KILL DEVIL HILLS — Catherine Inez “Cat” Glass was born July 19, 1965, in Baltimore, Maryland. She died peacefully in her sleep at home in Kill Devil Hills, NC January 15, 2022.
As a young girl, growing up in Baltimore, Maryland, Cat had aspirations to be a veterinarian. That evolved from her extreme love of all animals big and small. Cat appreciated everyone that helped an animal live.
Cat made many influential and lasting friendships in Baltimore. She worked at the iconic Hammerjacks restaurant which gave her “up close” exposure to great music. About that time, she met Harvey J. Glass, who helped broaden her musical awareness and eventually became her husband. They moved to the Outer Banks together in the mid-90s and made it their home until Harvey’s passing in 2002.
Cat eventually developed into an Outer Banks landmark of her own making. She had a knack for bartending and soon became a successful master bartender at popular venues all over the Beach. Cat’s generosity and her unique luminescence made it easy for so many to love her. Cat’s friends became her family. She always gave more concern to her friends’ feelings over her own. She was eloquent and let anyone she contacted know what they had to say was important.
She is survived by all her friends and her companion and fiancé, Bill Martin of the Kill Devil Hills home. Cat’s wish is that everyone remembers their best times with her. In lieu of flowers, Cat requested that memorial donations go to the Dare County SPCA or to any local animal shelter. Memories and condolences may be shared at www.gallopfuenralservices.com.
