Catherine enjoyed a full and rich life all in good health in Brooklyn and then in Staten Island. Secretary of Regina Pacis Parish, Officer of St. Frances De Chantal Home School Association, Officer and Den Mother of the Cub Scouts, CCD Teacher, Founder and Leader of The 57th Street Block Association - she actively engaged and embraced all. Mostly, Catherine was fulfilled by engaging in life with her family, a proud mother, grandmother and great grandmother, and with her friends. The older she got the larger her circle grew because once you were in Catherine's circle she never let you go.
Catherine Petti is now reunited in eternal rest with her husband, Antimo Petti, and son, Philip S. Petti. She is survived by her loving children: Thomas Petti, Adrian Foran, Jacqueline Butt and their respective spouses Lisa, Lawrence and Richard, her daughter-in-law Eileen Petti, her ten grandchildren and her four great grandchildren.
