It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mom, Catherine (Murtari) Evans of Cromwell, CT (formerly of Hope Valley, RI) after a very long  battle with dementia on July 23, 2018. She is now at peace with our dad who predeceased her in 2009. She leaves to mourn her three cherished daughters and their families, Debbi and Jim Maynard of Columbia, CT, Denise and Glenn Milardo-Martonic of San Diego, CA and Dianne and Paul Evans-Pulcini of Newington, CT. She also leaves her special granddaughter and great grandson, Angela Milardo and C.J. Maggio of San Diego. Along with our dad Richard, Catherine was predeceased by her brother, Joseph Murtari. She is also survived by her sister, Patricia Prouty; her sister-in-law Patricia Murtari and sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Sheila and Dennis Madigan. She also leaves three nieces, two nephews and their families as well as numerous extended family and friends.  Our family would like to thank Pilgrim Manor of Cromwell and Franciscan Hospice Care for their loving care of our mom. Fly free momma! Enjoy the heavenly garden parties with dad.
