Katherine Pitney

Posted in Preston Obituaries

Katherine Beatrix Kailey Pitney died August 7, 2012, at The Nebraska Masonic Home in Plattsmouth, Nebraska. She was born on August 8, 1923, at the Willows Maternity Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri.

George and Ethel Wisecarver Kailey, longtime residents of Red Cloud, Nebraska adopted Katherine on October 26, 1923, just 80 days after she was born. Seventy-five years later, after an extensive search, she was able to locate her biological family in Preston, Minnesota and was united with her half sister, Donna Mae Kulsrude Mandelko and the rest of her new family. It was a very special time for Mom to meet her new relatives and be able to connect with them for the next 14 years.

Mrs. Pitney was a graduate of Red Cloud High School with the class of 1941, which was the largest graduating class of RCHS. In May of 1941 she married her childhood sweetheart, Phil Pitney.

She was preceded in death by Phil, her husband of 67 years, who passed away March 2008, her parents George Kailey and Ethel Wiscarver Kailey, her brother, George Robert (Rod) Kailey, her biological mother, Ida H. Kulsude and her half brother, Robert L. Hahn.

Mrs. Pitney is survived by son, Roger Pitney and his wife, Gloria, of Greensboro, N.C.; son, Mark Pitney and his wife, Sandy, of Raleigh, N.C.; daughter, Janice Pitney of Raleigh, N.C.; and daughter, Susie Baker and her husband, Bruce, of Hastings, Nebraska.

She is also survived by eight grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren. Also is survived by her half sister, Donna Mandelko of Minnesota.

Katherine’s final prayer was sending love and thankfulness for her family and friends. We miss you Mom but know you are happy again in Paradise.

Services for Phil and Katherine were held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Red Cloud, Nebraska with interment of Mom and Dad together at the Red Cloud Cemetery.
