Lillias Kathleen Rofkahr Obituary
LILLIAS KATHLEEN ROFKAHR, known to her friends as Kathie, passed away on Monday, August 11, 2014 in Banning, CA. She was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada on June 3, 1925. She met Ralph, the love of her life for 67 years, in Vancouver, Canada. They married three days later after being introduced on a blind date. They moved to Norfolk, VA in 1949 and then the Navy transferred them to San Diego, CA in 1955. After the Navy, their adventure continued in Anaheim, CA where they would spend the next 20 years before retiring to Banning, CA in 1985. She and Ralph traveled the west coast on their Harley Davidson motorcycle and the United States in their motor home, often sharing these trips with their children and grandchildren. Kathie loved reading, knitting, crocheting and baking. She never considered herself a good cook but her family would disagree with that statement. In retirement, she taught herself to use the computer and delighted in helping others with the ins and outs of computer technology. She is survived by her husband, Ralph (Joe), and their three daughters Lynda, Willa and Vanessa; three grandchildren Danielle, Christina and Steven and four great children Alejandra, Sebastian, Isabela and Julian. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Heartland Hospice Care, 1700 Iowa Ave, Suite 230, Riverside, CA 92507. Telephone 951-369-8604 www.hcr-manorcare.com
