Catherine  Minteer


Catherine Minteer, a longtime resident of New Castle, was called home to our Lord, with family at her bedside, on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at UPMC Jameson Hospital. She was 95.
Born on Dec. 24, 1923, she was one of five daughters to the late Glenn and Jennie McClain.
A loving mother, grandmother and friend, she enjoyed reading novels, jigsaw puzzles and listening to Gospel music.
Her beautiful life will be forever cherished in the lives of her children, Darlene E. Burton and David Mercer, along with six grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.
Her family will remember her as the hard working, strong-willed woman, who believed in the importance of Jesus, family and love. Her wittiness and humor will continue to be shared and passed down through her family and friends.
Honoring her wishes, there are no calling hours and the service will be private.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Ed and Don DeCarbo Funeral Home and Crematory, 941 S. Mill St.
