Our beloved Catherine (Kay) Castiglione age 91 entered eternal rest on January 31, 2021 in her
home in Jenkintown, PA. She was born August 31, 1929 with twin Nicole in Brooklyn, NY to
Giovanni Mannelli and Anne Marie Romanelli and had siblings Severio, Delores and Anne
Marie. Her parents and siblings all preceded her in passing.
She was devoted to 48 years of marriage to Frank Castiglione of Long Island, NY from June
1954 – September 2002 when he preceded her. She is survived by all their children Andrew and
wife Charlotte from Ontario, Vincenza and husband Robert Martines from Colorado, Teresa and
husband William Viola from New York, and Frank and wife Cathy from Pennsylvania; along with
eight grandchildren Brittany, Olivia, Miranda, Matthew, Bryan, Bill, Mia and Lily; and her
goddaughter Florence Daly of Florida.
Catherine was always a loving wife and mother first. She worked in a factory, as an accountant
and last worked in the Black Forest Bakery in Lindenhurst, NY. She was dedicated to knitting
and donated blankets to several nurseries at local hospitals. She was an avid reader and loved
to play Scrabble, Bingo, Uno and most of all, Rummy. In our hearts, she’ll always be our queen
A private service will take place later in 2021 at Calverton National Cemetery located in Long
Island, NY. In lieu of flowers, please kindly provide a memorial donation to Feeding America as
Catherine would want people to have access to food during these hard times. A special thanks
to the wonderful staff at Constellation Services for providing at home hospice care.
