Nehouse, Catherine Obituary

Catherine Ann Nehouse, 88, of Mt. Airy, formerly of Damascus, MD died in her home on February 5, 2011.  She was born in Rockville, MD on December 15, 1922 to the late Charles and Mary Catherine Hale Moulden.  At the age of 16 she met and married Ed Nehouse and lived the remainder of her married life in Damascus.  They were together for 69 years until his death in 2008.

Mrs. Nehouse and her husband owned a small farm on Woodfield Road where they raised cattle and grew vegetables.  She canned and stored produce and was well known among her friends and family for her baking skills, sharing what she grew with her neighbors and her devotion to her beloved cats. The Nehouses were faithful followers of “The Gospel Travelers” and could often be seen strolling hand in hand through the local yard sales.

Mrs. Nehouse is survived by her daughter, Mary Catherine “Cathy” and husband Pat Milone of Millsboro, DE, her nieces Shirley Connelly and Louise Shrader, both of Mt. Airy and very special friends Bill and Anita Clark and Chuck and Joan Brauning, both of Damascus. In addition to her husband, her son, George Edward Nehouse predeceased her.
