SOUTH RIVER - CATHERINE CANTASANO, age 94, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her loving family, on June 25, 2019.

Formerly of Staten Island, NY, Catherine moved to South River, NJ, with her daughter, after the passing of her beloved husband, John Cantasano, in 2009.

A homemaker, Catherine was known to all as an exceptional seamstress, and a loving, caring mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was the Matriarch of a close knit family and will be missed dearly.

She is survived by her devoted children and their husbands; Antoinette Mazzariello (Tony) and Theresa Tobin (Phil); dear grand-mother of Kurt Kracsun, Philip Jr., Kim and Jay Tobin; loving great-grandmother of T.J. Kracsun, Amanda Rider, Philip Tobin III and Kay Carambia; and great-great grandmother to Lucas, Lydia, Cameron and Audrey Rider. Also surviving are what her family calls her fur babies, whom she loved and cared for with all her heart; Coco, Gizmo, Nugget and Beau.

There will be a visitation to celebrate her life on Friday, June 28th, from 2-4 & 7-9 PM, at The BRUNSWICK MEMORIAL HOME, 454 Cranbury Road, East Brunswick, NJ 08816.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday, June 29th, at 8:15 AM at the funeral home, followed by a 9:00 AM Mass of Christian Burial at Corpus Christi RC Church, where Catherine was a devoted parishioner, located at 100 James Street, South River, NJ 08882. Committal will take place at the Cemetery of the Resurrection, 391 Sharrott Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10309.
