Always enjoyed being around Catherine. She was born the same year as my mother. She was always happy and smiling. We had a good time making noodles together for the Auxiliary. We’ll be praying for her family . Such a pillar of the community.

Catherine was always so sweet to me and always had a smile. Raymond had lots of stories on how she and Paul were always there to welcome him. Sending prayers for family.
