CATHERINE H. (nee Maximiuk), passed away on Saturday July 12, 2014 at the age of 81. Catherine is survived by her loving sons, Michael S. (Patricia) and Nicholas P. (Cynthia) Procyk, her two adoring grandchildren, Lauren and David Procyk, and her cherished great granddaughter, Janis.
Catherine was truly a devoted and caring woman not only to her family but also to all those she cared for as a long time registered nurse at The Children's Hospital of Philadel-phia and Pennsylvania Hospital. Her compassion and care for others led Catherine to become a Philadelphia Police Officer in the 1950's while on sabbatical from nursing. Catherine excelled in the Academy and graduated first in her class. Catherine proudly served as a Police Officer for a few years until her true passion of nursing called her back to the medical profession.
Services for Catherine will be private and are being handled by JOHN F. GIVNISH LIFE CELEBRATION HOME OF ACADEMY RD.
