Comments & ID Thoughts

I considered a barn spider first, catfaced spider, orbweaver, or brown recluse. My wife had it on her arm when she came in the house from the garage

A brown recluse can be safely ruled out, but I think you’ve got the right genus, which is Araneus: this must be an Angulate-shouldered Orb-weaver of some kind. Chances are this a Cat Faced Spider, as you suggested.
