Catherine Filene Shouse (Mrs. Jouette Shouse)

"It is better to light a candle and then curse the darkness."
Good Mourning Widows. Joy to you and me.

Today we welcome famous philantropist and widow Catherine Filene Shouse wife of famous former Congressman from Kansas Jouette Shouse to our joy-ous club.

Catherine and Jouette were married in 1931.

Jouette died in 1968.

Catherine was the first woman to receive a M.Ed. degree from Harvard University; the first woman appointed Chairman of Federal Women's Prison for the Rehabilitation and Education of Women. Her appointment was by Calvin Coolidge.

After the death of her husband, Catherine continued her philantropic activities until her death on December 14, 1994, establishing the Wolf Foundation, a world renowned center for the arts.

Mourning Quote:

"The general rule is that the people who enjoy life also enjoy marriage." --Phyliss Battelle

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen.

Write something.

Go ahead.

I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
