11/13/1936 - 12/31/2020
Catherine Madeline Tamis passed away in her home in Flushing, NY on December 31, 2020, surrounded by her four beloved daughters, Catherine, Lisa, Jacqueline and Anne Marie. Catherine deeply loved her husband of 51 years, the late Anthony Francis, and dedicated the early years of their marriage to providing a warm and loving home for the family. Catherine very much valued the importance of education. After her four daughters graduated with professional degrees, she earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Queens College. Catherine loved reading, shopping, travel and weekend getaways, the seaside, celebrating holidays and family milestones, and debating politics. She spent her life surrounded by the laughter of her loving daughters and her grandchildren, Brittany, Christopher, Zachary, Michael, Ashleigh, Vivian, Gabrielle, Richard and Filippo, and she shared in the joy of the birth of her great granddaughter Lila. Catherine truly lived life to the fullest. Her memory will live on in our hearts as we carry on her legacy.
