Catherine was known as a wonderful, caring, affectionate individual that everyone she came in contact with just loved. She was a member of Court Little Rose #1300 Catholic Daughters of the Americas in Ellenburg and a communicant of St. Edmund's Church. She was noted for her many favorite dishes and her sayings "honey" and "dear" which she called everyone she was in contact with.

Some special ladies that took care of Catherine were her CDA sisters, Anne Landry, Joyce Roberts and Deanna Grogan.
