Obituary for Katharina Wassenaar

Katharina Wassenaar was born on April 22, 1928 in the Ukraine to the late David and Susanna (Hildebrandt) Thiessen. In 1952, the Alpha Mennonite Church sponsored Katharina to America. Rev. Noah Landis was the pastor and in that same year, she became a believer.

On March 7, 1953, Katharina was united in marriage to Jan Wassenaar at the Bethel Mennonite Church in Mountain Lake. She later became a member of the Delft Immanuel Mennonite Church. They raised three children, Rudolph “Rudy”, Rita and Irene. In 1994, Rudy had an accident and passed away. In 2015, Katharina became a resident of the Good Samaritan Society-Sogge Memorial in Windom. She passed away there on January 19, 2019 at the age of 90 years.

Katharina had a love for her families and working in her flower garden.
