Catherine Louise Vining Miner, 82, passed away suddenly on January 15, 2022. Born in Melrose, she was the daughter of the late Louise (Moriarty) and Philip Vining. She grew up in Saugus, MA and lived in Wakefield, Melrose, and later years in Holliston.
Catherine’s family will dearly miss her unaltering kindness and stability everyday. During her retirement, after working many years with the federal government and HAFB, she enjoyed her Himalayan cats, watching nature, bluebirds, deer, and turkeys pass through her yard and spending time with her grandsons.
She leaves behind two daughters: Sharon Clasen (wife of Robert Clasen) and Denise Erving (wife of Paul Tagliapietra); four grandchildren: Phoebe Clasen, Raina Clasen, Nicholas Tagliapietra, and Philip Tagliapietra; two siblings: Doris Clark and Robert Vining; and her Himalayan cat Holly. Arrangements are under the care of Chesmore Funeral Home of Holliston, with interment and service at Wakefield Forest Grove Cemetery early in spring, followed by a warm gathering and meal.
