Catherine M. Roth

July 21, 1978December 27, 2017

Catherine Roth passed away on December 27th 2017. She was the daughter of Barbara and Edward Roth, currently of Harwich, MA.

Catherine was born in Pittsfield, MA on July 21, 1979. She attended Catholic schools and graduated from St. Joseph High School. She was a very active member of her class participating in a number of activities. She particularly enjoyed cross country running and working with younger children, which she continued to do in her chosen profession.

Catherine attended Siena College in Loudonville, NY where she received a BS degree in Biology with honors. Now focused on becoming a medical doctor, she volunteered at Albany Medical Center doing various tasks and shadowing doctors as they made their rounds. She then attended the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, ME from which she graduated with honors in 2005. She did her residency in Pediatrics at the Medical University of South Carolina and took her first job with Wee Care Pediatrics in Salem, NH. She was currently employed at Pediatric Health Associates at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Catherine was completely devoted to her job as a pediatrician. She simply loved working with the youth of all ages. She had many outside talents as well, among which were making a house a home. She loved the ocean and always dreamed of living near it. She enjoyed beaches in Maine, where she learned scuba diving, and beaches in South Carolina, but she especially loved the beaches and ponds on Cape Cod where she spent much time vacationing both as a child and an adult.

Catherine is survived by her parents, her daughter Arielle, two sisters Cynthia and Christine Roth both of Harwich, and several aunts and uncles, as well as many cousins and friends scattered around the country. She will be missed by all who knew her and those she served.

A memorial Mass will be held on January 13th at 11 a.m. in Holy Trinity Church, West Harwich. Burial will be held privately. Donations may be made to Boston Children’s Hospital in Dr. Roth’s memory. Arrangements are under the direction of Doane, Beal & Ames Funeral Home, West Harwich.

To the Roth Family,

I am so very sorry for your loss. I went through the Pittsfield Catholic schools with Cathy. She was so incredibly kind, genuine, smart, and talented. I have many fond memories of running cross-country together, sitting next to her in chemistry class, and participating in many school activities. It was no surprise to me to hear she had become a doctor. Cathy made the world a better place. Please accept my most sincere condolences and know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
