Catherine Rose Dimino

Catherine passed after a three year, valiant battle, with Pancreatic Cancer. She is survived by her parents Tom & Lisa Dimino of Peabody and RoseAnne Dimino & her fiancée, Ken Nugent of Malden, her brothers and sisters Marie & Glen Noble, and Tommy & Hilary Dimino all of Malden. She also leaves her nephews and nieces, Anthony, Andrew, Gianna Noble, and Josie Dimino. She will be sorely missed by her fur babies Lola and Rex.

   Catherine was born in Malden and began her education at Rainbow School in Malden where she met her lifelong friends too numerous to name. She later attended Cheverus School and Pope John High School graduating in the Class of 2006. Her love of horses started at a young age where she attended riding lessons and practiced as a working student at Revere/Saugus Riding Academy. She went on to study Equine Sciences at UNH, Business Management at Salem State, Graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Equine Management from Mount Ida College, Class of 2011.

   She worked for the Massachusetts Racing Commission at Suffolk Downs in the summer seasons and the winter seasons at Tampa Bay Downs where she met her love Jeff. Together they traveled to Louisville, where she worked at Churchill Downs as a racing official.  Sadly, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer at the young age of 29. During her struggle, she was an example to all as she handled her painful treatments with dignity and grace. Catherine never complained, always fighting her battle with the unending help of her brothers and sisters, who never wavered in their support.

   Catherine will be sadly missed by all whose lives she touched. Please celebrate her life with her family on Thursday, February 6, from 4 to 8 pm. A celebration of life will be on Friday, February 7, at 10AM in the Weir-MacCuish Golden Rule Funeral Home, 144 Salem St., Malden. Interment will be private
