That is hard to answer. St. Joseph, St. Anne, St. Joachim, John the Baptist and his parents are all called Catholic Saints who were all dead before Our Lord was crucified. However, the first KNOWN saint who died shortly after Our Lord's Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension was St. Stephen the Martyr. Since all the previously named persons died as Jews, I guess Stephen is the first to die as a Catholic.
