KATHERINE FLAHR

Katherine Flahr passed away peacefully Saturday, October 13th at Heron Grove in Vernon. She was born on March 12, 1916 in Battleford, Saskatchewan to Michael and Marie Schroh as the eldest of twelve children. In November of 1936 she married Paul Flahr; they farmed in Luseland, Saskatchewan where they had five of their seven children. In 1952 they moved to White Rock, BC where the twins were born. In 1974 Paul and Katherine moved to Cherryville where they owned the Country Store. They settled in Lumby for the remainder of their years together. Katherine was predeceased by husband Paul in 1995 and son Lawrence (Deane) Flahr in 2005. Survived by her loving daughters Mary Flahr of Victoria, Josie (Joe) Stead of Maple Ridge, Leona (Bruce) Longstaff of Aldergrove, Karen (Doug) Braun of Lumby, Sharen (Clint) Foisy of Lumby, as well as 14 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Katherine had many hobbies, she loved gardening, crocheting, knitting and cooking but most of all, dancing! She was a member of the Royal Purple in White Rock as well as the OAP Hall in Lumby. Later in her life Katherine met Leo Headington at a barn dance in Lumby, soon after they fell in love. The family would like to thank the wonderful care Katherine received at Heron Grove, Cottage 2 for the past year and a half. Katherine was a wonderful, kind person who will be dearly missed. Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hands. There will be no service as requested by Katherine.
