June 17, 1931 - May 10, 2019
Catherine N. Cobb (Dolly) passed peacefully on Friday the 10th of May, 2019 surrounded by loved ones in the comfort of her Lake Peekskill home. Catherine was born June 17th, 1931 at Manhattan Women’s Hospital to Patrick and Catherine (Egan) McDermott. After graduating from St.Simons Stock Catholic High School in 1949, she went to work for the New York Telephone Company (1949-1956). In 1954 she married George C. Cobb Sr and together they had five children. In the year of 1960 they bought a summer home in the town of Lake Peekskill before moving permanently from the Bronx in 1975. She was hired by the town of Putnam Valley in 1977 soon after, becoming the Highway Superintendent’s Secretary. After retiring in 1999, she then worked part time until the age of 83. Catherine was an amazing kind hearted woman with beautiful blue eyes and an infectious smile. Not only did she welcome others into her home with open arms, she loved unconditionally. Her passion for celebrating holidays with her family and friends coupled with her strong Irish roots made her the queen of Irish soda bread. She loved to garden and play slots and was known by coworkers as the “Candy Lady”. Most importantly Catherine was a die hard Yankees fan. Not only did she watch every game she knew every last detail about the team. Catherine is survived by her daughter Nancy Cobb-Bischoff of Lake Peekskill, Larry Cobb (Karen) of Lake Peekskill and George C. Cobb (Debbie) of Cornwall. She is also survived by 11 grandchildren and five great grandchildren along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. She is predeceased by George Cobb Sr, George J. Roberts, her son John P. Cobb, her daughter Catherine M. Cobb, her sister Therese Jessie and her cousin Barbara Egan.
