Katherine Koch (nee Biegler) April 29, 1929 – May 9, 2021
“Wherever a Beautiful Soul has been, there is a trail of Beautiful Memories”

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving wife, mother and grandmother, Katherine (Kay) Koch on May 9, 2021 at the age of 92 years.

Kay is survived by her loving husband of 70 years, Ralph; her sons Brian (Sheila) and Calvin; her daughter Heather (Robert) Panas; her grandchildren Crystal Lang, Christopher (Sara), Dusty (Angel), Trevor (Amanda), Mandy and Michael; her great-grandchildren Daniel, Ben, Sam, Autumn, Sapphire, Caitlyn, Ayla and Flora; her sister and brother-in-law Gladys and Rod Macdonald; sister-in-laws Amy and Doreen; and numerous nieces and nephews. Kay was predeceased by her parents Rose and Anton Biegler; her brothers Frank, Scotty, Bill and Tony; her sisters Rose, Martha, Dorothy and Violet; her brother-in-laws Levi, Henry, Phillip and Albert; her sister-in-law Paranzem; and grandson-in-law Michael Lang.

Kay will be forever missed and fondly remembered by her family that she dedicated her life to and we are grateful for having been a part of this beautiful lady’s journey. We are pretty sure that all the Biegler Angels are having a party as Vrrej said he heard that they Re-opened the Brewery in Heaven.

Special thanks to Blaine Brooks for his help and kindness to Ralph and Calvin.

Sorry to hear about Kay. We had a nice talk recently after not being in touch for over 25 years. Kay was a great neighbour.

I will always treasure the many memories of my loving mother. It has taken me a while to come to grips with her passing as due to COVID I couldn’t be there to support her and my family in the times of need so it didn’t seem real until my wife Sheila passed last month and it all sunk in.
I miss you Mom and think of you every time I watch a ball game or open a beer. RIP

Auntie Kay will be missed, she was a special lady. In my childhood she always fussed to make sure I was comfortable when we came to visit. She was strong, and like most of her sisters, and family in charge of the situation at all time. Kay loved family gatherings and a chance to love laugh and live. God Bless

Dusty Koch

Not only an amazing grandmother but an amazing woman who helped me through some of the toughest times of my life. Always in my heart love you…
