She was the youngest of four children. Catherine married Emerson D. Rogers on July 4, 1953. They had three daughters: Lana (Steve) Jurgens, Teri (Richard) Rogers-Einhorn, and Christina (Rick) Gagnon. She was preceded in death by Emerson Rogers.
Catherine later met and married Frank Moore on December 10, 1994, in Reno, Nevada.

Catherine was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She enjoyed many years of travel; spending winters in Arizona, traveling in Mexico and visiting almost every state in the US. She loved time with her family and fun with her grandchildren. The grandchildren were included in many of her travels to Eastern Washington, camping at the beach, and train trips. She also loved crocheting and spent many hours making afghans for family members, friends, grandchildren and great grandchildren throughout the years. Catherine was an avid reader and it was typical for her to have books stacked next to her chair and her two dogs sleeping on her lap.

Dear Mother, you are not forgotten
Though on earth you are no more
Still in memory you are with us
As you always were before
