August 11, 1935 - April 11, 2016
Katherine June (Seadore) DeBolt was born August 11, 1935 in Lakin Township, Minnesota to John and Ella (Fleck) Seadore, and passed away on April 11, 2016 at the Rock County Long Term Care in Bassett, Nebraska. Katherine had eight siblings. While Katherine was still a young lady her family moved several times to Redfish, South Dakota; Wood Lake, Johnstown, and finally to Long Pine, Nebraska. Katherine was known to have helped her father deliver ice after school, as well as working in the theater's ticket booth and delivering newspapers to the residents of Long Pine. Katherine met a young man from Bassett, Leo Arthur DeBolt, and they were united in marriage on October 14, 1951 at Ainsworth, Nebraska. To this union 10 children were born: Bobby Gene, Mary Ann, Carol June, Billy Eugene, Jimmy Lee, Betty Jane, Judy Lynn, twin boys, Jerry Lyne, and Gary Lee, and Valerie Lynn. Although times were hard, Katherine said she was never sad raising so many kids. Katherine was a very patient mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Katherine didn't have any free time to think about anything else, though it did bother her when some of the kids would fight amongst themselves. Katherine devoted her life to her children, making sure that every holiday was celebrated together as a family. She especially enjoyed the time she spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The highlight of her weekdays was watching her favorite soap operas, "The Young & the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." (She never missed an episode.) Katherine is preceded in death by her parents, John & Ella Seadore; husband Leo of 41 years; daughter, Betty Jane Hart; brothers, Johnny Seadore, and Richard Seadore (Korean War), Larry Seadore (Vietnam War); sister, Rosie Warnke, and Grandson Trayvin DeBolt.
