Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother.

Catherine Moore, age 89, of Norwalk, passed away Friday, March 9, 2018 at the Carriage House in Norwalk.

Catherine was born in Malden, Massachusetts on June 7, 1928, to the late Giovanni and Maria (Moscaritolo) Imbriano. Catherine was a devoted wife and a nurturing stay-at-home mother. She remained at home to raise her six children and care for her husband and their home. When her children were grown, Catherine volunteered as a Pink Lady at the Fisher-Titus Hospital in Norwalk, OH.

Catherine loved to cook and her family and friends were always welcomed at her table. Family was everything to Catherine. She was a caring, devoted, and loving wife and mother, and an adoring Nana and great Nana. She thoroughly enjoyed her grandchildren and was so excited to meet her first great grandson last fall. Nana would never miss an opportunity to babysit her adoring grandchildren. She enjoyed parties and was a social butterfly.

While residing at The Carriage House in Norwalk, the past seven and half years, she loved doing puzzles, gardening, feeding the birds, playing corn hole, dart ball and ran Saturday afternoon Jackpot with her neighbors. The family would like to extend a special thanks to Stein Hospice and Home Instead for providing wonderful support and care. They would also like to express their deepest thanks and gratitude to the staff at The Carriage House Assisted Living for going above and beyond in their care, support and hospitality.

Catherine enjoyed life and having fun. She had a great sense of humor. Catherine and Robert also enjoyed train trips from the East Coast to the West Coast, had taken a couple cruises to the Caribbean and traveled to Hawaii.

She is survived by her six loving children, Robert F. Moore of Leominster, MA; John F. Moore and his wife, Alyce of Lowell, MA; Stephen M. Moore of Leominster, MA; Frederick C. Moore and his wife, Darlene of Palmer, MA; Carol A. Moore of Chelmsford, MA; and Kenneth A. Moore and his wife, Shelly of Norwalk, OH; her six adoring grandchildren, Jennifer D. (Rick) Skoglund of Westwood, MA; Jonathan Moore of Claremont, NH; Jalyn R. Moore, Alexa C. Moore, and Ava G. Moore of Norwalk, OH; one great grandchild, Bodie I. Skoglund of Westwood, MA; one sister, Jean Sousa of Revere, MA; one brother, John Imbriano and his wife, Anita of Lynn, MA; a brother-in-law Donald Moore and his wife Marie of Berryville, VA, and Fred C. Moore and his wife, Pamm of Redwood City, CA, and many nieces and nephews. Catherine was also the sister of the late Mario P. Imbriano; sister-in-law to the late Joseph Sousa; mother-in-law to the late Evelyn Moore; and grandmother to the late Lily Ann Moore.
