    Our heart felt condolences to the family. We will always remember Kathy for her down to earth nature and sincere kindness. We played handgame with her and we won! Talented player! Had lots of fun with her. Kathy sat on the Treaty 7 Community Futures – Employment and Training Board. She was a strong advocate for training and employment for our people, always made sure their needs were considered and included in the development of criteria. We have lost a great lady.

    Calf Robe families, our deepest condolences on your very great loss. I always wanted to meet Kathy and find some of my lost heritage info Anderson family, but was unable to, I would see her only at funerals, not a good time to talk about it. Please pass on our sympathies, and who knows maybe we may meet??? Kathy have a great journey to the creator and heaven
