The following loving tribute was written by Catherine’s family:

Catherine W. “Billie” Monaco (nee Rudolf) went to be with her Lord on Friday, December 22, 2017. She was 87 years old. A longtime resident of Philadelphia, PA, Billie was residing at Gloria Dei at the Park in Hatboro, PA at the time of her death. She was the daughter of the late Carl Rudolf and the late Ellen Rudolf (nee Riley) of Philadelphia.

Billie was the beloved wife of 60 years of the late Felix Monaco, and is survived by her three daughters, Catherine R. Franks and her husband Stephen, Ellen Mears and her husband Henry, and Suzanne A. Eike and her husband Clifford. She is the grandmother of Christine Woods and her husband Daniel, David Franks and his wife Angela, Rebecca Schramm and her husband Robert, Karen Dooley and her husband Robert, Amy Whitaker and her husband Wayne, and Catherine Conolly and her husband Drew. She is also the great-grandmother of Morgan and Avery Woods, Zachary Franks, Ava, Addison and Brooklyn Schramm, Peyton, Kylie and Brynn Dooley, and Jeremiah and Grace Whitaker.

Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought her much joy and she was dearly loved by all. Although heartbroken at their loss, it brings comfort to know she is in the loving arms of the Lord (John 14:1-4) and reunited with the love of her life, Felix. Her interment and services were held at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, 383 Main Avenue, 5th Floor, Norwalk, CT 06851.
