It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs. Kate M. Armstrong of Red Deer, Alberta. She passed away peacefully from COVID-19, at Points West Living on Wednesday, December 16, 2020 at the age of 91 years. Kate was born on January 19, 1929 in Wainwright, Alberta.

After raising her children she worked at the Drumheller Nursing Home for many years. They later sold the family farm and moved to Calgary, Alberta.
