GUILFORD, Catherine M. Slawski, 83, of Riverbend Homes in Guilford, died on March 25, 2004 at Hibbard Nursing Home in Dover-Foxcroft. She was born in Penacook, New Hampshire, March 21, 1921 to William and Evangeline Gailey. She graduated from New Hampshire State Hospital School of Nursing in 1942. Catherine served her country overseas as an Army nurse during WWII. There she met her beloved husband, First Sergeant Thaddeus Slawski. After the war, they settled in Brooklyn, New York, where they raised three children, Ted, Danielle and John. Catherine worked in various hospitals in New York City, including Beth Israel. Upon retirement the couple moved to Penacook, where Catherine lived until the death of her husband. She moved to Riverbend Homes and greatly enjoyed getting together with the “girls”. Her faith in the Lord sustained her through her last illness.

Catherine spent most of her life caring for people and she will be greatly missed by her children; Ted Slawski and his wife DiDi of Amherst, Massachusetts, Danielle Gioia and her husband Joseph of Guilford, and John Slawski and his wife Sarah of Penacook. She leaves behind grandchildren, Jody, Sarah, Tom, Dan, Ben Matt, Billy and Brendan, and one great granddaughter, Sarah.
