June Mom of the Month

Congratulations to Catherine Wackley!  Catherine is our June mom of the month winner! Catherine has won a FREE haircut, color, highlights and styling lesson from The  Ken Paves Salon!  Her prize will also include a glamorous gift basket including a profesional hairdryer and styling products! The Ken Paves Salon is located at 43210 Hayes Rd in  Clinton Twp.

Catherine’s name was submitted by her daughter, Emily. Below,  Emily has explained what a wonderful person her mom is and why she deserves to be our mom of the month! 


My mom is a single mother of two. She works full-time for Federal Express delivering packages, which is becoming physically grueling as she becomes older. She also cares full-time for my mentally challenged 30 year-old brother. My brother requires 24 hour supervision. She is able to receive assistance from the state, but due to my brother’s behavioral issues, she is rarely able to use these services to take a break.

As a single mom, she struggles financially to make ends meet each month, leaving very little “extra” for herself. She is always buying gifts, baking or making food for others who need a little pick me up or are going through a rough patch. She prioritizes herself last, always taking care of those she feels needs more than she does. Recently, my aunt, who is my mom’s best friend, was diagnosed with skin cancer that has moved into the lymph nodes. My mom once again is thinking of what she can do to help Aunt Peggy, what she can surprise her with to cheer her up and what dinners she can make for her to make it easier on their family.

My mom’s life has been challenging, but she continues to move forward, always thinking of others and she deserves a day of pampering for herself!!!! 


Thank you Emily and congratulations Catherine! You are truly an inspiration and a beautiful mom!  We hope you enjoy a day of pampering for yourself courtesy of The Ken Paves Salon! You certainly deserve it!
