lit up social media. Cathrin was well known and deeply loved and appreciated by a broad spectrum of people in her life. Her memory will live on through all our days.
