At the age of 85, Catherine Marie (Glennon) Villano of Eastham, formerly of Marlborough, passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family on November 19, 2017. Born in Milford in 1932 and the first born of 6 children to James and Mary (DeVenuto) Glennon, she graduated from Milford High School in 1949 and went on scholarship to study French at Boston University.

Devoted mother and Nana, she is predeceased by her eldest son, Michael, and leaves behind his wife, Mary, of Meriden CT, and their children Elizabeth and Michael, her son James (Delores) of Southbury, CT, and their children, Matthew, Caitlin, Meghan and Jack, and her daughter Catherine of Franklin, and her daughter, Juliana.

A fantastic cook, she was known to entertain friends and family with delicious feasts. She and her husband welcomed many to their Cape Cod home over the years as a popular gathering place.
Her sharp wit, exceptional creative abilities, along with her natural instinct to solve any problem she encountered, set her apart. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
