Sullivan, Catherine B. (nee Barnes) of Mantua, NJ on March 24, 2009. Aged 90 years.


A stylish and stunning woman, Catherine's remarkable creative talents transcended the art world. As an illustrator of children's and religious items, Catherine was employed with both Hallmark and American Greetings and enjoyed artistic competition with such notables as Winston Churchill. Life for Catherine was never limited, as evidenced by her love of family, her faith and devotion to parish family of the Church of the Incarnation. Catherine was the aunt everyone wished they had.


Catherine is the loving wife of the late Roger F. Sullivan; devoted sister of Virginia Worthington and her husband John. Predeceased by her parents, Esther (nee Ryan) and William Barnes and her siblings Esther B. (William) Monroe, Elen B. (Robert) Rittenhouse and William J. Barnes; dearest Aunt to many.
