Obituary: Sister Catherine Rose Iverson, SHF

Sister Catherine Rose Iverson, SHF, who taught religious education for more than 40 years in parishes in California and Nevada, died Feb. 26 at the Holy Family Sisters' Motherhouse in Fremont. She was 92.

She was born in San Diego in 1922, was graduated from Our Lady of Peace Academy in 1940 and joined the Sisters of the Holy Family in San Francisco in 1941. In addition to her ministry in religious education, Sister Catherine Rose served as superior of her convents in San Anselmo and Reno.

After receiving a grant to attend a clinical pastoral education program in 1976, she served as hospital chaplain at Queen of Angels in Los Angeles and St. Vincent Medical Center. In 1991 she returned to San Diego to be nearer her family. The following year she became director of bereavement at St. John of the Cross Parish in Lemon Grove.

Sister Catherine Rose not only loved bowling she played on a team with the Catholic Daughters of the Americas. She was also a fan of the San Diego Padres baseball team.

The funeral Mass was celebrated on March 9, at the Holy Family Motherhouse chapel in Fremont. Interment followed at Holy Cross Cemetery and Mausoleum in San Diego on March 12, after a brief service of committal.
