Mrs. Gamberi was born Sept. 20, 1960, in Natchez, the daughter of John Hiram Clanton and Margaret Alyene Price Clanton. She was a member of Morgantown Baptist Church. She was owner of Cathy’s Cowboy Corral. Cathy cherished life to the fullest, never turning away anyone in need. She was always there with an open heart.
