In memory of
Catherine Irene Diodato, 72, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on April 14, 2021. Born on October 6, 1948 Catherine was the daughter of the late Roy and Evelyn Reidell. Catherine was a good woman who was truly loved by everyone who came in her life. She was very simple and loved her flower garden and doing yard work. She would often go over to her daughter Angela's house and work on her flower garden as well. Catherine will be remembered as the best Grammy to her grandchildren, a wonderful cook, and holidays won't be the same without her touch. Holidays were just her thing. She left behind her best dog friend, Abby. Abby was the light of Catherine's life. She lived a wonderful life thanks to her family and her late husband of 53 years, Richard, who cannot be described as anything less than her soulmate. Catherine's family asks that you make a toast to Mr. and Mrs. Diodato for the wonderful life they lived. Left behind to honor Catherine is son Anthony Diodato with wife Christine; daughter Angela Diodato with husband Al Silen; brother Dick Reidell; grandchildren Miranda and Nathan Diodato, Bretney and Rickey Dumais, Serenity Silen; and great-grandchildren Carson and Broden Diodato. Catherine is preceded in death by her parents Roy and Evelyn Diodato; loving husband Richard Diodato; sister Bonnie Clark; and brother Larry Reidell; In lieu of flowers the family is asking that all memorial contributions be made in Catherine's honor to St. Jude Children's Hospital. A gathering of family and friends will be held on Friday, May 14, 2021 from 10 A.M. to 11 A.M. followed by a time for sharing of memories at the Hetrick-Bitner Funeral Home 3125 Walnut St. Harrisburg, PA, 17109.
