Miss Rado was born October 26, 1934, in the Hungarian settlement of Budapest, located in Haralson County, Georgia, and came to Lorain in 1936 at the age of two with her family and remained a Lorain resident. She was a 1953 graduate of Lorain High School.

Catherine began work in the banking industry the day after graduation and was employed by Lorain National Bank from 1953 through 1970. In 1970, she accepted a position with Euclid National Bank, later Winters Corporation, in Cleveland. She retired from the Trust Operations Department of Bank One – Cleveland in October of 1996 with 43 years in the banking field.

Catherine was a member of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini Catholic Church and a former longtime member of Saint Ladislaus Catholic Church, until its closing, where she had served as a reader and was a member of the Finance Committee. She enjoyed attending mass daily at St. Frances and attending Bible Study. Catherine also attended the Ladies Bible Study Group at the Amherst Foursquare Church as well. She then began volunteering with Mercy Regional Medical Center at the Out-Patient Surgery Welcome Desk and later worked at the hospital’s Thrift Store on West 21st Street until becoming ill in April of this year. Catherine was one of Lorain’s own “ladies in Blue” for nearly 40 years, as a member of the Polish legion of American Veterans ladies Drill Team, having joined in 1955. She also belonged to the P.L.A.V. Ladies Auxiliary, having served as its President. For years, she volunteered with P.L.A.V. Post #38 at Wade Park V.A. Hospital, Brecksville V.A. Hospital and the Sandusky Soldiers and Sailors Home, and was a longtime member of the V.A.V.S. (Veterans Administration Volunteer Services). Catherine was a cancer survivor, having battled colorectal cancer in 2007 and bounced back to return to her volunteer work. She enjoyed crocheting, knitting and playing cards as well as cooking and baking, which she shared with family and friends. Catherine enjoyed polka music and attending the weekly area dances in years past.

Tennis Style Sweepstakes — GQ Report

Three lucky winners will receive a prize package that includes tickets to the 2014 Sony Open in Miami (yes, you can bring a guest), hotel and air travel, plus dinner at a restaurant handpicked by  GQ.

Baselworld 2014 sneak preview: Rado HyperChrome Automatic ...

Rado took a piece of white ceramic and transformed it “magically” into a gleaming watchcase that looks like metal. No metal was used; Rado instead used a modern and advanced materials technology. The monobloc case, injected at high-pressure, is a groundbreaking construction. As a single piece of ceramic, it contains no steel cage as many ceramic timepieces do. This makes it lightweight as well as super scratch-resistant and comfortable to wear. The final monobloc piece then goes into a special oven, where a plasma column activates gases at 20.000°C. These gases permeate the ceramic, permanently altering the composition of its surface and bringing out a brilliant metallic sheen that will never fade.

The new Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph Plasma Ceramic is another product to sum up Rado´s DNA.



Review: Rado D-Star 200 Chronograph - Gear Patrol

One of the best-selling watch brands in Europe, RADO has never quite taken hold in America; perhaps it’s the New World preference for chunkier sports watches or maybe it’s the brand’s dealer network here that favors department stores. When many people think of RADO, the image is of a sleek rectangular watch with an integrated bracelet, perhaps something one of the bad guys in Miami Vice would have worn. But like any stereotype, this narrow image overlooks a lot.

RADO’s expertise is primarily in case materials and avant garde designs, and in fact RADO was one of the first watch companies to make use of ceramic for a virtually scratchproof case, decades before the ceramic boom we’re seeing nowadays. Beyond the shiny dress watches familiar to most, RADO’s DiaStar line was a watch design milestone, albeit one established in the 1970s, with its lug-less design and Darth Vader helmet aesthetics.
