Committal Service

Catherine Caratozzolo Marquez, 78, of Brooklyn, New York, born Jan. 21, 1945, departed Oct. 7, 2023 to be with her long time loving husband of 42 years, Pedro Marquez and her two brothers Dominic and Charles. She leaves behind her siblings, Josephine, Frank, Louis, and Francis. Cathy had the purest and sweetest soul. With a heart that would fill the entire room and a belly laugh that was unforgettable, she was sure to make you feel welcomed and right at home. Cathy expressed her love through her passion for cooking and never letting you go hungry…ever. Her legacy will be left behind, as she is survived by her children, Peter Marquez, Ada Kelly, and Abraham Marquez. She loved her daughter-in-laws Jeanna, Anita, Tina, Jennifer and son-in-law Brock dearly. The love for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren was endless: Jeremy, Matthew, Ryan, Althene, Amber, Austin, Jordan, Alyssa, Jadyn, Kanen, Isabella, Roen, Luna, Ivy, Oliver, August, and Houston – along with countless other extended members who she loved as her own.

A visitation will be held on Sunday, October 15th at Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5033 Rouse Dr. Virginia Beach, VA 23462 from 4pm to 6pm. A Memorial Service will be held at Altmeyer Funeral Home on Monday, October 16th at 11am. Cathy will then be laid to rest alongside her eternal love, Pedro, at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Norfolk, VA. A “Celebration of Life” will follow at the Kelly Residence.
