4 Condolences for Doris C. (Carson) Cataldi

  • Prayers for Miss Doris’ family. I enjoyed getting to know her, and her family, when I worked at Millcroft. She loved playing for the resident’s & we enjoyed listening to her. May God Hold Her in the Palm of His Hand Until You Meet Again.

  • Greetings to the Cataldi Family – my deepest sympathies on the passing of Doris Cataldi – your Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother. The slide show brought back fond memories of Doris. I had known her since I first met Craig in 1962 and will miss her kindness, musical talent, lovely smile and infectious laugh. I wish you peace in the days ahead.
    Fondly, Deb Lindell

  • Our deepest sympathies, Cataldi family, for your loss of Doris. My sister, Ruth, & I met Doris at Millcroft visiting our mom. As vibrant as your slideshow, Doris and her sense of humor and friendliness was always there to say hello during our visit or sit outside on a nice day and chat. She would often show up at moms room for a walk, they both enjoyed that. So sorry for your loss and we will miss her and her smile.

  • Bruce, Alan, and Family.
    We are so sorry for your loss. Will always remember your Mom with affection. The pictures brought back lots of good memories.
