Obituary: Catherine O’Reilly

Catherine O’Reilly, at 84
Catherine “Pat” (Sexton) O’Reilly, formerly of Hull, died Feb. 5, 20 days shy of her 84th birthday. 
Beloved wife of the late Robert “Chief” O’Reilly and the late Joseph Catalano, she was the dear sister of John Sexton and Mary Blake and devoted mother of Paul Catalano; Jimmy Catalano and his wife, Kathy; Anne O’Hearn and her husband, Paul; Brian Catalano and his wife, Susan; Susan Larsen and her husband, Jeff; Amy Sotomayor; and Janice O’Reilly. She was the dear stepmother of Robert; Edward; Kevin and his wife, Cynthia; Michael and his wife, Maria; and Stephen O’Reilly. 
Mrs. O’Reilly was also loved deeply by 16 grandchildren, 11 step-grandchildren, five step-great-grandchildren, and the light of her life for the past 14 months, her great-granddaughter, Reya. 
Her greatest legacy was her family, with whom she shared so many laughs and her love of the Patriots, the Red Sox, and anything sweet. She will be greatly missed but will remain forever alive in their hearts. 
Visiting hours will be Thursday, Feb. 14, from 4-8 p.m. at the Stanton Funeral Home, 786 Mount Auburn St., Watertown. Her funeral Mass in St. Patrick’s Church, 212 Main St., Watertown, will take place at 9 a.m. Friday. Relatives and friends are invited to attend.
