My last two visits with Cathy were with her in the hospital. Although she was obviously in pain, she continued to maintain what I could only call a fortitude in her faith which I found to be a beautiful example of what the Saints remind us of as we come to the end of our lives: steadfastness in faith, in Hope, and in charity.

Dear Cathy,
you will be missed! The world is different because you cared -- about your family, friends, patients, colleagues, profession and the world.

Aunt Cathy will be missed by the Morgan girls. She was a classy, humorous and optimistic woman who put her family’s needs above her own. We pray that she is dancing and laughing in heaven in the arms of Craig! Her presence left an indelible mark on everyone she met. Her wittiness always left us cackling! Her stories were endless and so much fun to listen to. Although you have left us in body - you will always be with us in spirit. Prayers and condolences to all of her children and grandchildren. Prayers to her husband. Rest in peace Aunt Cathy! ❤️🙏

Cathy Malarzo was a beautiful lady who always had a twinkle in her eye. She was a loving wife and mother, talented and caring registered nurse and true friend. She was a devout Catholic who loved her God and trusted Him in her trials and tribulations. Tom will miss her but we will support him in the choir and Knights of Columbus. God bless the Malarzo famiy. John and Marilyn Roppolo
