Kathy was born on August 26th, 1959, in Oxbow, Saskatchewan to Nora (nee Vanderlinde) and Hubert Bley. Hubert passed away when Kathy was two. Nora then remarried Leo Harder and moved to the family farm west of LeRoy where she grew up. Kathy and her older brother Doug attended school in LeRoy where she met her husband Don. They married in August of 1980. In 1985 they welcomed their daughter Andrel Nora-Lynn. They moved out to the Renz family farm in 1990. Over the years Kathy worked at various jobs in the community. Officially she retired in January of 2018. She enjoyed crocheting, knitting and watching Don in the garden. She made a mean Saskatoon berry pie and too many cookies to mention. The highlight of her day was spending time with her grandson Theo. Kathy struggled with diabetes and heart disease for numerous years. She fought hard but lost her battle at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon on New Years Eve. Kathy will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 40 years, Don Renz; her daughter Andrel (Dustin) Hartman and her grandson Theo. Also surviving are her brothers-in-law, sisters in-law, nieces, nephews and close friends. Kathy was predeceased by her father Hubert; mother Nora; step-father Leo; brother Doug; father-in-law Ted; and by her mother-in-law Lynn.
