Katharina Goering Stucky, daughter of Johann and Fren [sic Freni] Krehbiel Goering, was born Oct. 5, 1875 near Moundridge, Kan. where she grew to young womanhood and also received her elementary training. She received her catechetical instruction into he Hopefield Mennonite Church and was baptized upon the confession of her faith by Elder Jacob Stucky on Oct. 4, 1891. After the Eden Mennonite Church was organized she transferred her membership and remained a member at Eden until her departure.
On June 9, 1895 she was married to Christian C. Stucky and thereupon took up the role of mother to four stepsons and one stepdaughter, loving and caring for them as if they had been her own. They were permitted to share life's joys and sorrows for almost 40 years. This home was broken on April 14, 1935 when her husband was called to his reward. This union was blessed with 13 children, eight sons and five daughters.
She enjoyed good health until 15 years ago when she submitted to surgery. She recovered from it very well and again piecing quilts and doing things around the house. In 1963 she entered the Memorial Home near Moundridge where she made her home and enjoyed the fellowship of aged friends.
In July of 1963 she had the misfortune of falling and breaking her hip. She again had to submit to surgery but through the skill of the doctors and the will of God she recovered again and could come back to her new home. She remained bedfast up to the time of her death.
