Catherine Puskas Obituary

Catherine Anne Puskas, age 81 passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, at St. Vincent’s Hospital, in Bridgeport, CT.  She was born April 15, 1942, in Bridgeport to Joseph and Anna Puskas.  She grew up in Fairfield, CT and graduated from Andrew Warde High School in 1960.  She went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry in 1964 from Mary Washington College at the University of Virginia in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Cathy had a few different careers in her lifetime but retired from Yale-New Haven Hospital in 2007.

In 1992, Cathy met Robert (Bob) Minasian, Sr., and began a fun and loving relationship which lasted 27 years until the time of Bob’s death in 2019.  Cathy loved to cook, bake, and entertain. She liked hosting coffee hour fellowship at Long Hill United Methodist Church in Trumbull, CT.  She also loved donating cheesecakes to the church for their monthly spaghetti suppers.  She and Bob Sr. looked forward to going to the Mohegan Sun Casino for well-known entertainers and dinner.  They had much fun together going to the movies, shopping, enjoying performances of the New Haven Philharmonic Orchestra, and watching their favorite television shows together.

Cathy enjoyed talking to people and never met a stranger. She always had wonderful stories to tell and often apologized for “talking your ear off”.

Cathy is survived by the family that loved her as their own, Bob Minasian, Jr. (Sandy), David Minasian, Cindy Fernandes; Kyle, Bradley, and Hannah Minasian, and Robert (Bobby) Fernandes, who all adored her as Grandma Cathy; and her nephew, Peter Puskas.

Cathy is predeceased by her parents Joseph and Anna Puskas, her twin brother, John Puskas, and the love of her life, Robert Minasian, Sr.
