Catherine N. Force, died peacefully in Mission Viejo and surrounded by her family.

Kay was born March 1, 1923 in Long Beach, California and passed on June 20, 2010.

Our Mom was welcomed to heaven by her Mom Phronsie and her Dad Bill. Kay leaves behind her husband, Bob, sons Greg and Gary, grandson Rob, granddaughters Janine and Jennifer, and great grandsons Tony and Tyler, daughter-in laws Vicki and Jinky, her brother John, and many nephews and nieces.

Mom dearly loved her family very much. She had a great sense of humor and was a natural comedian. Mom led a long and productive life, surviving the Great Depression, graduating from South Gate High in 1941. She married Dad in 1942 on a very hot day in July, 1942 in Las Vegas. In the early years of their marriage, she worked as a secretary in Los Angeles for several companies including Kraft Foods. Once Greg and Gary entered school, she became a stay-at-home-mom for a few years and was involved in the PTA, as President. She later returned to the workforce with Vornado, Inc. in the accounting division until retirement. She was a member and officer in the Whittier Business Women's Assn. Mom and Dad raised our family in Whittier for 57 years and spent the last three years together in San Juan Capistrano living in a residential care facility.

A graveside memorial service was held on June 26, 2010 at Rose Hills.
