OBITUARY:

Martina M. Catania, passed away unexpectedly in Tampa Florida, Friday, June 2nd. The beloved daughter of Mariko (Shimabukuro) Catania of Woburn and the late Martin Catania, she was thirty six years of age.Born in Winchester, Martina was raised and educated in Woburn. Following high school Martina worked as a waitress. Being the very social young woman that she was, she so enjoyed meeting and chatting with all. Martina brought three sons into the world and they were, with out a doubt, "her boys." Spending time together was always first and foremost. Board games, walks and trips to the beach were some of the best times. One night a week dedicated to "movie night" where they would all decide on a movie. Together they would make the popcorn, get some candy, nestle right in on the couch and be entertained for the evening! Martina also loved to bake all sorts of different cakes and the children's most favorite, Toll House cookies. Celebrating birthdays and holidays were always times she would 'wow' the family with her unbelievable baking talents. Martina shared a wonderful relationship with her family. Being together for the holidays and family celebrations or to just stopping by, they all were very devoted to and protective of each other. Martina's beautiful smile, loving presence and tremendous sense of humor and unique, contagious laugh will be forever remembered. Sadly Martina was predeceased by her Dad, Martin.

Catania of Woburn, Camron Canario and Aaron Canario, both of FL; her siblings, Mark Catania, his wife Nadine of NE, John Catania, his wife Elisa of Amesbury, Cynthia Baez, her husband Mike of W.
