It is with much sadness and love that our family announces the passing of our mother and grandmother Katherine (Tina) Paterson on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at the age of 88 in Three Hills, Alberta.
Tina is survived by her four children, Katherine Paterson, Caroline Gould (Wilf), Grant Paterson (Jennifer) and John Paterson (Sara) and her grandchildren, Nathan, Keegan, Jacob, Janelle, Isaiah, Sierra, Ethan, Sean, Gabrielle, Casendra, William and Elysia. She is also survived by her brother John Goertz (Janice), her sister-in-law Rose Goertz (married brother Albert) and her brother-in-law John Neufeld (married sister Anne.)
She was predeceased by her husband Gerald Paterson in September 1995.
Tina was born to Henry and Aganetha Goertz in Wembley, Alberta on August 24, 1930. She attended Briercrest Bible Institute in Caronport, Saskatchewan where she met her best friend and future husband Gerald and married on September 27, 1957. Tina and Gerald served as missionaries in France from 1961 – 1972 with the Bible Christian Union, after which they served as pastors in Montreal until 1976. They then moved to Caronport, where Tina worked as a Psychiatric nurse in Moose Jaw until her retirement in 1995.
A Memorial Service for Tina will be held on Friday, September 28, 2018 at 2:00 pm at Trinity Baptist Church at 22550 Township Rd 530, Sherwood Park, AB T8A 4T7 with Rev. Norm Backhouse officiating.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful staff at the Three Hills Continuing Care Unit who cared so much for Tina during her time there.
