Catherine Graviano Hoose, 82, of Palm Bay, died on July 30, 2021 in Palm Bay. She was born July 15, 1939 in Brooklyn, New York to Joseph P. and Anna Morales Graviano.

Her family includes her daughter Lynn (Ron) Whelpley; son Eric (Raina) Johnsen; brother Anthony (Kathy) Graviano; granddaughters Christine Whelpley, Jessica (Craig) Olesnevich and great grandchildren Max, Audrey, and Nicholas.

Cathy raised her family in Patchogue, New York eventually retiring to Florida. She received Jesus as her Saviour and was baptized at the Garden Ridge Church of Christ in Lewisville, Texas in 1995. There was a thin line between family and friends, as she loved everyone and they loved her. She was a gracious hostess, a strong shoulder, and a warrior.

She will be laid to rest at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery in a private family ceremony. Donations to the Alzheimer’s Foundation would be appreciated by the family.

I'm glad to have had you as one of the 3 moms growing up, and later to have you added as my Aunt. You were a fun and cheerful person who's company was always enjoyed. The crazy lady who also brought my uncle Bob happiness. Thank you.
