Katie was born November 23, 1951, at Rockport Colony to Andrew and Katie Waldner. She was raised at Rockport until 1963, when the family relocated to Hilldale, where she remained until her death. Katie served the colony as their head cook for 21 years. After stepping down, she worked at the school, supervising the children during lunch. She was a hard-working, loving woman who could fix anything.
Katie passed as she lived, with disregard to herself and a heartfelt ‚ÄúThank you!‚ÄĚ to her siblings for visiting and seeing her off to her final resting place, to be with her beloved Saviour Jesus Christ.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Andrew and Katie Waldner; niece, Clara J. Waldner; sister-in-law Sarah J. Waldner, and numerous aunts and uncles.
She is survived by her sisters, Sarah (David) Kleinsasser and Lena (Sam) Kleinsasser, all of Hilldale Colony, Becky (Tim) Hofer of Spring Water Colony, and Elsie A. Waldner, her roommate and younger sister with whom she was very close and loved dearly, of Hilldale Colony; brothers, Andrew (Katie) Waldner of Hilldale Colony, Jacob (Rosa) Waldner and Joe (Ruth) Waldner, all of Hartland Colony, and John (Clara) Waldner of Hilldale Colony, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Katie‚Äôs family is grateful for the compassion and care extended by all at the Northern Montana Hospital in Havre.
