the following formula works for:
column D
=IF(AND(IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C4,B:B,1,FALSE),"*")<>"*",IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C4,A:A,1,FALSE),"*")<>"*"),"Both","")
column E
=IF(AND(IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C4,B:B,1,FALSE),"*")="*",IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C4,A:A,1,FALSE),"*")<>"*"),"Barb's","")
column F
=IF(AND(IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C4,B:B,1,FALSE),"*")<>"*",IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C4,A:A,1,FALSE),"*")="*"),"Cathy's","")
but i see that you have some values stored as text and some as numbers and this might not work, also not all the values are the same length correct?

if all Cathy's are text then this will work:
Column D
=IF(AND(IFERROR(MATCH((C7&""),B:B,),"*")<>"*",IFERROR(MATCH(C7,A:A,),"*")<>"*"),"Both","")
Column E
=IF(AND(IFERROR(MATCH((C7&""),B:B,),"*")="*",IFERROR(MATCH(C7,A:A,),"*")<>"*"),"Cathy's","")
Column F
=IF(AND(IFERROR(MATCH((C7&""),B:B,),"*")<>"*",IFERROR(MATCH(C7,A:A,),"*")="*"),"Barb's","")

if not make sure that all three columns are text or all theree are numbers
