On December 26, 1945 Katie married Albert Faesser at Rottenburg an der laaber, Germany. The couple made their home in Rottenburg, Germany, where they were blessed with 2 sons, Art and Vic.

Katie was a dedicated wife and mother. She was an avid gardener of both flowers and vegetables. She and Albert could often be found working together in their garden. She enjoyed canning, cooking and baking. She baked homemade bread every week for her family, and sometimes would treat them to one of her specialties, apple strudel.

Katie's life was enriched when she became a grandmother. She cherished the times when all of the family was together.

Katie was a long-time member of St. Luke's Catholic Church in Ogallala where she had been active in the Altar Society. She also really enjoyed being involved in the Birthday Club and RSVP as a volunteer over the years.

Katie was preceded in death by her parents, 3 brothers and 3 sisters.
