Obituary for Catherine Zett
Catherine Frances Vitale Zett was born to Italian immigrants in 1921 and migrated to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania at the age of 4.
In 1943 she married George Edward Zett, also the son of immigrant parents from Czechoslovakia, a WWII veteran awarded a Purple Heart and the Bronze Star medal for bravery in the field as a medic. She was one of eleven children: three girls, Catherine, Rose, Amelia and eight brothers, Harry, Tony, Sebastian, Daniel, John, Joseph, Michael, and Leonard, all of whom she survived.
Catherine had six children, four of whom survive, Mary Lou Zett-DeVino, Michael John Zett, Taryn Rose Brooks-Faulconer, and Nigel Alan Joseph Zett. Catherine Frances and George Sebastian Zett are deceased.
She worked tirelessly until she was 79 when she retired from service to the Misericordia Nuns at their retirement home in Dallas, PA. She moved from Wilkes-Barre to New Hampshire to reside with her youngest son, Nigel (Alan) and his second wife Lucinda (Cindy), then with current wife Melanie (Lanie), where Nigel and family provided her with quality of life until she departed.
She is survived by eleven grandchildren: Douglas Arthur Otte, Jason and Crystal Zett, Kathryn Lee and Christopher Alan Faulconer, Tamara Lynn Pittis, Amanda Lynn Dylan Ritchie, Adam Joseph, Jared Alan, Ryan Robert, and Michael George Zett; six great grandchildren: Paige Addison and Douglas (Finn) Arthur Otte, Vince Lee Pittis, Sabrina Rose Makimoto, and Wyatt David and Claira Jean Dotson; and one great great grandchild: Jayden Kolva.
Catherine was a devout Catholic and a member of Divine Mercy Church in Peterborough, NH. Everywhere she went she made friends with her cheerful and playful personality. She will be loved and missed by all who knew her.
