Katja Marie Meszaros
December 18, 1992 - December 6, 2017
Katja Marie Meszaros was born December 18, 1992 to Keith and Joanne Meszaros, exactly two years to the day after her brother, Ezra. Her extended family included over 20 aunts and uncles, 32 first cousins, and innumerable second cousins.
She grew up on an acreage outside Biggar, Sask., attending St. Gabriel School from K-9 and BCS 2000 for her senior years. Katja was a bright, confident, and hardworking child in her school years. She was involved in cross-country and track and field, medaling provincially in both; as well as piano and voice, attaining her grade 10 and grade 8 in each, respectively. Katja received many awards over the years for her accomplishments in both.
She was also a talented composer, winning provincials three times and four other inter-provincial awards for her compositions. Katja was passionate about musical theatre; and from the age of five and on, she was involved in at least one if not two theatre productions per year. She enjoyed performing immensely and competed at the provincial level for musical theatre many time, earning first place in 2012.
Katja attended the University of Saskatchewan from 2011 to 2017 where she attained her degrees in Music and Education, both with great distinction. She sang with the Greystone Singers for five years, and the Saskatoon Chamber Choir for one. Katja adored singing in the choirs as it gave her a sense of community. She enjoyed this time immensely and was very involved whether it be the wardrobe manager, secretary for the executive or the Soprano section leader.
Katja had various summer jobs while growing up and attending university. She worked at the Majestic Theatre, Ranger Lake Bible Camp, Biggar Recreation Valley, Biggar preschool summer program and Tamarack Summer Camp. She loved working with children – they gave her great joy.
Katja had such beautiful friends and family, too numerous to mention by name, and a beautiful cat named Minou.
Katja’s struggles with depression and anxiety, which began in grade 12, were lessened greatly by the support of all who loved her. Katja was a very kind and beautiful person. If only she could have seen herself through our eyes…if love could have cured her, she would still be with us today.

"Corinne, you'll never be forgotten
That simply cannot be,
And no matter what the future brings,
Or what may be ahead, we know that
You are with us, along the paths we tread.
So rest dear Angel and be at peace,
For one day we'll join you for all eternity."
Thinking of you always and missing you…

I miss you, Dad, and always will."
Loved and missed forever by your daughter, Glenda; grandchildren, Sonya and Chad, and family

Thank you to Margaret Scheaffer for cleaning Gordon's house.
…The family
Thank you everyone who came to brother Gordon Kurbis' funeral on November 3; and a big thank you to the pallbearers and Grondin Funeral Service. It was very sad to lose the third brother in only three years. God bless everyone and please thank our Heavenly Father for all our blessings in Canada. Here's my poem I wrote about Gordon… from sister Margaret.
Brother Gordon by Margaret (Kurbis) Scheaffer
"Brother Gordon worked hard all his life,
He didn't take time to look for a wife.
I know he was lonely, and sometimes blue,
Because that's how some of us feel too!
Gordon loved his beautiful red trucks,
They must have cost him a lot of bucks.
He went out for coffee every day,
Until his poor health took him away.
It was sad to see him lying there, but
sometimes the nurses put him in a chair.
he didn't make it home no more, and
After five weeks he must have been pretty sore.
Now we pray that Gordon is in God's good hand,
And pray Chelsea and Larry will take care of his land."
