Catherine loved going to Wells Beach, Maine every summer where she would walk the beach with family and friends and enjoy delicious seafood. She loved smelling the lilacs from the bushes in her front yard that she transplanted from her parent’s house. She enjoyed spending time with her best friend Thea and her godchildren. She loved whenever all of her family would have get-togethers. The last couple of years she started gardening with her son Tyrus and daughter, Michele, where they would plant tons of flowers and organic vegetables. She loved snuggling with her dogs Shirley and Chigi, and cats, Pipsqueek and Cezar.

She recently started going back to church at St. Thomas Aquinas in Derry. Catherine would never let you leave her house until she got a hug. Some of the many things people loved about Catherine includes her being silly and laughing, her selfless acts to make other people happy, the comfort and support she provided people, and her constant reminder of the love she had for people.
