February 13, 1926 – September 23, 2018
With heavy hearts the family of Katherina Sokol announce the passing of our dear sister, auntie and friend. The Lord took our loved one peacefully in her sleep on September 23, 2018 at the age of 92. She will always be remembered by her sister Theresia Ritz and brother-in-law Frank Ritz, her nephew Frank Ritz Jr (Angie), her niece Rosemarie Ritz and grandniece and nephews Katherine (Filip), Frank Jr. and Adam. Predeceased by her loving husband William in 2011 and parents Theresia and Andreas Rechner.
Katherina loved her garden of incredible flowers of chrysanthemums and African violets. She also loved our family of dogs (Bella, Dixie, Tazzie and Ra). She worked hand in hand with her loving husband on their orchard.
One of the biggest enjoyments in her life, was to lavish her family lovingly with her exceptional cooking, loved by many were her cabbage rolls and heavenly potato salad. She so enjoyed treating her loved ones to delicious baking like her strawberry chocolate shortcake. She was also an expert crocheter. She was a great blessing to all and we will miss her terribly.
