NORTH ATTLEBORO – Katharina Elizabeth (Gotha) Civitarese, 81, of East Washington Street passed away on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital in Boston.

Born in Germany on February 8, 1939, she was the daughter of the late Johann and Marguerite (Jacob) Gotha.

Katharina grew up in Germany and moved to Roslindale, MA in 1960 where she lived before moving to North Attleboro 17 years ago.

She worked as an assembler for Northrup for 15 years before they closed in 1996 and then was employed by My Tech in Norwood, MA before retiring in 2006.

Katharina was a very involved grandmother and great-grandmother. She lived with the most positive outlook on life, even when things were tough, if you asked how she was doing she would always say “ I can’t complain, it wouldn’t do me any good” with a smile on her face. Katharina was a great cook and she loved cooking family dinners.

Katharina is survived by her children:  Rose Marie Golc of Lamperheim; Phillip Mathias of Boston, and Don James Civitarese of North Attleboro; 4 grandchildren; 2 great granddaughers and her sister, Lothan Eipp of Germany.
