Catherine “Cathy” (Williams) Taft, age 64, of Old Forge, passed away Saturday morning at home, after an illness. Her faithful companion of almost 30 years, Gino Nalaschi, survives.
Born in Wilkes Barre on June 25, 1956, she was the daughter of the late William and Mary Catherine (Hoover) Williams. Cathy was raised in Pittston before moving to Taylor where she raised her three children.
Active and always on the go, whether it be in Atlantic City or on a cruise she never passed up a good slot machine. She loved being outdoors, especially while camping or fishing, and she also loved her BINGO. Above all else came her family, especially her adored grandchildren and great grandchildren. Now at peace, she will forever be missed by family and friends.
She is also survived by her loving children, daughter Catherine Marshall and husband Clifford, III of Taylor, and sons, Paul Taft, Jr. and wife Salena of Old Forge and Michael Taft and wife April of Scranton; seven grandchildren, Darcia, Jessica, Michele, Autumn, Makayla, Ashley and Miranda, her “Bubbles, the light of her grandma’s life; great grandchildren, Keith, Kaleigh, William, Anthony, Aiden, Bentley, Caleb and Colton; sisters, Mary Beth Mazonis and husband James of Pittston, Carol Sergio and June Williams, both of Pittston; brothers, Wicker Williams and wife Betty of N.Y., Edward Williams and wife Ruthie of Swoyersville and George Williams of West Pittston; her former husband, Paul Taft, Sr. of Taylor; and nieces and nephews.
Siblings, Archie, Robert, James, Wayne and Joan Williams and Charlotte Casterline also preceded her in death.
Her family wishes to thank those who had provided both care and comfort to both Cathy and her family throughout her illness, especially Dr. Darlene Dunay, Rev. Norm Demming and the entire staff of HHCP, especially Trish and Joan.
Private arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
