In memory of
Cathleen A. Sherlock
Cathleen A. Sherlock, 72 An Adirondack chair in a peaceful setting was her idea of paradise On the afternoon of July 8, 2019, Cathleen Sherlock, devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away, and is now embraced in God's arms. Cathie was born on Dec. 15, 1946, to William and Alicia Carson, and grew up as the youngest of five children in Westfield, N.J. She graduated from Holy Trinity High School in 1964 and received a bachelor's degree in nursing from St. Vincent's College in 1967. Cathie married James E. Sherlock Sr. in 1967, moved to Brooklyn, and eventually settled in Staten Island. She became the loving mother of three children, James (1968), Colleen (1970), and Brian (1974), and loved them dearly until her death. Cathie devoted much of her life to nursing and selflessly helping others. She extended her education with a master's degree in nursing from St. Vincent's in 1982, and loved caring for newborns at Richmond Memorial Hospital on Staten Island as well as Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn before her retirement in 2009. Cathie enjoyed the simple pleasures of walking with friends and a good book. She could often be seen walking to or from Dunkin' Donuts with a cup of coffee in her hand. An Adirondack chair in a peaceful setting was her idea of paradise. She enjoyed animals, and there was always a dog in the house. Cathie was very active in the Staten Island Companion Dog Training Club, and believed that every dog should have a home, and every home should have a dog. She was a spiritual person and active in Holy Child Catholic Church. Cathie enjoyed sitting for adoration, and attending Mass each week. Above all else, family was most important to Cathie, and she loved being surrounded by her children and grandchildren. She touched many lives in her 72 years and will be missed dearly. Cathleen is survived by her husband, James E. Sherlock Sr.; adored children, James Sherlock Jr., Colleen Rivera, and Brian Sherlock; beloved son-in-law, Isaac Rivera; treasured daughters-in-law, Lori Sherlock and Daneen Weingarten; cherished grandchildren, Rachel Rivera, James Rivera, and Matthew Rivera; and much-loved sister, Mary Wibbelsman. Cathleen was also a "very special mother" to Melissa and Frank Cuonzo, and "very special grandmother" to Kyle Cuonzo and Logan Cuonzo. She will be reunited with her parents, William and Alicia Carson; brothers, Robert Carson and William Carson; and sister , Eileen Carson. A Mass of Christian Rite will be offered at 11 a.m. on Friday at Holy Child Church, 4747 Amboy Rd., Staten Island, N.Y. 10312. The family will receive friends from 2 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, July 11, 2019, at John Vincent Scalia Home for Funerals, Inc., 28 Eltingville Blvd., Staten Island, N.Y.
