Obituary of Catherine A. Skelly
It is with great sadness that the family of Catherine A. Skelly, 87, of Southampton, New Jersey announces her passing on March 28, 2020. Catherine was a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She is survived by her children; John Skelly and Catherine De Tore, (William), her grandchildren; Ryan Skelly, Matthew De Tore (Jennifer), Jaclyn De Tore (Mark), and Erin Clarelli (Vincent), and her great-grandson Benjamin De Tore. Catherine was born and raised in the Bronx, New York before moving to Brentwood, New York. Prior to Catherine's retirement she spent 30 years helping children as a teachers aide in the Brentwood School District. She also spent many years working at JC Penney, which was fitting because she loved to shop and find a good deal. Catherine was at her happiest when she was surrounded by her family while drinking a hot cup of Lipton tea. She had a wonderful sense of humor and her laugh made everyone smile. Catherine was a devout Catholic. Services for Catherine are being held privately due to the current health crisis caused by COVID-19 and the recommendation of the CDC. Interment will take place privately at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne, NY. A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
