Kathrine Eleanor (Keute) Pollard, 62, of Stillwater, passed away on the morning of April 16, 2012.

Katie was born on Aug. 30, 1949, and raised in New Ulm, Minn. Katie graduated from nursing school and spent a career taking care of the elderly but lived for taking care of her family.

Katie was preceded in death by parents, Henry and Monica Keute. She is survived by her best friend and husband of 41 years, Steve; children, Lisa, John, Dana, Andy, and grandchildren, Lincoln and Cooper, who she absolutely adored.

Katie was a meticulous knitter who loved making hats and booties for new babies and sweaters and blankets for her grandkids. She practiced unconditional love, unapologetic loyalty and old-fashioned German stubbornness. She truly lived for moments with friends and family, savoring moments of humor and love.
