Obituary

Catherine (Cathy) Vento was born on July 10, 1940 in the Bronx, New York, raised her family in Staten Island, New York and ultimately resided in Manasquan, New Jersey. She died at home on January 17, 2021 after a long battle with ovarian cancer, with her family at her side. Though her initial interest was accounting she developed a passion for education. She graduated from Baruch College with her B.S in Education cum laude in 1961, went on to graduate magna cum laude with a Master of Science in Education from the City University of New York in 1965. Most of her career she was a high school teacher of business education, accounting and computer applications for the New York City Board of Education, and was well loved by her students and colleagues. In 1985 she brought her skills to a role as a computer coordinator and occupational specialist for the BASIS Superintendent in Brooklyn New York, and ultimately became an assistant principal and department chair at Susan E. Wagner High School. She received multiple awards for supervisory excellence. Realizing there was a lack of adequate training material for the expanding use of office-based computing, she co-authored 29 computer application texts with her great friend and colleague Iris Blanc. She presented seminars, workshops, and mini-courses at conferences, colleges, and business schools nationwide. After retirement, she became a leader in her community at the Four Seasons in Wall Township, and enjoyed activities in the Travel club, Women’s club, Choir and charity events for Susan G. Komen Foundation.

She follows her parents Anthony and Rose Suraci, and husband of 47 years, James J. Vento. She is survived by her husband Daniel Murray and her children Christine Soutendijk and James A. Vento, their spouses Dirk and Mindi, her sister Frances Tribuzio, brother and sisters-in-law Victor, Graceann and Gloria, and her grandchildren Anthony and his wife Dominique, Tyler, Willem and Alivea.

Family and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Visitation 8:30 am - 10 am on Saturday, January 23, 2021 at Orender Family Home for Funerals, Manasquan, NJ. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow on January 23rd at 10:30 am at St. Martha's Church, Point Pleasant, NJ. For those who would like to join the Mass via Zoom, please send your email address to soutendijk@verizon.net. At a later date a private burial will take place at the Brigadier General William Doyle Veteran’s Cemetery alongside her husband James Vento. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to St. Jude Research Hospital.

I MET CATHY THE DAY SHE MARRIED MY FIRST COUSIN, DANNY MURRAY. SHE LOOKED BEAUTIFUL AND WAS SO RADIANT.
WE ALL HAD A JOYFUL, WONDERFUL TIME, AT THEIR WEDDING RECEPTION..
I ENJOYED HER COMPANY A FEW TIMES IN THE ENSUING YEARS.
WE ALWAYS HAD A GOOD TIME WHEN WE WERE TOGETHER. WHAT I ESPECIALLY REMEMBER WAS THE BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE SHE WROTE AND READ AT DANNY'S SURPRISE 80TH BIRTHDAY. IT WAS TENDER, FUNNY AND INSPIRING.
HAVING JUST READ HER OBITUARY, I'M SORRY I DID NOT REALLY GET TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH HER. SHE CERTAINLY LED A FULL LIFE AND ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH DURING HER YEARS ON THIS EARTH.
WHILE I WAS SORRY NOT TO BE ABLE TO ATTEND HER MASS IN PERSON, I AM SO THANKFUL FOR TECHNOLOGY AND THE ABILITY TO ATTEND VIA ZOOM. I'M SURE NOW KNOWING CATHY'S EDUCATION BACKGROUND, SHE WOULD BE PLEASED THAT SO MANY WERE ABLE TO ATTEND HER FAREWELL AT LEAST VIRTUALLY.
MY CONDOLENCES TO HER LOVING FAMILY AND ESPECIALLY MY COUSIN DANNY. I KNOW THAT ALTHOUGH THEY ONLY HAD A
FEW YEARS TOGETHER, THEY WERE MEANT TO FIND EACH OTHER IN THEIR LATER YEARS AND LOVED EACH OTHER VERY MUCH. THAT WAS CLEAR TO SEE EACH TIME I WAS ABLE TO BE IN THEIR COMPANY.
MAY SHE REST IN PEACE.
SINCERELY, GERI RUTH-DIOP

Cathy and I became assistant principals at Wagner HS about the same time. She was a terrific colleague and I know that our principal, Ralph Musco, considered her to be a very valued member of his Cabinet. Marcia and I offer condolences to her family.
