On February 14, 1948 Catherine married Edward J. Becker. Catherine was a cheerful, loyal friend to all who knew her. She loved being a homemaker and hostess. She enjoyed cooking and baking – much appreciated by all her family. She volunteered with charitable organizations in Southold, Long Island, NY where she lived from 1971 to 2006. She was always a champion for veterans and she belonged to the Griswold Terry Glover Post 803 of the American Legion in Southold where she enjoyed many activities, especially Bingo.
