I'll always remember her for her kindness and laughter. I'll remember Hamilton and how much fun we had there! Loved Aunt Cathy!

So sorry for the loss of "Aunty" Cathy. She was an amazing woman with a heart of Gold! I will always remember Thanksgivings at her house in Middletown up that steep hill and in Meriden. Even though she usually worked on that day, she always made it special when she came home. My thoughts and prayers are with Catherine & family, Edna & family, June & family and Thomas & family. May she R.I.P. with "Uncle" Eddie
