Mrs. Catherine E. Costello died Friday at Middletown, after a two months' illness. Mrs. Costello was a member of St. Joseph's Church, a worker of the Ladies' Auxiliary of Catholic Charities and a member of the Sacred Heart League. She was a tireless worker in church activities, and was known to practically everyone in the parish.

Mrs. Costello was born near Monticello April 3, 1854, daughter of James and Sarah Fagan McGarvey. She lived in Port Jervis nine years, and since that time has been a resident of Middletown. She was married at Ellenville, St. Andrew's Church, by Rev. Father Mugan to William Costello, deceased.

She was the mother of twelve children, eight of whom survive; Sarah T., wife of Thomas F. Agnew, of North Bergen, N.J.; Mary A. Costello at home; Nellie U., wife of F. B. Williams, and Thomas B. Costello, of Middletown; Sister Agnes Marita, Sister of Charity and teacher in St. Mary's School, Port Chester; William F. Costello, at home; Rev. Charles A. Costello, of DuBois, Pa., and John V. Costello, at home. Also surviving are eight grandchildren and one brother, James J. McGarvey, of Middletown.
