Catherine is survived by her son Brian, daughters Nancy, Debbie, and Philomena, grandchildren Sean, Samantha, Elizabeth, Brian Joseph and Mara, and her great-grandson, Wesley. She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by the only man she ever loved, her husband Brian, and her siblings Nora Broe, Rita Kaminski, Eddie Sweeney and Paddy Sweeney.
