Catherine Arnold Obituary

Catherine Kay Arnold

April 28, 1930 - April 15, 2020
Born in Tarrytown, NY
Resided in Waterford, Connecticut


Catherine Lester Arnold of Waterford and Venice FL was born in Tarrytown
New York on April 28th, 1930. She passed away peacefully on April 15th in her
home in Florida.

On the day her family was to celebrate her 90th birthday, we
gathered instead to lay her to rest beside her husband Theodore James Arnold
who she shared fifty years of marriage with. Together they raised three
daughters, Kathleen Leone of Jacksonville NC, Laura Koziatek of Venice Fl. and
Betsy Wanstall of Weeki Wachee Fl.

Catherine grew up with three brothers John,Joseph and Frank Lester who along with their wives predeceased her.

Mom loved spending time with all seven grandchildren; Adam, Ellen, Scott and
Jack Koziatek, Michelle and Billy Wanstall and Maryann Arnold Martin. Grandma
was promoted to “GG” with the addition of four great grandchildren, Sophia,
Brett, Daniel and Levi.

GG had a great sense of humor and could easily be encouraged to share in
family time, antics and adventures. Mom was always sharp as a tack and
counted on for her opinions on multiple subjects. Her favorite mantra and fear of
“being a burden” was a joke as she was the rock of the family. Kay found joys
with her time spent at the senior center, and volunteering at meals on wheels.
She would often speak fondly of her friends there and in her exercise classes
and card club.

As teenagers we would try and keep secrets from her…”impossible”.
As we grew up we shared secrets with her. Life continues to evolve but there will
never be a day she will not be missed.

In light of the Covid-19 experience we will plan a Celebration of Life for our
wonderful mother at a later date.
