OSTENRUD- It is with great sadness the family of Catherine Alice Ostenrud announces her passing on January 3, 2019, at the age of 81. Catherine was most recently a resident of Roseview Manor.

Catherine was predeceased by her husband Fritz, her parents Esther and Lawrence Major, brother Joseph Major, sisters Lois Johnson, Leona Gourley, Bernice Major and Eva King. She is survived by her brother Tom Major, and sisters Wilda (Ian) Walmark and Esther (Jim) McNabb.

Special thanks to Dr. Ek and Dr. Valente, and the nursing staff at TBRHSC for their excellent care and compassion during this difficult time as well as the staff that cared for her at her home in Roseview Manor.

What a great photo of a great person. She and I enjoyed many years of personal contact. When she or many of her family needed documentation completed by a lawyer I was fortunate enough to be the choice. A pleasant task. Sad to see her passing but she and Fritz created a wonderful family with the result, a wonderful and full life. Our condolences to all of the family. Ken Whent family and staff
