Katherena "Katie" Challborn Obituary

Katherena “Katie” Clara Challborn

September 17, 1930 – December 5, 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom (Gma), Katie Challborn, December 5, 2023 at the Erickson Nursing Home

Katie was born in Macklin Saskatchewan to parents Frank and Mary Leier. Katie attended school in Unity, Saskatchewan. After finishing school, Katie started working as a health care aid in the hospital when she met her husband, Ted Challborn. They were married and moved to Erickson Manitoba, where they farmed and raised seven children.

Katie worked at the Erickson Hospital and Erickson Nursing Home until her retirement at 65. She was very active in the community, working with the Legion Auxiliary and was involved with the Catholic Church where she was the organist for many years.

Katie was predeceased by her husband Ted, sons Kurt and Calvin. She is survived by her five children, Trudy, Ivy, Rodney, Betty and Tracey, ten grandchildren and several great grandchildren, and her sister Shirley.

Katie, very active in the community, was always there to help anyone. From knitting baby sweaters for new ones, to sweaters for seniors, and anyone in between. There is no possible way we can count the many pairs of mittens Mom made over the years. Fondly remembered as Gma by her grandkids, Katie always put family first and was always there to support each and every one near or far.

A Service and Celebration will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Manitoba Alzheimer’s/Dementia Foundation.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
