Deaths-Katie-KoppKatie’s family immigrated in 1926, arriving in Burwalde, Man. Pioneering was hard, made more so when their house burned, forcing the family to winter in a granary. Katie accepted Jesus as Saviour as a young girl and recommitted her life at 12. The family moved to a farm near Coaldale, Alta., in 1935. Katie and George married and settled on their own farm. They mourned a son in a drowning accident. Bible reading, singing, and attending church were integral parts of family life. Katie loved her garden, and always baked enough for a crowd. Katie and George retired to Coaldale. Katie enjoyed her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was a great prayer warrior.
