Booy, Katie

 Katie Booy (nee Reimer)

1957 - 2014


IMG 1666On Saturday, August 9th, 2014, our hearts torn with grief, we said goodbye to our beloved wife, mother and grandma, Katie Booy.

Katie’s health began to fail one year ago. She went into heart failure resulting from damaged heart valves from Rheumatic Fever as a child. On October 11, 2013, she had emergency valve replacements. Two days later, she suffered the loss of her son Corey. Her recovery from surgery was prolonged and difficult. On June 15, en route to visit Charlene and family, she became ill. She had emergency valve replacements for Endocarditis on June 28 in Vancouver. In spite of the excellent care by the doctors and staff at St. Paul’s Hospital she lost her battle to the overwhelming infection.

Katie was born May 11, 1957 to Gerhardt and Olga Reimer of Winnipeg. In 1976, she was baptized on confession of her faith in The First Christian Reformed Church in Winnipeg. She was married to Harold Booy on June 4, 1977. After serving two years at Bach Christian Hospital in Pakistan, they settled in Winkler, Manitoba.

Katie’s first son was stillborn. We were blessed with three daughters, two sons, three sons-in-law and six grandchildren. Katie dedicated her life to serving others. She loved unconditionally. She listened and accepted people as they were. She doted on her children and grandchildren. She will be sorely missed.

Katie was predeceased by her father, Gerhardt, her brother, Harry, and her son, Corey. She is mourned by her husband, Harold, children, Michelle and Tom Harder (Ryan, Braeden, Luke and Leah), Charlene and Todd Wohlgemuth (Kasey and Taya), Heather and Mike Hildebrandt and Kyle and many family and friends.

Funeral service at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 17, 2014 at the EMMC 600 Southview Dr. in Winkler with interment at Westridge Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Katie’s memory to the Winkler Bible Camp and Children’s Camps International.

My thoughts and Prayers are with you in this very difficult time.
I learnt to know and appreciate Katie when we worked together on Cheer Board, she definitely had a heart of caring, was always cheerful and fun to work with. When I met her after we were done our terms on the board she was always friendly and had something to say that left me walking away with a smile on my face. May you feel God's loving and caring arms around you all, He is faithful.

My prayers are with you Harold, and also to the rest of your family. I have many fond memories of Katie during our high school years. As I looked thru an old album this past week, I thank God that Katie, Willy and I shared so much time together. Those times now will be cherished memories.

I got to know Katie over the past few years and she really was a wonderful caring woman. As a cashier I get to know alot of people but she was one of the ones I really looked forward to seeing. I would have loved to visit her had I known her health was failing. My prayers are with the family and I wish you many blessings in this valley of heartache.
