Catalina wed her soulmate Rosario Arevalo and they were married for almost fifty years.
Catalina was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to many. She was also dedicated, selfless, and the ultimate caregiver. Catalina was a nurturer to all always the first in making sure that everyone was taken care of. She was adored immensely by her grandchildren and she loved taking them on mini trips to the store to spoil them with a treat. Catalina was passionate about cooking and enjoyed spending time in the kitchen. She was adamant about cooking something different for each of her grandchildren whenever they were at her house. Catalina’s favorite hobby of all was her family and being able to spend time with them all. She will be deeply missed and fondly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
Catalina gave her life to the Lord. She and Rosario were dedicated to their faith and served the Lord in their church, Iglesia Cristiana Viva Eterna.
Catalina was preceded in death by her parents.
