On May 8, 1916 Katherine Marie Hustoles (3.John2, 1.John1) was born in Chicago, the daughter of John and Katherine (Bannon) Hustoles.

As a young child Katherine lived with her family in Cicero, Illinois on 47th Place where she attended St. Attraca Catholic church and school. The family moved to Chicago for a short period and then to the suburb of Maywood where her parents purchased a new home on 13th Avenue. This is the neighborhood she best remembers where she and her sisters and brother spent their formative years attending St. Eulalia Catholic church and school, for it was here from which she graduated high school.

The Depression came, along with hard times, and in 1934 the family had to sell their home in Cicero and move back to Chicago again, where they rented a smaller home on Fifth Avenue and Tripp. In Chicago, Presentation Catholic church once again became the family parish and it was here that Katherine married George A. Cote, Jr. on September 19, 1936.

The Catholic church played a dominant roll in Katherine's childhood and her faith and service to her church community would become foremost during her adult life. She raised two children, Katherine and George III, in Broadview, Illinois. It was here also that the family owned and operated a paint and decorating company, Cote Enterprises, Ltd. Katherine took an active role in the business where she managed the office for several years.

In the late 1960's they built a larger home in Westchester. Her daughter, now married, built a home next door. They spent ensuing years here close to children and grandchildren.

George died of colon cancer on June 13, 1985. Katherine followed the same fate three and a half years later on January 14, 1989.
