Catherine died on 23 September 1912 at Royal Avenue, Onchan at the age of 30. She was the beloved wife of Samuel Skillicorn and she was buried in Onchan Churchyard on 25th September.

Apparently the stone was picked, almost at random, by members of the family as it had been cut (but not lettered) without a specific client in mind.

The gravestone is in poor condition and the lettering and designs are not easy to pick out.

The photographs below give some idea of the beautiful design, lettering and deterioration of this example of Knox' work.
