Catherine Bares, 88, of North Harrison Street, Port Washington, died Monday, July 10, 2006, at Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Port Washington.

She was born in Detroit, Michigan to George and Anna Schleftgen Plein on July 30, 1917. Both her parents died in the flu epidemic in the early 1920's and she moved to Harrison Street in Port Washington, to be raised by her grandmother, Catherine Schleftgen. She married Alvin M. Bares of Port Washington Wisconsin at St. Mary's Church, on April 25, 1942.

Catherine started working at JE Gilson Foundry in Port Washington right after she graduated from high school in 1934. She was a personal secretary for George Gilson until the time of the foundry fire in 1960. She then began working as a bookkeeper and office manager at the former Heatwole Foundry in Knellsville, Town of Port Washington, from 1961 until it closed in 1991. She was a very organized, meticulous perfectionist. She was a soft spoken and nice lady.

She is survived by her husband Alvin, sister-in-law Adeline Deppisch of Port Washington and brother-in-law Gerald Bares of Black River Falls, Wisconsin. Further survived by nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

The Rev. Allan Sommers will officiate the Mass of Christian Burial, 11 a.m., Thursday, July 13, 2006, at St. Mary's Church, 430 N. Johnson Street, Port Washington. Interment parish cemetery.

I'm a Plein desendant from the Detroit area & found your parents "Daisy" & George's final resting place in Mt Olivet Cemetery. I choose a daisy, for you to share with them. Rest in Peace
