A Passing

Catalina "Katica" del Cueto
November 21, 1922 - November 20, 2014

On Thursday morning, we received the phone call that we knew was coming but dreaded.

Our beloved Aunt Katy who had been in poor health for the past few years and had been in and out of the hospital and a skilled nursing facility for the past month had taken a severe turn for the worse in the wee hours of the night.

I joined my sisters Marilyn and Linda at Pasadena's Huntington Memorial Hospital to say what would be our final goodbyes to her.

Katy passed away peacefully at about noon on Thursday, just 12 hours short of her 92nd birthday.

She was a strong woman, a great aunt and was loved by all who knew her.

What a great life to celebrate, what a loss for our family.
