Catherine Burridge, 88, Nuangola, died Nov. 21, 2017, Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
Born Feb. 14, 1929, in Wilkes-Barre, a daughter of the late Eugene and Mary Clarke, she was raised by Patrick Gallagher and his sister, Catherine Gallagher.
Catherine was a master stained glass artisan, creating many specialty pieces for her family and others. She was lovingly referred to as Mother Goose by her neighbors because she fed every stray that came to her door, including the infamous white goose. She even adopted several of the strays over the years.
Her husband, Palmer, and a great-grandson, Zarek Yerger, preceded her in death.
Catherine will be greatly missed by her son, Dennis and his wife Rose Mary Burridge, Wilkes-Barre; daughter, Peggy Murphy, Nuangola; granddaughters, Katie and her husband Keith Abbott, Georgetown, Texas; Maggie and her husband, Max Morgan, Wapwallopen; Christina Yerger, Wilkes-Barre; and Melissa Burridge, Wilkes-Barre; great-grandchildren, Avagail Yerger, Aiden Burridge, Lou and Marty Abbott, and Mia Morgan; her beloved pets, Casper and Kitty; other family and friends.
Her passing left a void in our lives and those of her pets, and holes in our hearts which can never be filled. Bless you Nannie -Fly with the Angels
