Catherine “Cathy” Matteson, of Moon Township, passed away at Sewickley Valley Hospital on the morning of Sunday, June 30, 2019 at the age of 74.

Cathy retired from United Airlines in 2008, after more than 20 years of service. During her time at United, she worked at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Illinois, and the Pittsburgh International Airport in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Cathy is survived by her three children, Shelli (James) Gelzheiser, Stephan (Susan) Zajacs, and Heather Cavallo-DiYanni. She is also survived by her six grandchildren, Benjamin and Hailey Gelzheiser, Zachary Zajacs, and Alyssa, Alexis and Dominic DiYanni.

During her retirement, Cathy enjoyed spending sunny days at the pool with good friends and family. Cathy was a great friend, loving mother, and a passionate grandmother. As a grandmother and “Nana”, her devotion and adoration of her grandchildren was second to none. If there was a game, performance, or special achievement, Cathy was there cheering you on as your biggest fan. As a family, we know she will be watching over us and be with us in spirit every day. Her presence in our lives will be missed tremendously, and she will never be forgotten.
