Wife of George C Whiting

Daughter of

Marie Frances (Cormier)
One sister, Edna Madeleine

Katharine was the first baby born in Whitinsville Hospital.
She grew up in Hopedale. She was only 5 yrs old when her mother died. Her grandparents mainly took care of her and her sister. They tried their best to give them everything little girls should have, including dancing lessons.

After marriage, she lived in her husband's grandfather's home until her second child was born. After living in Milford for a few months, they moved to Jamestown, RI for 2 yrs then Newport for 8 yrs where her husband worked for the Naval Torpedo Station.

When her children were in school, she worked part time as a Nurse's Aid in Newport Hospital, then delivering telegrams.
They also rented 2 rooms in their home for the wives of Service Men.
One of the wives became a close friend to their family.

When the war was over they moved to Shrewsbury, Ma. where her husband started a business selling Applicances, Televisions and Lawn Equip.

Whenever a family member or friend was sick, she always helped them out.

Sadly, 3 weeks after her last child was born, she died of a very sudden stroke.
