Cathy worked at Palm Manor Nursing Home in Chelmsford, MA for 20 plus years. Prior to her current job she worked at several other local nursing homes. She volunteered at soup kitchens and took calls at the battered women’s shelter. Cathy will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, cousin, Nena and friend to many.
