Catherine Francis Travers (nee Conway) died peacefully in her sleep on Wednesday December 30, 2020 at the Thomas Upham House (in Medfield). She was 83.

Born in Malden, Massachusetts in 1937, she was the daughter of Michael Conway and Bridget (Kelly) Conway. She was a 1958 graduate of Salem State college and spent over 30 years teaching kindergarten in the Millis school system. She was a resident for over 60 years. Catherine, also known as Kate, Cathy, Mrs. Travers, Mom, Ma, Nana and best known as Mrs. T., had many roles in her life, but is best remembered for her love and devotion to children. As a mother of 7, grandmother of 10 and teacher of 100s, she treated every child that came into her life as her own. She was a world traveler, very proud of her Irish heritage and loved to bake.

Catherine leaves behind her beloved husband of 61 years Joseph L. Travers Jr. of Millis. She was the loving mother of Judy Travers and her partner, Robert McPherson of Revere, Joseph Travers and his wife Terry of Jacksonville, FL, Jeanne Travers Stetson and her husband Brian of Norfolk, Patrick Travers and his partner Thao Sands of Boca Raton, FL, Joanne Travers O'Connell of Millis, the late John Travers of Watertown and the late Michael Travers of North Carolina. She was also the sister of Thomas Conway of NH and the late Teresa (Conway) Mackay of Malden. She is survived by 10 grandchildren; Raleigh and Travis Stetson, Colin and Austin Travers, Caroline and Joseph Travers, Gavin, Adeline, Avery and Reese O’Connell as well as many nieces and nephews.

Funeral arrangements will be scheduled at a later date.

Private Condolence

Our condolences to the Travers family. It was a blessing to be a part of Cathy’s nursery school and then stay connected through all of you growing up in Millis. I still remember very clearly on my first day at school being hit squarely in the chin from a see saw on the playground. Cathy took me in, cleaned me up and comforted me through it. When we moved a few houses down from you decades later Cathy would walk by often and we would share that story and have a great laugh. Thoughts and prayers to your family.
