Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Deepest condolences from Katie’s cousins in Edmonton. We were saddened to learn of Katie’s passing. Fond memories of visits with Katie and siblings in Edmonton with us. These were special get togethers for everyone. 💔💔💔 - Posted by: Dorothea Thielmann (cousin) on: Sep 30, 2020
Lee Anne is absolutely correct … the meals that Katie and her co-workers Selma Reimer and Marlene Boschmann and others prepared were wonderful … Dr. Henry Krahn, president of MBBC at the time in 1976 said: "Of all the Bible Colleges in Winnipeg, we have the best cooks!" … Katie - you did a terrific job! …"Well done - good and faithful servant!" … may you rest in peace - Posted by: Mark Trumper (former student MBBC) on: Sep 26, 2020
