Catherine, commonly known as Kate to many, had the gift of gab. She could engage anyone in a conversation with her fantastic smile and outgoing personality right from 1st meeting. She was very proud of her Irish heritage and strong Catholic beliefs. Although Catherine lived through many tragedies in her life, she managed to keep smiling and light up a room full of people. With God by her side, Catherine will forever be remembered and truly missed by her family, friends and for those who had the pleasure of meeting her.
She is now in the loving arms of God and the Family she was predeceased by. God Bless and Rest in Peace our Dear Catherine.
