Date of Death: December 7, 2019

Date of Birth: February 1, 1955


Catherine Anne Jacob of Bath, age 64, passed away peacefully in her sleep, after a long battle against stage-four colon cancer, on Saturday December 7, 2019, at home in Bath.

She was born February 1, 1955, in New York City, of Barry M Pool, Sr and Anne C Poole (née Dailey).

Starting at age five, Catherine slowly became blind by 1977. She had sight restored in her left eye, but she lost it again by 1958.

Catherine belong to the Triangle Club while attending Princeton University where she received her BA in Linguistics. Her mobility was accomplished through her very capable Seeing Eye(c) dogs--Frieda, Esther, Kala, Kiev and Joleen.

Catherine loved to spin and knit wool, as well as read and sail, and so continued for her remaining life.

She worked for patent law firm, Carnegie Mellon institute, and for Research Cantrell, working for the environment with Congress; she raised three children and ran an on-line fiber arts business until 2014.

Catherine is predeceased by her parents and by her first husband John Boucher.

She is survived by her husband Frank, her brother Barry Pool, Jr and her sister Christine Ward; her great-aunt Marion Dailey, and her daughters
Michele Walker (Eric), Jeann-Marie Boucher and Marguerite Schrider (Bill), as well as grandchildren Cody, Reiley and Rowen; three stepchildren and five step-grandchildren.

A service in celebration and thanksgiving for the life of Catherine Jacob will held at Grace Episcopal Church, Bath, ME. Another service will be held at Saint Anne's Episcopal Church, Damascus, MD. Dates to be determined.
