She also had a very special bond with her Great nieces & nephews.
In keeping with Catherine’s wishes, there are no calling hours scheduled. She also requested that those in attendance wear cheerful, colorful clothing, as she had always believed that this is not a sad day, but a celebration of her return home to God.
