Travel was something she really loved and she would plan a family vacation every year, starting when the youngest was a year old. Travel was always by car, she was the navigator and her husband would drive but there is so much more you can see of the country that way. They eventually traveled to all 48 of the contiguous states.
Catherine and her husband Daniel were married 62 years, from 1954 until his passing in 2016.
