|Catherine Irene Hartt was born in Rawlins, Wyoming August 24, 1917. to John Kelly & Minnie Pearl (Spragg) Hartt. Like her sisters, she lived in Wyoming and spent the summers in Hahn's Peak, CO. .
Catherine married my father, Thomas William Keffeler, in 1949. Together, they had two children, Catherine and Theanne. Both children were born in Oakland, CA – Thomas’s hometown.
Catherine and Thomas owned a hardware store in Estes Park, CO. After their divorce, Catherine eventually relocated with the girls to Santa Barbara, CA. She was a registered dietitian - something she was inspired to do partially because her father (John Kelly Hartt) was a diabetic. She did get to meet both her grandchildren, Stephanie and Erica Ferron and loved her role as grandma!
Catherine died in 1980 and is buried in Santa Barbara, CA.
