She knew what was important: faith, family and friends. Christmas was definitely Catherine holiday: she always put the time in to picking out the perfect gifts. She made people feel special, especially her gandkids: never was a birthday missed. But being one of eight siblings, family was always her top priority. She was a 1955 graduate of Burlington High School; Catherine held her classmates close never missing a single reunion. If her T.V. was on she’d probably be tapping her feet to the sounds of Lawrence Welk or catching up with her friends from General Hospital. She loved St. Joseph’s Church and was always active in the Altar and Rosary Society.
The majorette at Burlington High would meet a handsome ball player. Catherine and the late Robert were blessed with four children: Robert (Harla), Joann (Steve) Erickson, Jean Pfeiffer and Ron (Eileen); and 6 grandchildren: Kelly, Lauren, Jennifer, Jacqueline, Kimberly and Patrick. She is survived by her sister, Joann Pettit and many dear nieces and nephews.
