Catherine I. Nahodil was born in Shamokin, PA in 1915. The name of her parents have not been confirmed at this time but it is believed that she was the daughter of either Frederick or Julia Nahodil.
Catherine was raised by her grandparents, Rudolf and Rosamond Nahodil, and was listed as Rosamond’s adopted daughter in 1930. Rudolf passed away in 1929 and when Rosamond died in 1939, Catherine was still living at home.
The 1940 U. S. Federal Census shows that Rudolf and Rosamond’s daughter Julia (Nahodil) Snyder has now moved into the home that Rosamond and Catherine shared and Catherine is now listed as Julia’s daughter.
Catherine married William M. Johnson in 1940, after the census take recorded. Catherine and William had lived a block apart on Franklin Street for at least the previous five years.
The plastic marker show in the image above is all that marks the location of Catherine’s cremains.
