Born in Bayonne, Cathleen was a proud alumnus of Holy Family Academy, Bayonne and a graduate of New York University (NYU). Cathleen was a retail executive with several of the large department stores along Fifth Avenue in New York City and across the country until her retirement. She traveled extensively throughout the United States, Europe and the Far East.
Cathleen was a parishioner of St. Catharine’s Church, Spring Lake, NJ where she volunteered in many ministries within the parish. She was a proud member of the Spring Lake Golf Club and enjoyed many years of competitive golf with Ruth Taigia as her golf partner. While Cathleen loved golf, she found enjoyment in watching all sports.
Cathleen was the driving force and inspiration for the Preservation Alliance of Spring Lake as well as the current President. She and her late sister Roseanne spearheaded the drive to preserve and renovate the Duggan Memorial Building the original volunteer First Aid Building, while also working closely with the Borough. Cathleen especially loved working with all her dear friends from the Preservation Alliance.
One of Cathleen’s favorite events was orchestrating an annual family reunion at her home in Spring Lake. Nothing made her happier than to see all her family, young and old together in the backyard with her cousin, Fr. Paul McCarthy celebrating Mass.
