Catherine Morin peacefully passed away Monday October 5, 2020 with family at her side.

Catherine was born May 30, 1927 to the late Richard W. and Catherine L. (O’Connor) Sheehan of West Quincy, MA. She graduated from Quincy High School and in 1948 married her high school sweetheart and love of her life, the late Frederick E. Morin. They resided in South Weymouth until 1989 when they retired to East Sandwich to the home they built themselves (with a little weekend help from their children and friends) in 1972.

While living in South Weymouth, Catherine volunteered for 25 years as the School Librarian at St. Francis Xavier Elementary School. After retiring to East Sandwich she volunteered for over 20 years as Membership Chairman for her neighborhood Association, a job she thoroughly enjoyed. Catherine loved to read, a trait she passed on to both her children and her grandchildren Christine and Christopher.

Catherine is survived by her two children, Frederick R. Morin (Lorraine Madden) of Florida and Cathy Morin Gallagher of East Sandwich. Her pride and joy were her 3 grandchildren, Christine McQuarrie and her husband Adam of Whitman, MA (whose wedding she was so happy to attend last August), Daniel Morin of Tennessee and Lt. Christopher Gallagher of Groton, Connecticut and also her sister in law Pat Morin of Rhode Island and her family. She was predeceased by her 3 younger sisters, Ellen, Anne and Mary.

The family would like to thank the Staff at the Bridges by Epoch at Mashpee for the love and compassion in taking care of Catherine who they all lovingly called “Mama” and Evette who cared for her prior to her move to the Bridges. Thank you to the compassionate care from the Beacon Hospice team.

Catherine lived a wonderful, fulfilling life and never wanted for anything except to go to her beloved beach one more time.

Due to Covid restrictions there will be no visiting hours. The family invites friends to attend her funeral Mass at Corpus Christi Parish in East Sandwich at 11:00am on Thursday October 15, 2020.

Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers the family would like to request donations be made in Catherine’s name to the Bridges by Epoch in Mashpee at 462 Old Barnstable Road, Mashpee MA 02649. For directions and online condolences please visit www.nickersonbournefuneralhome.com.
