J. Catherine's Story
CUMBERLAND J. Catherine Johnson, 103, of Cumberland, passed away Thursday, March 1, 2018, at the Allegany Health Nursing and Rehab Center.
Born March 7, 1914, in Cumberland, Catherine was the daughter of the late Azariah and Mary Elizabeth (Anderson) Humbertson. Catherine was the last surviving member of her immediate family; all of her siblings preceded her in death, Albert Humbertson, Ace Humbertson, Earl Humbertson, Raymond Humbertson, and LeVada Carney. She was also preceded in death by two nephews, Eddie Carney and Tommy Carney.
Catherine graduated from Penn Avenue High School. She went on to be an extremely dedicated homemaker who was also a die-hard Baltimore Orioles fan. Playing Bingo and crocheting were some of her favorite pastimes. She also enjoyed visiting Central Assembly of God in Cumberland with her family on special occasions, especially during the Christmas programs and on Mother's Day.
She was a cancer survivor for many years, a feat that was important to both Catherine and her family.
Catherine is survived by many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, great-great-nieces, great-great-nephews, and great-great-great-nieces.
The family would like to thank the staff at the Allegany Health Nursing and Rehab Center, especially those special people who tirelessly took care of Catherine (they know who they are).
Friends will be received at the Scarpelli Funeral Home, P.A., 108 Virginia Ave., Cumberland, on Monday, March 5, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A funeral service will immediately follow at 1 p.m. with Pastor Doug Seaman officiating. Interment will be in Hillcrest Burial Park.
