Birth: May 24, 1852
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 16, 1920
Delaware, USA

Catherine Agnes (Ward) Killroy was the beloved daughter of Hugh Ward and Catherine (McIlheney) Ward (both immigrants born in County Donegal Ireland).

By 1870, the family was living in Wilmington Delaware. Catherine was the sister of Ellen (Ella), Anne (Annie), and Mary (died young).

In 1873, Catherine married Patrick J Killroy (born in 1848 in County Roscommon, Ireland). They were the loving parents of: Mary Veronica (Mame)(born 1874), Anne Elizabeth (born 1876), Margaret Theresa (Maggie)(born 1878), Catherine Agnes (Kate)(born 1880), and James (born 1885).

After Patrick's untimely death in 1886, Catherine's sisters Annie and Ella lived with her and her family for many years, until Catherine's death, in Wilmington, in 1920. Thus, after almost 34 years of widowhood, she was finally reunited with Patrick, in heaven.
