Catharine (Howell) Zander, age 72, long-time resident of Los Altos, CA, passed away at home on 15 August 2020 from ALS (Lou Gherig’s disease). She is survived by Paul Albert Zander, her husband of 51 years; her children Virginia (Craig) Joplin and David Zander; and grandson Julian Anderson. Cathy was born to Thomas and Mary (Simmons) Howell in Cleveland, OH on Labor Day, 1947. The irony was her dad’s complaint that he couldn’t take an extra day off work for the birth because it was already a holiday. She was the oldest of four siblings: Mariette (Howell) St-Germain, A. Allen Howell, Robert Howell, all of whom survive her. On 16 August 1969, she married her best friend, Paul Zander in Cleveland. One year later, the couple moved to Los Altos, CA and became active members of the community.
