Tombstone Tuesday: Catherine Kurenda Yuzwiak

Catherine Kurenda Yuzwiak is my Baba’s sister. She is buried with her husband, John Yuzwiak, at the Holy Ghost Ukrainian Cemetery in Valley Township, just outside Coatesville in Chester County. She passed 37 years ago yesterday so I thought it fitting to feature her today on Tombstone Tuesday. 

Catherine was born on 1 January 1912 to John and Frances Skrabalak Kurenda. She married John Yuzwiak (1904 – 1984) on 29 June 1929 at Holy Ghost Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (as it was then called). They had two sons: John and Stephen. She died on 16 November 1978.
