She was born January 21, 1936 in Weirton, daughter of the late Andrew and Katherine (Herman) Henderson. Catherine graduated from Steubenville Central Catholic High School, and later earned her bachelor’s degree from Wheeling Hospital School of Nursing. She then began her career working in the emergency and operating room at Wheeling Hospital and retired after 30 years of dedicated and compassionate service. Catherine was also a member of Wheeling Hospital Nurses Alumni Association. Although nursing was her greatest calling, she was a renowned cook of hot sausage and peppers which were at many of tailgates for WVU football games and parties at Seneca Lake. In her spare time, Catherine enjoyed a good book with an equally good glass of wine.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, the love of her life for 62 years, Harold D. Young; her brother Richard Henderson, her son Timothy Young.

Catherine is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and many dearly beloved, lifelong friends.
Her family would like to thank the staff at Liza’s Place for the wonderful care they extended.
As per Catherine’s wishes, there will not be a public visitation however the family would love everyone to attend her Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday, June 16, 2021, 11:00am at Corpus Christi Catholic Church, Fr.

Cathy was a special friend. We met in 1955 at Wheeling Hospital School of Nursing.We studied ,,prayed and cried together. She was unselfish in her friendship. We spent vacations together. Her parties were memorable! She and David knew how to have a good time! Her children are blessed to have her as a mother. I will miss her!
