Cathy Lee Dentler

EAST BERLIN – Cathy Lee (Hoover) Dentler, 64, entered into rest at 4:26 p.m. on Saturday, July 25, 2020 at Wellspan York Hospital.  She was the loving wife of Pastor Larry M. Dentler.  The couple celebrated 38 years of marriage on June 12, 2020.

Born March 14, 1956 in Martinsburg, she was a daughter of the late Robert and Shirley (Replogle) Hoover.

Cathy worked as a registered nurse specializing in rehabilitation.  She enjoyed a time of employment with REAL COMMITMENT, a program arm of Tender Care Pregnancy Center as a youth educator.

Cathy was a lifelong member of Church of the Brethren.  She and her husband served as a pastoral couple for Bermudian Church of the Brethren in East Berlin for the last 30 years and previously for North Liberty Church of the Brethren in Indiana, as well as a number of other locations.

Before Cathy fell ill, she was very active and enjoyed gardening.  She loved reading, especially the bible and doing bible word searches.  Most of all, Cathy loved her family, adored her grandchildren and cherished the time she spent with them.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a daughter, Jessie Carroll of East Berlin; son, John Dentler and wife, Erica of York; five grandchildren, Mason and Amber Dellinger, Jericho Carroll, Natalie Dentler and Jaxsen Dentler; two sisters, Sharon Stepp of East Berlin and Nancy Seroski of Mechanicsburg; and her entire church family who was very dear to her heart.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Karen Miller.

Cathy always cared about the well-being of others. Therefore, due to the current Covid-19 pandemic and for everyone’s health and safety, the service to celebrate Cathy’s life will be private.  However, the service will be recorded and posted to Bermudian Church of the Brethren’s website,  Burial will take place in Bermudian Church Cemetery.  Officiating will be Pastor Georgia Markey, Associate Pastor of Visitation and Cathy’s husband, Pastor Larry Dentler.
