Catherine’s Obituary It is with great sadness that the family of Catherine “Cathy” A. (DiBenedetto) Ferrante, of Marshfield announces her passing on October 18, 2019 at the age of 71. Cathy was the beloved wife of S. Dominic Ferrante, and loving mother to her three daughters; Terry Shea and Jeffrey Graham of Laconia, NH, Karen and Craig Ames of Marshfield, Holly and Matthew Cappello of Norwell. She was also the loving step-mother to Elaine Ferrante and John Harrington of Quincy, Michael and Susan Ferrante of Rockland and Peter and Amy Ferrante of Plymouth. She was also the cherished grandmother to Kaylee, Ryan, Mackenzie, Chase, Julia, Dominic, Anna, Katie, Anthony, Joey and Timmy. Cathy was born on March 24, 1948 in Boston. She grew up in Jamaica Plain and graduated from Blessed Sacrament High School in 1965. Upon graduation, she worked at New England Telephone Company. She married and then dedicated her life to raising her 3 children. As her children grew more independent, she worked as a bookkeeper at the Boston Globe and then at Scituate Concrete Pipe. Cathy was a loving, kind and caring person who will be missed by all who knew and loved her. Her love and loyalty to her family and friends was evident in all that she did. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family; especially her loving grandchildren whom she adored tremendously. Cathy enjoyed attending shows and concerts, nights out on the town trying new restaurants, shopping and traveling. She enjoyed many adventures in New England as well as visits to Florida, New York, Atlantic City, Memphis, Nashville, Aruba, Italy, Nova Scotia and Punta Cana. She truly cherished every moment that she had with her family and friends. Cathy was predeceased by her parents Albert (2016) and Catherine (Mahoney) DiBenedetto (2009). Even though Cathy’s time on earth is done, and her special hugs and kisses will be missed, our love and memories of her will never fade. Her memory will live on in our hearts forever.
