Katherine Mary McDonald (nee Klein), 64 years, of Lanigan passed away on Sunday, January 2, 2022 at Central Parkland Lodge, Lanigan. Kathy was born on November 25, 1957 in Macklin, SK to John and Katie (nee Beler) Klein. She grew up in Denzel and attended school there. Following high school, Kathy moved to Kindersley where she began her banking career with the CIBC. It was while living in Kindersley that she met Kieth McDonald and the two were married on September 2, 1978. Over the next 14 years they lived in various communities, Kathy always working in the local bank. In 1992, they moved to Lanigan where she would live until the present. She worked for a couple of years at the CIBC in Humboldt and then began working at the Credit Union in Lanigan where she worked until retirement in August 2019. Kathy and Kieth enjoyed travelling and in the years since he passed away, she took several trips with her good friends. Kathy’s happy place was at her seasonal site at Good Spirit Lake, where she could spend time with her family and friends, sit around the campfire and enjoy lake life. She loved to golf and for quiet time she would read. Kathy was very active with the Lanigan Food Bank and was involved in various communities over the years with “Relay for Life”. Above everything else, her grandchildren were her pride and joy and time spent with them was always special. Kathy will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her two sons, two daughters-in-law and five grandchildren: Ryan (Lynn) McDonald of Lanigan and children Morgyn and Hudson and Chad (Kali) McDonald of Regina and children Layla, Cash and Sadie; siblings: Don (Betty) Klein, Robert (Doreen) Klein, Gerald (Susan) Klein, Jane Jenny, and Dennis (Jeanne) Klein; and by members of the McDonald family.
