I am saddened to hear about Catherine's passing, but know that she was with her many loved ones during her journey. I worked with Catherine at St. Vincent Hospital for many years. What a grand lady, great nurse, loving mother, fantastic friend. She gave her all with every task and lived her life caring for others. She will be missed by many! May your fondest memories bring you the strength to cope with this loss.

I remember your mom as always smiling and welcoming. She made visiting your house a real nice and comfortable place to be. In later years, she was the same when I would see her at Pat Flynn's. Always remembered me and was happy to see me, as I always was to see her. What a kind, hard working, sensible, fun and funny mom you had. I am sorry I could not make it to her service to tell you this in person.

My fondest memories of Mrs. Hurrle are of the days on College Avenue. How difficult it must have been to be a widow with 6 children, but Mrs. Hurrle was always strong & positive. She worked and raised her children without missing a beat, as proven by the wonderful adults they are today.
I love you all & am sorry I will not be able to attend the services. May your mother have a ball in her spot in Heaven!!

Mrs. Hurrle rescued me in my time of need, and I will never forget her kindness and generosity. She always had a funny quip at the ready with her twinkling eyes to make you laugh or to lighten the mood. She will be greatly missed, and I'm a better person for having known her.

So sorry for your loss! Your Mom was an amazing person. I have fond memories of her friendship with my aunt Mary McGinley and my Mom Peggy Trier. When I worked at St. Vincent she was a nurse in employee health and when I had to visit there she always made me laugh. She will be missed.
