Stratulat Katherine


Born June 23, 1951 Katherine left us to join her parents Dan and Iliana Stratulat.  She is survived by her daughter Michelle (Nick) Gotsoulias and grandchildren Eleni and Demetry, son Matthew Gafencu, sisters Alice (Merv) Rayner, Pearl (Gerry) Hodges and Margaret (Rob) Senft along with many nieces and nephews. Katherine looked at things through childlike eyes and had wonder. She paid attention to the small details and remembered special things about the people she met. She sure knew how to tell a story so you could see it in front of your eyes. Katherine had many talents and was extremely creative, expressive and took great pleasure in baking, crafting, sewing and playing the drums. In earlier years, she danced with the Eminescu Romanian Dancers, and even travelled to Ottawa to dance for the Queen. She also performed with the Moldova Ensemble family group for a number of years. Katherine spent time as a clown for the Sasktel Pioneers and her clown name was Splash; she loved fishing with her dad; and enjoyed learning all the special things from her mom.
