She spent her time raising their family and being a full time homemaker. Catherine was a member of the Ladies Auxillary Branch #35, and always enjoyed a game of cards. Catherine was a gentle, kind lady who never had a bad word to say about anyone, always making time to sit and chat with the many people who would drop by.
