Catherine A. Buffett—1/16/2014

Catherine A. Buffett, a resident of Lansdale for 58 years peacefully entered into eternal rest on January 16, 2014. She was the loving wife of Anthony F. Buffett who preceded her in 1978.

Born in Shamokin, PA. in 1927, she was the daughter of the late Dominick and Concetta Varano Peronace.

A 1945 graduate of Shamokin High School, she was employed as a seamstress and later devoted her life to her loving family.
Known for her homemaking skills, she was always sure you never left empty handed. Her “white coconut cake” will always be remembered.

Mrs. Buffett is survived by her loving daughters, Dr. Constance A. Buffett and Mary E. Buffett, with whom she resided in Lansdale and her grandson Anthony F. Buffett for whom she waited for 78 years to fulfill her life. Also surviving are her sisters Vera Peronace of Shamokin and Josephine Novack and her husband Lawrence of Shamokin and Louise Zaleskie of Hackensack, NJ and nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her loving son Dr. Francis A. Buffett in 2009 and her sisters Rose Quarequio, Elizabeth Peronace and Mary Machinski.
