Kathrine GEYER

It is with sad and heavy hearts we announce the passing of our Kathrine.

Kathy passed away on December 17, 2008 in the Palliative Care Unit at Abbotsford Hospital with her husband Bill at her side. She was born on December 5, 1949 in Grand Forks to John and Mary Chernoff.

Kathrine is survived by her soul mate and loving husband of 38 years Bill; their daughter, Kimberly; and granddaughters: McHalia and Natasha. She is also survived by her sisters: Helen Freeman, Marie Edmondson, and Nina (David) Hague; also sisters-in-law Letty (Bryce) Key and Carol Freeman; numerous nieces and great-nephews.

Kathy fought a hard battle with Juvenile Diabetes from age 12. In September she had a heart attack followed by surgery, which came with many complications. She never fully recovered and slowly slipped away from us.

A Celebration of Life was held on Tuesday, December 23, 2008 at the Agassiz United Church, Reverend Mary Duncan officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Kathrine’s memory may be made to the Children’s Hospital in Vancouver.
