Catherine Hartnett, a loving wife, mother, and Nana, passed from this world November 25th, 2017. She was much loved and will be sorely missed.

Catherine Marie Hartnett was born September 22, 1923 to Robert Earl Stephenson and Catherine McCartney Stephenson in Brainerd, Minnesota. She grew up in Fargo, ND, attended Sacred Heart Academy and moved to Kansas City, Missouri  to attend and graduate from nursing school. It was in Kansas City that she met her husband, Richard Vincent Hartnett and they were married September 14, 1946. The family moved to Fort Worth in 1957 when her husband, Dick, found employment with Convair, later General Dynamics. They became members of St. Andrew’s Parish and later St. Bartholomew’s. They later moved to Colleyville and joined Good Shepherd Catholic Church.

Catherine loved to fish and found joy being around water. She particularly loved the ocean in the Big Sur/Carmel area, and San Francisco was one of her favorite places to retreat.  Above all, she most loved times spent with her children and grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her son, Stephen Hartnett.
