Remembering Catherine

This site was created in memory of our Catherine Greenhouse. Our loving mother, sister, wife and grandmother.


Born in Louisiana

December 29, 1937

Catherine Thelma Greenhouse (83) passed away peacefully in her sleep on February 23, 2021, at the home of her daughter in Vallejo, California.

Catherine was born on December 29, 1937, in Louisiana to Raymond and Mary Swanson.  She was raised in Vallejo.  Since her retirement from the state of California as an analyst, she split her time between Northern California and Las Vegas, NV. 


Catherine was a beautiful, loving, intelligent, vivacious, charismatic, genuine, and giving woman who loved to spend time with her family and friends.  She cultivated and individualized each of her relationships as a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. 


Catherine was effortlessly multi-faceted, and she lived a good life.  She was fascinated with and actively engaged in politics. One of her proudest involvements was her work on President Barack Obama's successful election campaign. She loved to go out dancing just as much as she loved to entertain others at her home. Besides growing her relationships, some of her favorite activities she loved to participate in included gardening, gambling, and traveling to warm and beautiful countries.  

Catherine was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald Greenhouse (Las Vegas), Parents Raymond and Mary Swanson (Vallejo), sister Marva Dickson (Suisun), sister Mary Ann and her brother-in-law Paul Johnson Sr. (Vallejo).
