Katherine leaves behind her daughters Lynda Arraje, Katherine Mastrapasqua, Robin Korkus, son Frank DeLuca, her grandchildren Jason Arraje, Jesse DeLuca, Michael DeLuca, Christopher Massad, Amanda Massad, four great grandchildren, and her sister Mildred Harned.

Katherine spent 72 years in Worcester. Some of her favorite memories were spending time with her family and friends at Hampton Beach, baking, drawing, and doing word searches and puzzles. She adored her family and loved spending time with them.

A special thank you to the CareOne Millbury staff, especially Krystina, Christy, Annie, Liz, and Oscar, who cared for her over the last 7 years. 

In memory of Katherine, give someone a hug, pay them a compliment, or simply smile at a stranger. You never know when or how you can make someone's day.

A celebration of life will be held in private at the request of the family.
