Caterina Cusato, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, passed into Eternal Rest on Monday, August 26th, 2019.

Caterina was born to Giuseppe and Maria Multari in Gerace, Reggio Calabria, Italy on September 2, 1939. She married the love of her life, the late Vincenzo Cusato, and they resided in Calabria until immigrating to the United States in 1970.

Caterina is remembered as a "living saint" whose primary concerns were loving, serving, and caring for her family. Her greatest joys were found in her faith, her children, and her abundant garden - but the title that gave her the most pride was "Nonna," and her happiest days were the arrivals of her six grandchildren, on whom she lavished her endless affection (and countless jars of her one-of-a-kind tomato sauce.) Her beautiful, warm smile, gentle spirit, sweet laugh and sense of humor were balms to the souls of all those who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her husband of nearly 50 years, Vincenzo. She is survived and remembered by her beloved children Fortunato (Jessica) Cusato, Giuseppe (Susanne) Cusato, and Rosemarie (Francesco) Pomilla, her brother Fortunato (Natalie) Multari, her sisters Rosa (Domenico) LaRosa, Carmela (the late Carmelo) Zangrilli, and Teresa (the late Raffaele) Mastrorilli, grandchildren Elizabeth, Luke, Christa Rita, Joseph, Vincenzo, and Emmanuelle, and many devoted nieces, nephews, and cousins - all of whom mourn her while thanking the Lord for the incomporable gifts of her life and her love.

Calling hours are Wednesday, August 28th, 2019, from 5:00pm - 9:00pm at Beecher Flooks Funeral Home, 418 Bedford Road, Pleasantville, NY 10570. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Thursday, August 29th, 2019 9:30 AM at Holy Innocents Church, 431 Bedford Road, Pleasantville, NY 10570. Interment will follow at Ferncliff Manor in Hartsdale, NY.

I didn't get the pleasure of spending a lot of time with Caterina, but the little time that I did spend, it was easy to see what a special and caring individual she was. I was always so happy to see her. She will be missed. May she rest in peace. I am saying prayers for all of her family at this difficult time.

🤗Ciao Fort, che dolore e tristezza, tu lo sai che io non sono religioso quanto té, ma pregherò per Zia Catuzza 🙏🙏, per i sorrisi e le parole dolci che ha sempre donato a tutti noi, propio oggi mentre stavo lavorando pensavo che fra pochi giorni sarebbe stato il suo compleanno ma nelle condizioni di sofferenza in cui stava non avreste avuto modo di gioirne, che possa riposare in pace ciao Zia🙏🤗❤
