What a GREAT Lady! I spent many days with her and Mr. Quinlan as a child and have very fond memories of them. She and my mother were friends for many years. She will be missed.

Aunt Katherine as she was known to me was a wonderful person. Sister to my mom Jane or baby Jane as she was called. We visited Atlantic City as far back as my memory allows. Early '60s to grandmom's store. All of my memory's, all of them where amazing and fun. Dinners at her house and the food, wow! We love Aunt Katherine and even though we cannot travel at this time to show our respect, we are their in spirit and prayer! I've attached a photo of my last visit with her. We had a great time as always talking about "everything". God bless you Aunt Katherine!!!!

Mrs. Quinlan was a great friend to the Raye family for many years. She worked with my mother, Billie Raye, on countless PTA projects to benefit young people in Brigantine. She was an extremely hard worker who really cared about making Brigantine a better place to live. My sisters, Tammi and Lysa, join me in offering our condolences to your family.

I was saddened to read today of Catherine's passing. I have so many fond memories from when I was principal of the Brigantine North Middle School. Catherine helped out in so many ways - luncheons, concerts, fund raising activities and especially the 6th grade Stokes trip fundraiser. She was so willing to help and always with a beautiful smile! She was a great lady who will be missed!!

I will miss you Catherine. You and Joe were such great friends to my parents starting in 1956 until their passing. They loved partaking of your Greek heritage. You, Joe and your children are part of the memories of my growing up in Brigantine. You were such a treasure to Brigantine. You will be missed
