Catherine was taken by the Lord on Tuesday October 8 as she joined her beloved husband Robert in Heaven. Our mom, grandma, and great grandma loved her family as we all loved her.
Born September 16, 1928 in Altoona, PA she married Robert February 14, 1953. She has five living children; Robert, Edward, Rosemary, Jeannette, and Leo and a daughter Gloriajean who died at birth. She has sixteen grandchildren, thirteen great grandchildren, three children-in-law and ten grandchildren-in-law all of whom she is very proud.
Although her own mom died at a young age, mom took to the life of a wife and mother with a passion to succeed. She was to nurture, teach, lead, and cheer lead our family to our current successes. She found time to work outside the family home as a hospital volunteer, help at our school cafeteria and other work that she enjoyed. She was proud to be a Marine wife and was involved in many veteran and military activities when they lived in NC.
The time we spent as a family were a joy to her and were the best times because mom and dad made family the priority. That is the legacy she passes on to all of us.
The funeral will be Tuesday from Lawrence A. Gabriel Funeral Home and Cremation Services Inc., 74 N. Main St., Carbondale with a Funeral Mass at 9:30 am in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 15 Fallbrook St., Carbondale.
A viewing will be held on Monday October 14, from 4 pm until 7 pm..
