Kathryn Klausen

November 13, 1927 — August 30, 2020

With deep sorrow the family of Kathryn Klausen mourns her passing, at home in Boelus, NE at the age of 92. A family memorial will be held at a later date. Apfel Funeral Home is assisting the family.

Kathryn attended Boelus High School and graduated from St. Francis School of Nursing in Grand Island. She was united in marriage to Howard Klausen on January 23, 1949. They raised their five children on a farm near Boelus and later moved to Doniphan. They spent 25 years of retirement in Florida before moving back to Boelus.

Kathryn cared for many people over the years. She was a RN at the Soldier and Sailors Home, but her greatest passion was the time she spent advocating for children as a Gaurdian Ad Litem while in Florida.

She will be lovingly remembered by her surviving children; Jim (Cora) Klausen, Denis (Doris) Kluasen, Susan (Alan) Cornell, Pat (Michele) Klausen and daughter-in-law, Kathy Klausen.

Additional survivors include ten grandchildren: Jimmy, Kathryn, Amy, Doug, Tracy, Ryan, Heather, Jonathan, Ethan and Molly; nine great grandchildren: Kylee, Karalynn, Kadin, Marcus, Shawnee, Brandon, Lucy, Auden and Reese; and three great-great grandchildren: Scout, Clayton and Tyler.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ray and Joyce Eilenstine, brother, Gerald, infant sister, Leila, husband, Howard and son, Paul.
