PORTLAND - Catherine Lynne (Williams) New was reunited with her father on Tuesday, May 9th, 2017 at Maine Medical Center.
She was born on March 16th, 1953 to Clifford and Patricia Williams. She was raised in Auburn and South Portland. She graduated from South Portland High School in 1971, and then graduated from Mercy Hospital School of Radiology in 1973. Catherine worked at Maine Medical Center as a Radiology Technician (specializing in mammography), for 44 years.
Catherine was an avid knitter and crafter. She enjoyed creating beautiful blankets, bags, and other hand made gifts for her friends and family. She was an enthusiastic bird watcher and spent time watching them in her backyard. She looked forward to annual camping trips with “her girls,” Vickie, Jeannine, Denise, and Cathy. Catherine was happiest when she was surrounded by the people she loved.
Catherine was a dedicated and loving wife, mother and grandmother.
Catherine was predeceased by her father Clifford Williams. She is survived by her husband Randy New, their son Tristen New, daughter-in-law Allison, and grandson Samuel; Mother Patricia Williams; Sister Teresa Champagne and husband Richard Champagne, and their children; Brother Thomas Williams and wife Tanya, and their children. She leaves behind many other nieces and nephews.
