Memories Timeline


  1. Hello all,

    If you are reading this it is because you have been a part of Catherine's life.

    As you know, Catherine has always been family oriented. To that end she suggested to us that in lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Matthews Giving Tree in her memory.

    Thank you,

    Eleanor & Jack

  2. Very saddened to hear about the sudden passing of dear Catherine. I've know her through my mother, who taught with her at from P.S. 11 and I am glad that I stayed in touch with her throughout the years. No trip back to NYC was complete without a visit with Catherine. We spoke several times a year and email made it easy for us to be connected. She was a very caring lady and I will miss her. I know she spoke so highly of her sister Eleanor and brother-in-law Jack who were so helpful in her time of need.

  3. My deepest condolences to the family. Cathy was a dedicated and skilled teacher and a loyal friend. Her family was the center of her life. May she Rest In Peace. Nilda Soto Ruiz

  4. Dear Eleanor,
    I was very sad to learn about Cathy.
    She loved you and her family more than anything. We had some fun memories apple picking and sitting up until the wee hours talking and traveling to California together.
    I will remember her always.
    With deepest sympathy.

  5. So sorry to learn of Catherine's passing. Met Catherine at Saturday Mass held next door in our building and grew to love her. She was so caring and will be missed. My husband passed last month and I am sure they are both smiling down on us all.

  6. Eleanor, Jack and extended family,

    My deepest sympathy on the death of Catherine. I find it hard to believe that such a vibrant, lively lady went from yu so quickly. But Thank God she dies pain free and that she did'nt linger too long in pain and discomfort. She was such a bright, interesting lady and great for long chats about her travels etc. May she rest in peace and may the good Lord comfort and console you in you great loss.

  7. Dear Elinor and Steven,

    Wendell and I were saddened to learn of our beloved friend, Cathy’s death. For us, her outstanding quality among many, was honesty. Once she gave you her friendship, she never took it back. We became friends at P.S. 11 in the Bronx, close to Sacred Heart Church in the late ‘60’s.

    Our faith teaches us that those that die in Christ shall meet again in heaven. Appropriate for yourselves your pleasant memories of her love for each of you.

    In sorrow,
    Wendell and Helen Foster

  8. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to family and friends. May all your good memories outweigh your sadness during this difficult time. (Isaiah 25:8)
