My dear Aunt Catherine will never be forgotten. She was the "spark plug" of the family, always made you feel good even if you didn't. Will never forget her good cooking and baking that she most generously shared with us quite often. Her sense of humor was priceless, and whenever she, my mother and Catherine Dominic got together, the comedy was unbeatable.

My sincere condolences to the family, and may she rest in peace.

John
