Catherine was born in Malden, Massachusetts on June 7, 1928, to the late Giovanni and Maria (Moscaritolo) Imbriano.
Catherine was a devoted wife and a nurturing stay-at-home mother. She remained at home to raise her six children and care for her husband and their home. When her children were grown, Catherine volunteered as a Pink Lady at the Fisher-Titus Hospital in Norwalk, OH.
Catherine loved to cook and her family and friends were always welcomed at her table. Family was everything to Catherine. She was a caring, devoted, and loving wife and mother, and an adoring Nana and great Nana. She thoroughly enjoyed her grandchildren and was so excited to meet her first great grandson last fall. Nana would never miss an opportunity to babysit her adoring grandchildren. She enjoyed parties and was a social butterfly.
While residing at The Carriage House in Norwalk, the past seven and half years, she loved doing puzzles, gardening, feeding the birds, playing corn hole, dart ball and ran Saturday afternoon Jackpot with her neighbors. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Stein Hospice and Home Instead for providing wonderful support and care. They would also like to express their deepest thanks and gratitude to the staff at The Carriage House Assisted Living for going above and beyond in their care, support and hospitality.
