Remembered with love, Katie passed away on December 22, 2022 at the age of 91.
Katie (Katarina) was born on March 19, 1931 in Osterwick, Ukraine, the sixth of seven children of Dietrich and Agatha Rempel (nee Neufeld).
She was predeceased by her parents; her sisters, Mary Toews (John), Helen Dyck (Abe), Ann Lehnert (Alex) and her brothers, John Rempel (Mary) and William Rempel (Justina).

Katie immigrated to Canada in 1951 and in 1952 she married Steve Jordanov. The marriage ended after 12 years. Katie devoted her life to raising her six children, with the help of her siblings and her strong faith in God. In the mid-1970s she joined the Salvation Army Corps. She enjoyed many years of being a member. Singing in the church choir gave her great joy.
The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at Bethania Mennonite Personal Care Home and Elaine of Comforts of Home-Care Inc. for all the care, compassion and support given to our Mom and our family during the last six years.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
I first met Katie or Mrs. Jordanov as a teenager. What sticks most with me is her laugh and how full of joy and peace she was. I remember how she shared her faith as well as the wisdom and knowledge she gained through, The Bible, the good times and hard times. She shared this wisdom and knowledge with her family and all who knew her. Testifying to that faith through the ways in which she navigated the ins and outs of life. This wisdom carries on even now through her children, their children and the lives of those she touched. She is the last of her sisters and brothers – what a joyful and endless reunion it will be to be reunited with all whom she loved! We know "The Good Lord" has welcomed you with open arms into your heavenly home, and that you are resting peacefully in the arms of your creator, whom you dearly loved! Love and prayers to the family. XO - Posted by: Pam (Friend of Mandy) on: Jan 04, 2023
I am very sorry for the family's loss. She was always very kind to me and my children. We haven't spoken in a very long time however I would like to express my condolences to the family. - Posted by: Melanie (Ex granddaughter in law) on: Jan 03, 2023
Oma welcomed me into her family with open arms & an open heart. She was the kind of person that loved you for who you were and not who she wished you would be. She loved you unconditionally with her whole heart never judging (just like Jesus would). I recall that she loved to have current pictures of her loved ones & she wouldn’t hesitate to remind you that she needed an updated family picture for her wall. I remember how she loved having family over, her table filled with a meal to share. I am sorry to say that I hadn’t seen her for many years now but her love & her smile & her laugh & her strong accent will stay with me. I often think of how she had this pet bird- pretty bird & how she would lovingly care for her little feathered friend it was very endearing. She gave me a gift one Xmas many years ago it was a stationary set & inside the quilted box was a sample of her roll on perfume which was her signature scent. I took it out of a storage box a few days after she passed & I rolled some of that perfume on my wrist …it reminded me of what a strong & beautiful woman Oma is. I love you dear sweet Oma & I’m happy that you are in peace & that you made it home for Christmas. Love always, Gloria - Posted by: Gloria Dueck (Mother to her great granddaughters ) on: Jan 02, 2023
Katie and I started out as in-laws, yet soon became friends. Through the years we would always find a quiet spot and talk about how blessed we were with our families. And yes, we would hug and shed a tear, but it was a happy tear. Katie and I also experienced raising our children alone, and our faith in Jesus Christ. We were sisters in the Lord. - Posted by: Marilyn Parker (friend and inlaw) on: Jan 01, 2023
My sincere condolences to all the family. Oma was always very kind and supportive of me. - Posted by: Catharine Hunter (Ex-daughter-in-law) on: Dec 31, 2022
