We have lost our beautiful Cathy who passed away surrounded by her loving family on November 24, 2019 at the age of 69 at Bayhealth Medical Center in Dover.
She was born December 9, 1949 in Wilmington, DE to the late William L. Masten, Jr. and Eleanor J. Bradford Masten. She attended Padua Academy in Wilmington and began her working career at St. Francis Hospital. She went on to work at the family owned bridal shop LeMars Bridal in Wilmington. Cathy then entered the insurance industry and became a licensed insurance broker most recently with Health Insurance Associates until her retirement in 2014. In her 30+ years in the business, she participated on many committees and panels and was a past president of the Delaware Association of Life Underwriters.
Cathy loved all animals and had a soft spot for any creature that was sick or injured. In the past she volunteered for many years with Tri State Bird Rescue. She was incredibly kind and compassionate to anyone she met. In 2013 Cathy became co-owner of Caring Matters, a home health care agency. Cathy would do anything for anyone in need throughout her life with her sweet generosity. She always put others first and made everyone feel like they were the most important person in the world. She recently served on the Board of Directors of the Delaware Read Aloud Program and enjoyed reading to children in the school. In her quieter moments, Cathy enjoyed time spent with her husband at their lake home in Virginia. She also enjoyed several trips touring Italy with her husband.
Cathy is survived by her loving husband, Frank W. Castiglione of Camden, her brother Mark Masten and his wife Linda of Magnolia, and sister-in-law Carol Castiglione of Dover. She is also survived by two nieces whom she adored, Gillian Masten of New Carrolton, MD and Zoe Madonna (Michael) of Glen Mills, PA.
