Catherine Crile Restivo


Catherine Crile Restivo passed away peacefully on February 7th, 2019 at her home in Naples, Florida. She was surrounded by her family and a host of angels. She was 89 years old and was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Peter and her beloved son, Joseph.

She is survived by three children, Peter, Grace and Michael; six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

She was born October 4th, 1929 in Beaverdale, Pennsylvania, to Ann and Michael Crile. She moved to Lorain, where she graduated from Lorain Senior High School and remained with her husband to raise their family. She was a lifelong parishioner at St. Anthony's of Padua. Cathy served as the secretary at Clearview High School for 30 years and always spoke fondly of the faculty and students who were so dear to her. She was a successful business woman, opening her own real estate brokerage company, Owner's Realty, which she operated for over 35 years. Cathy said the rosary daily and believed if things were done out of love, all good things would come. Cathy's passion was her family and she enjoyed their successes while downplaying her own. We like to say she possessed a "happy gene". In 2008, she retired to Naples, Florida, where she enjoyed swimming, meeting new friends and sharing the company of her two sisters, Theresa and Chris along with her two nieces, Karen and Nita.

The Restivo family will welcome guests at Gluvna-Shimo-Hromada Funeral Chapel on Friday, June 21st, 2019 between 4 and 7 p.m. A Mass will be said in Catherine's memory on Saturday, June 22nd, 2019 at St. Anthony's of Padua at 10 a.m. Immediately following Mass, there will be fellowship brunch at RedTail Golf Club, Avon. The family will then travel to Johnstown, Pennsylvania for a private service, where Catherine shall have her final resting place with her husband, Peter at St. Anthony's Cemetery, Johnstown Pennsylvania.
