Cathy Claire Carbone 1943-2021
On June 12, 2021, we lost our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.
Cathy was born on August 3, 1943, in Tacoma, Washington to James and Jeanne Rawlings. She was the second born of seven children. She grew up in Tacoma, Washington where she graduated from Aquinas Academy in 1961 then married her loving husband of 58 years, John Richard Carbone. She became a loving wife and mother who adored her family. She worked in the banking industry prior to beginning her career with the Peninsula School District and retired as an Administrative Assistant in 2000. They moved to Long Beach, Washington to enjoy retired life. Cathy loved her family and always cared for those in need. She enjoyed reading, spending time at the casino with her sisters and friends playing slots and, especially, Bingo. She also enjoyed cooking, watching sports, fishing, clam digging, and beach sunsets.
Cathy was preceded in death by her parents, James & Jeanne Rawlings, and her sister, Sue Rawlings. She is survived by her husband, John; her two sons (and spouses): John (Yvonne); Curt (Christine); her three grandchildren: Jacob, Nicholas, and Nicole; sisters, brother, nieces and nephews.
