Please share a memory of Catherine to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Catherine Marie Calvi, 89, of Westover passed away peacefully at The Madison Center on Monday, December 14, 2015. Catherine was born in Morgantown on February 3, 1926 to the late Louis Quagliotti and Louisa Beata Quagliotti.
Catherine was a pillar of faith in her family and a member of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church.
Catherine was a bookkeeper for Manhattan Market on High Street and was a member of the Columbian Lodge.

As well as being a member of the planning committee for the City of Westover and the VFW Auxiliary, she was also chairwoman for the Monongalia County Fair Queen Pageant for over twenty years. Catherine was very proud of the huge cake she made on West Virginia’s 100th Birthday in the shape of the state of West Virginia.
In her spare time, Catherine enjoyed flower arranging, crafts, and most of all spending time with her family and spoiling her grandchildren.
