She was a long-time member of Dover’s St. Joseph Church and gave of her time for over 50 years as a volunteer at Union Hospital in Dover. Catherine loved to sew, quilt and crochet; she was part of the Bears and Blankets Mission of the Winfield Church – something she very much enjoyed doing.

She will be dearly missed by her husband, John; her brothers, Robert Moledor of Randolph and David (Joan) Moledor of Rootstown; her nieces and nephews – who were very special to both  Catherine and John, Mark Howard, Lisa, Brian, Jill and John Moledor, Jim, Mike, Dan, Joe and John Fondriest, Carol Gillis, Jane Sloan, Anne Gentry, Mary Beth Rooney, Chris Besee, Rose Shutt, George Liegl, Sue Edwards, Kathy Dalpiaz, Teresa Coon and Franz Bryner; and her many great-nieces and great-nephews.
