Catherine D. Kyle
September 9, 1920
December 18, 2021
Passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at the remarkable age of 101: beloved wife of 64 years of the late Jack F. Kyle; daughter of the late Michael and Gertrude Fisher and the youngest of 7 siblings. Loving mother of Mary Anne (Bob) Kinzler, Jean (late Ken) Kozy, Jack (Pauline) Kyle, and the late Charles (Judy survives) and Donald Kyle; adoring grandmother of Mary, Chris, Anita (Pete), Donna, Chuckie, Amy (Mike), John (Shannon), Sue, David, John (Erin), Kelley, and the late Christopher; doting great-grandmother to Amanda (Dave), Kevin (Katie), Chuckie, Meghan, Madison, Jonathon, Benjamin, Tyler, Matthew, Joseph, Hannah, Ryan, Jacob, Holland, & Blair; and caring great- great-grandmother to Tommy and Aidan. She is also survived by many dear nieces, nephews, and friends.
Catherine devoted her life to her faith and her family. As a lifelong member of St. Luke Church and a member of the Christian Mothers and Guild, Catherine’s greatest joy was passing her Catholic faith on to her family. A legendary baker and talented cook, she was happiest visiting with the company who stopped by daily to share her zest for life, help root on a Pittsburgh sports team, experience her pretty flowers on the back porch, celebrate a birthday, or enjoy a delicious meal; always feeling welcome and surely never leaving hungry. A humble matriarch and faith filled role model; Catherine will be dearly missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.

Olivet Cemetery.
