Obituary

Catherine was born in Laurens, South Carolina, August 20, 1922 to Charley and Lizzie Holiday. She spent the majority of her young life in Spartanburg, South Carolina. She eventually graduated from Carver High School. She also met and married James Simon. After a short length of time, he passed away.

She later moved to New York City with her sisters Dorothy and Floree during the early 1950s to better herself. Catherine worked in a button factory and later went to work at a pedal pusher factory. Even while working as a domestic, she graduated to become a professional beautician. She lived in building 2175 of Jefferson Houses in East Harlem. During this time she married Roy Higgins, which lasted for quite a while.

Catherine was a devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. She enjoyed taking care of her grandchildren and storytelling. Everyone knew Catherine for her delicious southern cooking and baking, including her sweet potato pies. She was also a devoted member of Canaan Baptist Church of Christ in Harlem.

Catherine leaves to cherish fond memories: two daughters, Julia Walker and Dara Simon; two brother-in-laws, Scotty Walker and Richard Griffin; three grandchildren, Brandon Sabbs, Sharina Sabbs and Kiambra Griffin; as well as a host of great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other family and friends. She was predeceased by her daughter Brenda Simon.

Sleep on Catherine and take your rest. You will be deeply missed by friends and family. We love you, but God loves you best.
