Catherine L. Montesano Rosenberg

February 4, 1950 — June 26, 2024

Cortland

It is with great sadness we announce that Mrs. Catherine L. Montesano Rosenberg, 74, of Cortland, unexpectedly passed away on Wednesday, June 26th, at her residence. Catherine was born on February 4, 1950 in Bedford, Pennsylvania, a daughter of Eugene Mock and Nancy (Lawhead) Mock West.

Cathy was a devoted mother and grandmother who loved, encouraged, and supported her three daughters and five grandchildren. She loved her sons-in-law like they were her own. She was also a loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Cathy seized life to the fullest and was always up for the next adventure. She showered her grandchildren with gifts and traveled from coast-to-coast to be present at all of their events. In the past few years, she participated in a 5K, attended the Eras Tour concert in full costume, and traveled with her family to Sweden, Ecuador, and Greece. Grandma Cathy was the life of every New Year’s Eve party. She made the best meatballs, and her spinach dip was requested at every family get together. We will cherish these many memories and will forever hold her close in our hearts.

Cathy was an active member of the Grace Church of the Nazarene in Austintown where she served in many capacities, but especially enjoyed working in the nursery with the little ones. Cathy graduated from Austintown Fitch High School in 1968. She worked as a Licensed Practical Nurse for many years and served as an admissions director at area nursing homes before retiring in 2015.

Catherine is survived by her husband, John Rosenberg, and three daughters: Nancian (Damon) Meek, of Toledo, Staci (Tracey) Direnzo, of Austintown, and Leah (Nathan Schiffrik) Montesano, of Laurel, Maryland. She also leaves behind her five grandchildren: Elianna, Claira, Jacob, Zane, and Sylvia; two brothers: Gary (Sharon) Mock, and David (Diana) Mock, both of Austintown; and three sisters: Linda Lutz of Hudson, Ohio, Debra (Jesse) Hodge, of North Jackson, and Lisa (James) Caputo, of Largo, Florida.

She was preceded in death by her father, Eugene; her first husband, Joseph S. Montesano; and her brother-in-law, Donald Lutz.

Memorial services will be held at noon Friday, July 5th at the Grace Church of the Nazarene, 5253 W. Webb Rd., Austintown, with Pastor Nate Laughhunn officiating. Friends may call from 10:00 a.m. to noon on Friday at Grace Church. 

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the children’s fund at Grace Church.

Catherine will be peacefully laid to rest in the Green Haven Cemetery in Canfield.

Arrangements for Catherine are being provided by the Lane Funeral Home Austintown Chapel, 5797 Mahoning Ave., Austintown.
