Catherine Fleischer Kerber passed away at the age of 99 on February 13, 2020 after a short illness. She was born on October 26, 1920 to Herman and Hilda Fleischer. Beloved wife of the late Kenneth F. Kerber, Sr., and sister of the late Valerie F. Metcalf and Alden H. Fleischer. She is survived by her children Mary K. Guillory, Catherine K. Bankston (Carl), Kenneth F. Kerber, Jr. (Jeannette), John Timothy Kerber, and Patrick C. Kerber (Donna). She was also survived by ten grandchildren, Elizabeth G. Stewart (Scott), Michael Guillory (Nicole), Amy B.

Also survived by fifteen great grandchildren and fourteen nieces and nephews.
Catherine and her late husband raised their children amongst numerous family members and friends and felt blessed to have been part of a loving family. She loved her life, her children - grand and great grand, but most of all she loved her Lord, Jesus Christ and will be happy with him in Heaven. She was active in the St. Angela Ladies Auxiliary and served as Treasurer and Secretary for a number of years.
She worked part time as an accountant for many years until her children were grown, then she worked full time as the office manager of Children Hospital.
She loved to travel and toured the United States with relatives and friends - in particular she enjoyed the Canadian Rockies. Catherine was always learning. She was avid reader and was reading a book on the War of 1812 at the time of her death.
A sincere thank you from Catherine's family to Dr. Alan Yager for the exceptional medical and personal care that he gave to our Mother through the years.
