Catalina Leigh Marie McManus, 5, of Alpena died Sunday, January 27, 2019 at MidMichigan Medical Center.

Catalina was a beautiful girl with a big heart. Unfortunately, it was her heart that failed her. Catalina loved being at the beach whether it was swimming or playing in the sand. She enjoyed her My Little Ponies, riding her bike, playing at the park, painting nails, and was known to be sassy every now and then. Catalina brought great joy to not only her parents and loved ones but everyone that crossed her path. Her time here was all too short, but every minute was certainly a blessing.

Catalina is survived by her parents Hope McManus and Ervin Ritthaler, her half brother Ervin III, and her grandfather Bob McManus. She is preceded in death by her brother Mayson. Family will receive friends on Thursday, Jan. 31, 2019 from 4 -8 PM at McWilliams Funeral Home. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019 in Belvidere, IL. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the family to help assist with final expenses. On-line condolences can be registered at www.mcwilliamsfh.com
