KRASZLANY, Katalin (Katie)

May 28, 1913 – February 20, 2011

It is with great sadness the Kraszlany family announces the peaceful passing of Katie Kraszlany at the Fraser Hope Lodge in Hope, BC. She is predeceased by her husband of 37 years Louis Sr. (1967), brothers Frank (1941) and Steve (1980) and sister Mary (1996). She is survived by her son Louis Jr. (Wendy), grandson Adam (Dana) and granddaughter Ashley (Curtis).

Katie was born in Hungary and came to Canada in 1957. Katie, her husband and son lived in Abbotsford where she worked at the Atangard Hotel and then at Abbotsford Senior Secondary School until she retired in 1978. She earned the respect and affection of all those she worked with and everyone commented on how much a woman of such small stature accomplished day in and day out. Katie then moved from the family home to her apartment where she spent countless hours doing needlepoint and looking after her beautiful collection of geraniums and a variety of flowers on her patio. She stayed in her apartment until September 28, 2010.

The family thanks the doctors, nurses and staff at the Fraser Canyon Hospital and Fraser Hope Lodge for their care and kindness during her stay.

As per her wishes, there will be a private family service this spring.
