Katherine “Tina” Krahn (nee Dyck) passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at the Meadows, Swift Current, SK with family members by her side.
Tina is survived by her children, David (Donna) Krahn, Ernest Krahn, and Tim (Angela) Krahn; her son in-law Harry Friesen; her grandchildren, Jolene Friesen (Derek Ohlmann), Sharlene (Kendall) Dunnett, Kara Friesen (Tate Cao), Kyla (Jeremy) Patzer, Landon Krahn, Kaitlyn Krahn, Brianne Krahn, and Allison Krahn; her great-grandchildren, Jacoby, Jada, and Kenzie Patzer, and Katrina and Micah Dunnett.
Tina was predeceased by her husband, John, in 2018; her daughters, Ruth and Debra, in infancy, Barbara, in 1964, and Trudy Friesen in 2001; and by her siblings.
Tina was born on September 12, 1930 in the Rhineland area and grew up on the farm at Rhineland, SK. Tina married John Krahn on November 14, 1954 and began her life on the Krahn family farm. There, she worked together with John for many years, doing chores, gardening, yard work, making many meals, and being a solid support for John and the children growing up. Besides the work on the farm, Tina enjoyed many different trips together with John and created fond memories with friends and family.
After selling the farm, John & Tina moved to an acreage they built and spent a few years of retirement there before they moved to Riverview Village Estates. After John’s passing in 2018, Tina’s health began to decline and her ability to do what she loved to do was limited. In October of 2020, Tina made the move to the Meadows and was there until her passing.
Tina will be dearly missed by family and friends and fondly remembered for her kind heart.
