Katherine Dolezal

1926 – 2018

We are sad to announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, and babcia, Katarzyna “Kathy” Dolezal, on Sunday, April 22, 2018 at the age of 92 years.

She was born to Rose and Stephan Andruchow on March 21, 1926 in Lubaczow, Poland. During the war, she was taken away from home at age 16 to work in Germany. After the war she moved to England, then eventually to Canada.

She was a hard worker and raised 4 children. She loved cooking, dancing, gardening and later in life, bingo. Her greatest joys were her grandkids and great-grandkids, and their parents too.

Kathy was preceded in death by her husband Jerry and her son Michael.

She is survived by her daughters Maria (Ron) Sander, Christine (Barry) Groves and Joanne (Brian) Gedrasik. She was a loving grandma to Trina (Kurt), Jeremy (Crystel), Erin (Evan), Aidan (Jess), Jordan (Megan), Janine (Chad), Andrew (Terri), and Patrick; as well as a beautiful babcia to Kyla, Griffin, Tyson, Grace, Madison, Alex, Darwin and Osian.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 11:00am on Friday, April 27, 2018 at ST. MARTHA’S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 355 Columbia Blvd. W., Lethbridge, Alberta, with Father Salvador Ahumada, celebrant.

Family and friends are invited to pay their respects one-hour prior at the church.

A private family interment will be held in the Mountain View Cemetery.

Mom you taught us well and will always be in our hearts.

Visit to send a private condolence.
