Kathleen Mae Kaufman was born on August 2, 1936 near Schefield ND, the youngest of six children and the daughter of Leonard and Minnie (Ehrmantraut) Sticka. Her family moved to Fromberg MT and eventually to Belfry MT where Kathleen graduated from Belfry High School. Following graduation she moved to Billings and was employed as a secretary. Kathleen met Elven Kaufman on September 17th at a friend’s wedding in Laurel MT 62 years ago. They were united in marriage on October 10, 1959 in Laurel MT. The couple made their home on the Kaufman farm in Lefor ND. Their marriage was blessed with five children, Cindy, Bobbi, Elvie, Laurie and Lenny and ten grandchildren. Kathleen was a devoted farmwife and mother. She was a great cook and no one left her home hungry. She enjoyed playing cards, needlework (making a set of dishtowels for all her grandkids), gardening, baking (her molasses cookies will be missed) and making noodles. Kathleen was a faith-filled woman who served as a member of St. Elizabeth’s Christian Mothers, St. Pius Verein treasurer for 25 years, and was a member of St. Anthony’s Club.

Kathleen is survived by her husband, Elven of 60 years; children, Cindy (Denis) Schneider of Lefor, Bobbi (Darren) Simons of Huron SD, Elvie (Trish) Kaufman of Lefor, Laurie (Todd) Metzger of Bismarck, Lenny (Delinda) Kaufman of Regent; ten grandchildren, Jake and Jessie Schneider, Mindy (Jesse Jalbert) and Drew Lucklum, Nathan Kaufman, Tiffany, Brianna and Travis Metzger, Jared (Tanner) and Elizabeth Kaufman.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Minnie Sticka; brothers, Adam, John and Arnie Sticka; sisters, Dorothy Spaulding and Leona Roll; son-in-law, Lorin Lucklum.
