Broadcasters mourn loss of Cathy Forsythe

Cathy Forsythe, general manager of KACC Alvin, passed away on Oct. 12 - several days after suffering from a massive stroke.  She was 51.

Forsythe served as the director of the Broadcast Communications Department at ACC for almost 30 years. Her former students now work at nearly every radio and television station in southeast Texas.

Her broadcast career includes stints at numerous stations, such as Houston's KTRH 740 AM, KILT 100 FM, KRBE 104 FM, as well as voice talent for video, commercial and other productions.

Forsythe's memorial service is set for Saturday, Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. at the League City United Methodist Church.

In lieu of flowers, her family requests that donations be made to the Catherine M. Forsythe scholarship fund. Please call (281) 756-3600 for information on donating.

Forsythe was first diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer after a routine life insurance exam in 2002. After two surgeries and aggressive chemotherapy, she was declared to be in remission.

Six months later, nine more tumors were discovered in her liver and lungs. Having been told by doctors that there was nothing more they could do and the average patient with the same kind of cancer typically had a life expectancy of about 14 months, she continued to look for other alternatives instead of giving in to the prognosis.
