Catherine T. "Katie" Cairns Obituary

Catherine T. “Katie” Cairns

January 23, 1928 – November 28, 2022


     Catherine T. “Katie” Cairns, 94, Hollidaysburg, formally of Ganister, rural Williamsburg, passed away late Monday night, November 28, 2022, at the Hollidaysburg Veterans Home.

     She was born in Ganister, daughter of the late Nicholas Krajacic and Anna (Verbonitz) Youchison. Katie was twice married, first to Frank T. Fitzingo and then to Oliver R. “Olly” Cairns who both preceded her in death.

    Surviving are a daughter, Christine Imler-Drake (Bill) of Duncansville; a son, Bob Fitzingo (Judy) of rural Williamsburg; a cherished grandson, Scott Imler (Tammy); two sisters: Doris Keyes and Gloria Jean Brown; special step-daughter, Jerri Wietz (David) and their children Jeffrey and Samantha.

     She was preceded in death by four brothers: Michael, Nicholas, and John Krajacic, and Joseph “Butch” Youchison; and a sister, Helen Kaufman.

     Katie retired in 1988 from the Hollidaysburg Veterans Home as a dietary aid after 18 years of service. She was member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, Williamsburg and a lifetime member of Bonner-Sollenberger American Legion Post 456 Ladies Auxiliary, Williamsburg.

     She enjoyed keeping a neat home and finding projects to do around the house. Katie enjoyed the outdoors but most of all loved spending time with her beloved dog, Abby, family and friends.

     A private graveside interment will be held at the convenience of the family.

     Memorial contributions donated in Katie’s name may be given to St. Judes Children Research Hospital 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN. 38105 or to Hollidaysburg Veterans Home-Activity Fund 500 Municipal Dr. Hollidaysburg, PA 16648.
