Catherine Mary Marr, 92, passed away Wednesday, February 20, 2019, in Fort Worth, Texas, after a long battle fighting Parkinson’s disease.
Catherine was born in Douglas Township, Iowa on August 14, 1926. She married Francis Marr on December 27, 1947 and together they raised seven children in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. They owned and operated the “Witt’s End Motel” for several years.
After her husband, Francis, passed away, Catherine worked as a secretary in the office of Urban Middle School in Sheboygan. She loved to travel and spend time with her family as much as possible.

Photo albums were her specialty and she was meticulous in compiling family pictures. She never wasted anything.
